Latest regarding Sasha Banks and Naomi heading into the May 20th 2022 edition of Smackdown

As previously reported, women’s tag team champions Sasha Banks and Naomi reportedly walked out of WWE RAW due to creative issues with Vince McMahon.

According to Mike Johnson of, it does not appear that either Sasha Banks nor Naomi are in Grand Rapids, MI for tonight’s WWE Smackdown. Naomi reportedly did not travel with her husband Jimmy Uso to Smackdown and Sasha was said to have been on a plane heading to Minneapolis from Orlando last night.

During The Masked Man Show, former WWE writer Kazeem Famuyide commented on the matter…

“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?” (quote courtesy of
