The story about Sasha Banks and Naomi walking out of WWE Raw just got a little bit weirder.
PWInsider reports that the original plan for the main event was for Naomi to win the main event, which means that she would have become the number 1 contender for Bianca Belair’s Raw Women’s Championship. This is odd because Naomi walked out with Banks and the walkout is what forced the change to the main event plans. So essentially, Naomi hurt herself by leaving with Banks.
As was noted earlier, Banks had a meeting with Vince McMahon about the creative that was laid out for the 6-Pack Challenge match. Banks was unhappy about what was planned and she stood her ground. Vince McMahon chose not to make any changes and then Banks made the decision to leave the building with Naomi joining her.
During the show, Corey Graves stated that Banks and Naomi’s decision to leave the building was “unprofessional.” The plans for 6-Pack Challenge were scrapped and the match became Asuka vs. Becky Lynch in the main event. As noted earlier, Banks may have been unhappy prior to tonight because a few days ago she unfollowed the official WWE account and a bunch of Superstar accounts. She also unfollowed Vince McMahon.
We’ll pass along updates when we hear more.
