• Some Wrestlers In WWE Wanted To Do Exactly What Sasha Banks & Naomi Did
WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions Sasha Banks & Naomi walked out of RAW because they weren’t happy with their Hell In A Cell 2022 plans.
WWE was planning to book Bianca Belair vs. Naomi for the RAW Women’s Championship and Ronda Rousey vs. Sasha Banks for the SmackDown Women’s Championship at Hell In A Cell, which Bianca & Ronda both retaining their Titles against the Women’s Tag Team Champions.
Sasha & Naomi weren’t happy about the fact that WWE had no plans for their Tag Team Titles and walked out.
According to PWTorch, some WWE wrestlers have no sympathy for Sasha & Naomi, while some wish they could do the same thing:
“I can say there are people in that locker room – colleagues of theirs [including] active wrestlers, and otherwise, who are disappointed and not sympathetic to the way Sasha and Naomi handled this.
And there are others who, yes, think this is a cool thing that they did. And they sort of wished that they had the guts to do something like that and take a stand.
So I mentioned Naomi’s contract is coming due in WWE. And there had been some rumblings that maybe this was related to contract issues and not wanting to look like they were being sacrificed right before to take some leverage away or just spend some of their equity right before their contracts come due.
We don’t have details on when her contract expires, just that could have been a contributing factor in the frustration of Naomi and perhaps Sasha, that, we’re going to take away some of your leverage by having you do pretty high profile jobs in the midst of a tag team title reign that they were excited about.
I think there’s some sympathy for certain details of why they walked out but not a lot of sympathy for walking out before a show. But when it gets right down to it, Sasha and Naomi could not have stayed and done that match without making things worse for WWE.
If Naomi won the match and earned the title shot and you do that and then Naomi says I don’t want to go through with this, now WWE has more of a mess to clean up than simply announcing the six-pack challenge that WWE needs to rework on short notice.”
