• CM Punk Fires Back At Zack Ryder For Making Fun Of The Sasha Banks – Naomi Situation
The biggest news in the wrestling today is Women’s Tag Team Champions Sasha Banks & Naomi walking out of last night’s RAW.
In the statement that WWE issued about this situation, it was stated that Sasha claimed she & Naomi weren’t respected enough as the Women’s Tag Team Champions.
NWA World’s Heavyweight Champion Matt Cardona (fka Zack Ryder in WWE) made fun of this situation by tweeting the following:
“If I could go back in time…the night I was pushed off the stage in a wheelchair on RAW, I should have walked into Johnny Ace’s office…placed my neck brace on the table and walked out because I wasn’t being respected enough as Internet Champion.”
