• Major Update On Sasha Banks & Naomi’s WWE Status
As we reported recently, Sasha Banks & Naomi have come to an agreement with Stephanie McMahon & Triple H to return to WWE, because their main issue was with Vince McMahon and Vince has retired.
According to the Wrestling Observer, their return to WWE TV could happen anytime now, as they have been listed on the internal roster sheet again.
Speaking of Sasha & Naomi walked out of WWE a few months ago, Stone Cold Steve Austin asked Charlotte Flair about this situation on Broken Skull Sessions.
Below is what Charlotte had to say:
“I know what it’s like to jump on social media and read these headlines that are so far from the truth.
So I don’t know what happened, but what I can say is I can never imagine never wrestling Sasha again. We started together. She’s my Ricky Steamboat.
[Naomi & I] just had a hell of a match on SmackDown and I’m like, ‘Oh there’s unfinished business there because of circumstances and storylines.’
I just can’t imagine not working with them. But in terms of what they’re going through, it’s not my place to speak on behalf of the company or for them, because I’m not there right now.”

After Sasha & Naomi walked out, they were suspended and stripped of the Women’s Tag Team Championship.
Tonight on RAW, the new WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions will be crowned, when Dakota Kai & IYO SKY face Raquel Rodriguez & Aliyah.
