After walking out on Monday Night Raw in May alongside her tag team partner Naomi, Sasha Banks has reportedly been released by WWE.
Former Raw and SmackDown Women’s Champion Sasha Banks hasn’t been seen in WWE since she and her tag team partner Naomi walked out of Monday Night Raw on May 16th. The two were last seen on WWE television on the May 13th episode of SmackDown. At the time, the two were said to be frustrated by creative decisions that reportedly would have seen Naomi win a six-pack challenge and go on to face Bianca Belair for the Raw Women’s Championship at Hell in a Cell.
On that night, WWE released as statement that labeled the women as unprofessional, and Corey Graves made it clear on the broadcast that they had “summarily and unprofessionally walked out.” The company also removed all merchandise related to the women from their online shop, and stripped the two of the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships.
I'm hearing Sasha Banks has been released. I don't know if it's he requested it or if it was on WWE's end

The report has yet to be confirmed by other outlets, with Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful saying that he could not obtain confirmation from his sources within WWE but that this wasn’t indicative of whether or not the release had happened. As of now, Sasha Banks remains listed on the WWE.com roster page.
