Unhappy with their creative direction for the show, and their treatment since WrestleMania, the Women’s Tag Team Champions decided to leave before the show started.
Soon after, WWE released a statement on the matter, and on Friday Night SmackDown a few days later, it was announced that the pair had been suspended.
Not only that, but WWE has also stripped Naomi and Sasha of their tag team titles, announcing that a tournament to crown new champions will take place soon.
And now, in a worrying update, it seems like the situation surrounding the former Women’s Champions isn’t over yet.
Reliable Twitter source WrestleVotes is reporting that, while some WWE stars on social media have been seen to support Naomi and Banks, the feeling isn’t shared by those in power.
The report goes on to explain that the situation is expected to “get worse before it gets any better”, which will come as worrying news for fans of the pair.
After talking to a few people, I gather this Sasha / Naomi situation is going to get worse before it gets any better. While the majority of the support online is in their favor, its quite the opposite with management.— WrestleVotes (@WrestleVotes) May 22, 2022
It’s worth noting that the pair ARE NOT expected to be released by WWE, with it being believed that management wanted to fire them, they’d have done it by now.
For more news on this situation, definitely make sure you stay tuned to GiveMeSport over the coming days as we look to keep you posted with any updates on the matter.
WWE fans could also be left worried with Naomi’s social media activity, with the former SmackDown Women’s Champion deleting all references to WWE on her social media page.
