Sasha Banks & Naomi: Roman Reigns could influence their WWE future

Roman Reigns WWE

Roman Reigns could play an important role in what happens next for Naomi and Sasha Banks within WWE.

For those that don’t know, Naomi and Sasha Banks refused to compete on Monday Night Raw this week, leaving the building before the show had even started.

The pair were upset about the handling of the women’s tag team division, and after Vince McMahon didn’t remedy the situation to their pleasing, they decided to walk out.

And now two days later, the future of the former Women’s Champions within WWE remains rather unclear.

Dave Meltzer has said, on the latest Wrestling Observer Radio, that Roman Reigns could very much influence what happens next.

Reigns is WWE’s top star right now, and the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion has a lot of sway backstage with officials.

The reason this situation concerns him slightly more than others is because of his cousins, and Bloodline stablemates, The Usos.

Jimmy Uso is married to Naomi, so Meltzer suggested that Reigns could influence the next steps after the walkout.

Meltzer suggested that if Roman backs Sasha and Naomi and supports their walkout, the pair are not likely to face any form of punishment.

However, if Reigns decides to side with WWE and condemn the pair, then their futures may be up in the air.

It’s worth noting that this is just Meltzer speculating based on Roman’s relationships and sway with WWE, and is certainly not a concrete report.

However, based on how much power Roman has within WWE, and who he’s related to, it’s certainly not out of the question to think that he’ll have some say on the situation.
