Sasha Banks walked out on the May 16th episode of WWE RAW along with Naomi following a creative meeting with Vince McMahon. Later, Raj Giri of Wrestling Inc reported that the company had released Sasha Banks.
Following Giri’s report, several rumors circulated on social media about Sasha Banks’ status with WWE. However, Sasha Banks and Naomi are still listed on WWE’s internal roster page.
Therefore, Raj Giri has given another update on Sasha Banks’ situation. Giri stated that Banks was released from WWE on June 10th, and her release was handled by Erika Schreiber, VP of Business and Legal Affairs for Talent Relations. However, WWE has not publicly addressed the situation because the company is trying to “smooth things over” and wants to re-sign her.
“Here’s what I know about Sasha Banks. She was released on June 10th and it came from Erika Schreiber, VP of Business and Legal Affairs for Talent Relations.
As for why WWE has not said anything or removed her, the rumor is that leadership is trying to smooth things over.”
“With everything going on with Vince, they do not need more bad PR, especially with a popular top star. It makes sense to want to get her back”
“Just to be clear, Sasha Banks’ release was done by Erika Schreiber, VP of Business and Legal Affairs for Talent Relations. Not that the news came from her. I would never out a source.”
Since they walked out, Sasha Banks and Naomi have not publicly commented about the situation. But Naomi has tweeted about John Cena’s 20th anniversary, which took place this past Monday Night RAW. She stated, “I’m only mad I missed you this time.”
Nhoj you’re the best thank you for all the encouragement and feedback you’ve given me through my years and for the best tours ever ☺️ I’m only mad I missed you this time lol ( there’s always this amazing energy shift whenever you’re in the building)— Trinity Fatu (@NaomiWWE) June 28, 2022
