Sasha Banks and Naomi, former couple champions of the WWE main roster, had left the arena where the Monday Night Raw show was to be held, on May 16 after a big disagreement on the direction of their booking, with all the creative team and in especially with Vince McMahon and John Laurinaitis, who were very saddened by their behavior.
In fact, initially, the booking of the evening provided for the participation of both women in a six-pack challenge match in the main event to decree the number one contender for the Raw title held by Bianca Belair, with Naomi who should have even won the contest, so their release forced the backstage team to quickly change the script, airing a simple 1 vs 1 between Asuka and Becky Lynch at the last second.
In the last few weeks that Vince McMahon has been in office as Chairman, WWE has literally burnt earth around its two athletes, eliminating them from any on-screen and off-screen references and also eliminating their Facebook pages and references in the WWE Shop.
official, in which their items and gadgets for sale have disappeared. All this was obviously wanted directly by Vince McMahon, who, however, is currently retired and out of the family company and who is succeeded by his daughter Stephanie as CEO and his son-in-law Triple H as regards the creative part.
Backstage News on Sasha Banks
In recent days, it seems that Triple H has managed to reconnect many former WWE athletes that Vince McMahon had fired or otherwise inexorably removed from the family company, such as Dakota Kai, who returned to show up at SummerSlam, or Karrion Kross and partner Scarlett returned in the latest episode of the WWE blue show.
Apparently, Sasha Banks and Naomi would also be on their way back to WWE, but at the moment there is no official date yet on when we will be able to see the two in action on the company's square. Meanwhile, Sasha Banks came back to life in a public event, at C2E2, in the company of some colleagues, such as Naomi or other AEW athletes, with a completely new haircut and, above all, a completely new color.
During a recent appearance on the Starrcast V media scrum, Paige stated that Sasha Banks was a big part of the women's evolution and believes that the latter could return to WWE with Triple H as the new head of creative.
"She's a big part of it [the women's evolution]. Everyone loves Sasha Banks, right? The Four Horsewomen, in general, are such a big part of the women's revolution. I think she'll be back. Now with Hunter in charge and taking the reigns, just SummerSlam, in general, showed how much WWE has changed overnight," Paige noted.
