Sasha Banks and Naomi not being paid during suspension from WWE
As previously noted, Sasha Banks and Naomi were indefinitely suspended by WWE after walking out of RAW on May 16th 2022.
In the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com stated that Sasha and Naomi have been indefinitely suspended without pay. According to people close to the situation, Sasha and Naomi’s merchandise being pulled was meant to send a message to the rest of the locker room.
Meltzer added that the company also has the right to freeze their contracts although it’s a different scenario from the past because other wrestlers were still being paid while their deals were frozen. Naomi reportedly has around two months left on her contract and could possibly seek legal representation to get out of the situation.
Meltzer also wrote the following in regards to how people reacted to the walkout…
“There is a lot of locker room conjecture and talk about Banks and Naomi, largely with Banks being portrayed negatively as Naomi supporting her friend but not being the catalyst of it. Even those who would normally not be pro-management were not anti-management in this case.”
