Many fans watch WWE programming week in, week out, and overall it is good, but there have been those weeks where fans have been confused by the company's booking decisions.

WWE's creative decisions haven't been the best in recent years, with one of the most recent times where fans haven't been happy with the company's booking decision being the Women's Money in the Bank ladder match at the Money in the Bank pay-per-view.

WWE booked for James Ellsworth to climb the ladder during the match to unhook the briefcase and drop it down to Carmella waiting below. The spot received a chorus of boos and complaints from fans online, only for WWE to have the match again two days later on SmackDown Live with a clean finish.

Appearing recently on the Sam Roberts podcast according to Sportskeeda, Monday Night RAW superstar Sasha Banks took shots at WWE's creative department for their decision to have Ellsworth unhook the briefcase in the original match.

She said: "Knowing our company, everyone was talking about it and that is what they wanted."

The Boss also sounded off about how different WWE's booking is between NXT and the main roster, saying how frustrating it is not knowing what they're going to be doing in the next three months.

"We kind of always knew where we were going, so it helped me prepare and think about it ahead of time about how can I make this better. But when I go to Raw, it's legit like I have no clue what I am doing so I don't even know what to prepare for.

"I get handed something and told something and am like 'okay, I have one hour to get... okay let's just do it.' Honestly, I wish we had the opportunity to know what we are doing in the next three months."


Banks also marked off on the booking of the RAW Women's Championship, complaining about how it constantly changes hands, saying: "I don't know if it was something with me or they just want to keep on flipping flopping, I don't know!"

She also was annoyed that she had to do PR in Australia as well during the Mae Young Classic, saying: "'How am I not a part of this?' I can't believe they booked it like that."

This interview took place before SummerSlam this year, where Banks captured the RAW Women's title on the show against Alexa Bliss, only to lose it eight days later on this week's show.

This certainly wouldn't have been a booking decision The Boss would have approved of, as she said on the podcast: "So for this match this upcoming Sunday I really just want to show that I can do it, and I have not won a match at the Barclays Center at a big pay-per-view either, so I just need to show to myself that I can do it and show to the company that I can do it.


"I really want to go down in history as the greatest Women's Champion of all time, as I am already going down as the greatest Women's wrestler."

Following the RAW Women's Championship match on RAW this week, Nia Jax came down to the ring and attacked Bliss, so it looks like that will be the storyline WWE goes with for the RAW Women's title, and not with Banks. This is bound to be another booking decision which The Boss disagrees with.

This does sound like a legit concern for Banks, and being one of the more talented superstars in the WWE today, she deserves better booking.
