Sasha Banks is reportedly the one who decided to walk out of WWE RAW last night. PW Torch's Wade Keller added that the situation is still unclear as the stars they were meant to work with did not have a 'Nia Jax-like' history in the ring.

Sasha Banks and Naomi stunned the WWE Universe last night by walking out of RAW. The women's tag team champions were unhappy with the booking and left the arena after handing the titles to Head of Talent Relations, John Laurinaitis.

While speaking on PWTorch VIP's show, Wade confirmed that this was not a work and that the two women actually left the building. Keller said:

"What I can report is this is not a work. The people that I communicated with directly in WWE tonight after RAW indicated that this was Sasha and Naomi working together but leaning a little more towards Sasha being the leader and them working each other up but Sasha kind of leading the way into making this decision."

Continuing to talk about the situation and how there was no history with any of the stars involved in the main event, Keller added that Sasha Banks and Naomi seemingly did not have a pre-existing issue with anyone in that match:

"By the way, there's no history of Doudrop or Nikki having a reputation for being rough in the ring. This isn't a Nia Jax type of situation… that's not a thing with them…I don't think there was an issue with Asuka or Becky either. There's not a history of personal issues between them. So the idea that they were uncomfortable in the ring with two of their opponents is not something that I know the details of, like who and why? I can just say that I asked around and there wasn't a pre-existing issue with Naomi and Sasha and anyone in that match."
