WWE sends a strong message after Sasha Banks and Naomi's gesture

In the latest edition of his Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer discussed WWE's reaction to Sasha Banks and Naomi's abrupt exit from the arena during Monday Night Raw, which apparently was strong enough and delivered a direct and understandable message to all backstage workers.

Ringside News described what the McMahon company has put in place: "The company's actions paint a clear picture for other wrestlers who are unhappy and plan to leave while they are under contract: we will bury you if you do."

Indeed Dave Meltzer said, "The fact that they buried [Sasha Banks and Naomi] ... Again ... It just tells you the mood they were in. They were in a very strong mood and I also know it was absolutely meant as a message for talent: don't go out during a live show, because we will bury you.

Whether or not it matters to talents, I don't know, but it was absolutely a message for everyone there to say that, again, you can discuss things and whatnot. You can question things and everything and that's part of the deal.

I think the problem was getting out ... So, that's how they handled it."

The latest news on Sasha Banks and Naomi

WWE legend and current AEW star Mark Henry believes calling Sasha Banks and Naomi on air after their walkout was wrong.

For those unaware, The Boss and The Glow walked out from RAW due to rumored creative differences ahead of a six-pack challenge to determine Bianca Belair's next opponent. WWE initially, after what happened, had released a statement shortly after the episode of Monday Night Raw, talking about what had happened to explain to fans why they had not been able to offer the main event promised to them at the beginning of the episode of the show.

But at the end during the last episode of Friday Night SmackDown, the company formalized the suspension for the two, announced by Michael Cole at the comment table, who also added that the two are no longer champions and that the belts will be put in grabs in a tournament.

Sasha Banks and Naomi have also been removed from various WWE-related content and platforms and the situation for them could get worse sooner than expected and very quickly. Becky Lynch and Corey Graves have mentioned the former champions on WWE programming.

The former recalled them leaving the arena, and Graves was allegedly directed to state that they "summarily and unprofessionally left the arena." It wasn't well-received by fans and several other talents.
