Banks and Naomi have been the talk of the wrestling world since Monday’s episode of Raw after walking out on the show.
The pair refused to take part in their scheduled main event match, and after discussions with Vince McMahon, decided to leave the building.
In a strange turn of events, WWE released a statement on the matter, declaring that Banks and Naomi didn’t like how they’d been treated as champions.
Banks and Naomi haven’t commented on the matter, and after releasing their statement, neither had WWE, that was until SmackDown last night.
On the show, after saying that the pair had “let us down”, Michael Cole announced that WWE had suspended Naomi and Banks indefinitely.
He also said that a tournament will take place to crown new WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions, suggesting the pair have been stripped of their belts.

Banks and Naomi, as of right now, have both yet to comment on their suspension from WWE, but we’ll keep you updated if either does release a statement.
It’s worth noting that this suspension doesn’t seem like it’s part of a storyline and seems very much legitimate.
Fans have been left surprised at how open WWE has been with regards to the whole situation, as things like this are usually kept behind closed doors.
For what it’s worth, WWE has removed both Sasha Banks and Naomi’s merchandise from WWE Shop, so it definitely seems like this is a legitimate suspension, and again, not part of a storyline.
This situation is a developing one, so please stay tuned to GiveMeSport over the coming days and weeks for more updates on the matter as new information comes to light.
