Jimmy Smith Speaks About Sasha Banks/Naomi Situation
by ALTAMUSH NAYYER KHAN | VIEW 1535
Sasha Banks and Naomi have been making headlines ever since they walked out of WWE Raw. They were at that time the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions. However, many people believe that all of this might be work. WWE Commentator Jimmy Smith recently spoke about what he believes happened and whether or not this entire thing is a work or not.
“This is not a work,” Smith said. “This really actually happened from everything, I wasn’t there I was calling the show, from everything I’ve been told, everything that the WWE is saying happened.
Now obviously there are many sides to the story, I don’t know why Naomi and Sasha Banks walked out, I don’t know why. I’ve heard rumors but I’m not going to repeat them because it’s innuendo and I don’t know.
My point is, a lot of people when this was first released on Instagram, half the comments were ‘this is a work,’ it’s not, this legitimately happened."
Famous WWE Commentator Jimmy Smith Says The Situation is 100% Real
He added, “One thing you will see in the WWE, from the time I’ve been there, when they say ‘This is our main event,’ something goofy may happen in that main event, there might be slight differences but they’re not going to say ‘this is our main event’ and pull the rug from out under you.
They will not advertise the main event and pull it out from under you. They want to know that you as an audience member will generally get the match that you thought you were going to get. “If you stuck around to 10:45 to get this match, that’s what you were going to see and what’s upsetting to the people behind the scenes on this one is they advertise the main event, I got up there on the microphone and Corey Graves to my left said ‘Six women tag team match…’ then we sat down and we didn’t, we meaning the WWE, couldn’t deliver that main event.
Not happy about that. He then praised the WWE commentary team for handling the situation well, as they themselves did not know about the situation as it was happening. “The person who showed it to me said ‘This is 100% real, dude.
We just got a text saying WWE has released a statement, be sure everybody sees it,’ I was like ‘You’re kidding me, nope, really?’” Jimmy Smith said. “It’s not work, not work. How it unfolds I have no idea but I don’t know any more than you do.
It was 100%, it was late notice, which really affected the broadcast. Great stuff from Corey Graves, great stuff from Byron Saxton, great stuff from Kevin Dunn because we were changing stuff all night because of this”.
