The wrestling world continues to react to the situation involving Sasha Banks and Naomi following Monday’s episode of WWE Raw where the two stars walked out.
Now, Dax Harwood has shown his support to the two WWE wrestlers on social media as the AEW star, who is good friends with Banks, tweeted: “Always, always, ALWAYS stand up for what you believe in. F**king ALWAYS!!!”

Naomi was originally scheduled to win the 6-Pack Challenge on Raw but Banks and Naomi walked out of the building at the start of the show after handing their WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles to John Laurinaitis. Because Banks and Naomi left the venue, it forced WWE to rewrite parts of the show and the main event had to be changed.
The company later issued a statement, which made it clear that Vince McMahon is not happy about what went down. McMahon learned of the news just as the show went on the air and had Corey Graves say that the duo acted unprofessionally by walking out.
The Becky Lynch-Adam Pearce segment was done to explain why the 6-Pack Challenge was changed and was reportedly pitched “on the spot” with one source crediting Lynch for her quick thinking.
Prior to Monday’s Raw, WWE did have plans for Banks at Hell in a Cell while her tag team partner was supposed to challenge Bianca Belair for the Raw Women’s Title at the same show.
As previously noted, CM Punk responded to a tweet by Matt Cardona for seemingly mocking the situation.
