Former WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions Sasha Banks and Naomi have not appeared on WWE programming since successfully defending their tag team gold against Natalya and Shayna Baszler on the May 13 episode “SmackDown.” Hmm. Banks and Naomi were reportedly ejected from “Raw” on May 16 due to creative differences, and were subsequently suspended and stripped from the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship. Called Banks and Naomi “unprofessional” to Cole and Corey Graves, claiming to have disappointed millions of fans.
However, this didn’t stop Banks and Naomi from exploring other opportunities. I did my best for New York Fashion Week where they walked the runway. Banks was seen wearing a sleek, steely dress in the meantime Naomi showed off a more form-fitting ensembleBanks and Naomi were also recently seen watching an MLB game between the New York Yankees and the Minnesota Twins at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, NY. They were joined by “Raw” superstar Bayley and his WWE Hall of Famer Titus O’Neal.
Banks and Naomi clearly had issues with Vince McMahon’s creative vision, but many feel the return of the former WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions is inevitable now that McMahon has retired. Paul “Triple H” Levesque, currently WWE’s Chief Content Officer, shared his thoughts on Banks in an interview with BT Sports’ Ariel Helwani.
Levesque praised Banks, saying it was up to her what she wanted to do next. According to reports, Banks and Naomi will eventually return to WWE.
