Sasha Banks & Naomi walk out maybe due to contract issue

The main event was scheduled to Six pack challenge featuring Sasha vs Naomi vs Becky vs Asuka vs Doudrop vs Nikki A.S.H. But later it was announced to Asuka vs Becky because of Sasha & Naomi walk out.

PWinsider broke the news first reported Sasha was not happy with booking of the six pack challenge match, raised her concern but McMahon sticked to his original plan, Sasha was not happy so she made the decision to walk out of Raw.

WWE released a statement that said Sasha & Naomi claimed they were not respected enough as a tag team, they claimed they were uncomfortable in the ring with two of their opponent….

Dave Meltzer on the latest Wrestling Observer Radio noted that there was more to the story, he noted there could be some sort of contractual issue. It had a affect not only to Sasha but also to Naomi.

“Naomi was going to win the match and challenge Bianca Belair for the championship on the pay-per-view. So, it wasn’t about them getting buried in the match or anything like that, but there was something that happened and it may have to do with a contract situation with one or both of them. But, it was both of them. I think that some of it was like Sasha was the one and Naomi left with her, but from what I was told, it was both of them. It wasn’t like one followed the leader or anything like that.”
“…So yeah, some issues with the contract. I think that more will probably be coming out as to the ‘why?’ and what they were unhappy about. It wasn’t something that just happened tonight. Some of it was building up and things like that.”
