Booker T Speaks Out About Sasha Banks And Naomi’s WWE Walkout

Those who endorse Naomi and Sasha Banks moving out of WWE Raw, according to Booker T, are on a slippery road. Booker spoke out about the former Women’s Tag Team Champs, who are suspended by WWE. Despite having a significant role in the planned main event match, the two women allegedly walked out just before WWE Raw last week.

The company responded by dethroning them and plans to hold a tournament to crown champions in the coming years. Several major wrestlers, such as Mickie James and CM Punk, have come out in support of Banks and Naomi in the days since, but Booker T is not one of them.

He simply believes the situation should have been handled differently. I understand if they wanted to go out and get the job done, then come back and say, ‘Hey look, whatever you’ve got planned for us going forward, we’ve got to talk about it, or we’re not in for it.’ But for anyone to support getting up and leaving the show, it sets a precedent for guys willing to stand out and quit the show.

Neither Banks nor Naomi have publicly commented on the situation

Neither Banks nor Naomi have publicly commented on the situation, and that hasn’t stopped the story from taking numerous twists and turns over the past week, from WWE’s initial statement and various punitive measures to reviews of creative disagreements to rumour on whether the entire thing is a work. Booker T, for one, believes it isn’t, but wishes the incident hadn’t gotten so much attention.

He stated, “I just think this whole situation could have been avoided in front of the media.” I believe that all of this being in the media is exaggerating it to the point where we’re looking at it as if we’re hanging on the edge, wondering what’s going to happen next. Everyone is wondering what will happen next, especially since Banks’ and Naomi’s WWE agreements are apparently due to end soon. The pair are rumoured to be on their way to All Elite Wrestling, and WWE may freeze their contracts to prevent them from defecting to AEW.
