• WWE Edits Out Sasha Banks In A New Video
Back in May, WWE suspended Sasha Banks & Naomi for walking out of RAW. They were also stripped of the Women’s Tag Team Championship.
Raj Giri of Wrestlinginc reported in June that WWE has released Sasha.
However, PWInsider then reported the following:
“Banks and Naomi remain listed on the active WWE roster internally. There has been no change in their status made internally since they walked out on that RAW taping several weeks ago.”
After this report came out, Raj Giri reported the following:
“Here’s what I know about Sasha Banks. She was released on June 10th and it came from Erika Schreiber, VP of Business and Legal Affairs for Talent Relations.
As for why WWE has not said anything or removed her, the rumor is that leadership is trying to smooth things over.”
In an update on this situation, PWInsider is now reporting that Sasha & Naomi were removed from WWE’s internal roster list a few days back.
This week, Paige’s WWE contract expired and she became a Free Agent.
WWE posted a video on YouTube looking at the Top 10 moments from Paige’s career. One of those moments was Paige’s return in 2017.
The original footage that was shown on TV when this happened had Sasha Banks lying in the ring with Mickie James.
In this new video, WWE chose a different camera angle where only Mickie was visible. They edited out Sasha.

• Old School Wrestling Veteran Celebrates His Birthday
Old School WWF/WCW Veteran Salvatore Sincere aka Johnny Gunn (Real name: Tom Brandi) turns 56 today.
Tom Brandi is probably best remembered for his time in the World Wrestling Federation (1996-1998) as Salvatore Sincere and later also under his real name.
Some early 90s WCW Fans will also remember him as Johnny Gunn, who often teamed up with “The Z-Man” Tom Zenk.
He’s still active on the independent scene every now and then and rumor has it, that he’s using the gimmick of “The Patriot” (including the same gear) but allegedly without Del Wilkes’ (The Patriot in WCW & the WWF) permission.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TOM BRANDI!
