According to a new report, Sasha Banks and Naomi could be heading back to WWE in the very near future.
Sasha Banks and Naomi haven’t appeared on WWE TV since walking out of the May 16th edition of Raw. Following what was reported as a row over creative, the former Women’s Tag Team Champions left the taping while it was in progress.
On the following episode of SmackDown, WWE confirmed that the pair had been suspended without pay, after handing their titles to then Head of Talent Relation Johnny Laurinaitis on the way out.
More recently, following the departure of former WWE Chairman Vince McMahon, it was reported that the company reached out to both Sasha Banks and Naomi about repairing the relationship between all three parties and come to an agreement on a return for the duo.
Now, during the latest episode of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer reported that Sasha Banks and Naomi are expected to be back in WWE “any week now”. Bryan Alvarez added to this, saying that they are once again listed on the WWE roster internally.
The walkout led to the Women’s Tag Team Championships being vacated and a tournament was held to crown the new champions. This culminated in a final on Raw between IYO SKY & Dakota Kai and Raquel Rodriguez and Aliyah.
To the surprise of many, it was Rodriguez and Aliyah who picked up the win in Pittsburgh to become the new WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions.
