Following the shocking walk-out of WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions Sasha Banks & Naomi on this week’s episode of Raw, many have questioned how this situation will affect the future of both performers.
An update has now been provided regarding both Sasha Banks & Naomi’s current contracts with WWE, from Kazeem Famuyide of The Ringer’s The Masked Man Show saying that he heard the pair was in contract negotiation & their current contracts are nearly up.
“I did hear that their contracts were like… they were in negotiations for renewals, and I don’t know how soon it is but I think Sasha & Naomi’s contracts were set to expire within the next 2 months already right? So I mean, that’s another caveat there where we’re just like “ok”, like what happens if their contracts just run out while they’re doing this?”Kazeem Famuyide
This revelation certainly provides an interesting new factor to consider, with a potential contact expiration allowing either woman to appear wherever they please as soon as their current deal is up.
Famuyide noted that there is “so much unspoken, so much unknown in this situation”, and ensured listeners that he wouldn’t share information recklessly. With Famuyide being a former writer for WWE, it is likely that he still has friends within the company.
This, of course, is still a developing story, with new information seemingly being revealed every few hours. As always we will keep you updated as soon as we hear more.
