Sasha Banks has been replaced by Cody Rhodes in WWE's signature “Then, Now, Forever” intro.

The aftermath of Sasha Banks and Naomi's WWE RAW walkout hasn't been pretty in the least. The two stars have been bashed on commentary, and their merchandise has also been removed from the official WWE Shop website. Additionally, WWE recently announced that the duo had been suspended and that they had let everyone down with their actions.

WWE has now erased Banks from its “Then, Now, Forever” signature intro and replaced her with top RAW Superstar Cody Rhodes. The American Nightmare is one of the hottest acts on WWE TV at the moment. He returned to WWE at WrestleMania 38 with a big win over Seth Rollins. He's been on an impressive winning streak on WWE TV ever since.

Sasha Banks is seemingly unbothered by WWE's actions

The WWE Universe remains quite divided over Banks and Naomi's walkout on RAW. A large number of fans have supported the duo and bashed WWE in the process. Many other fans continue to support WWE on social media and call for strict action against the two stars.

So far, Banks hasn't reacted at all to the controversy. She was recently spotted at a concert. Judging by her demeanor, Sasha seems to be having the time of her life and isn't bothered by recent events.

Former WWE Champion CM Punk was among those who stood up for Sasha and Naomi on social media. The current AEW star urged the WWE locker room to stand up for them in a heartfelt message:

"Doesn’t matter if your opinion of your coworker is positive or negative. Stand with them. Because they’ll do the same thing to you and you’ll wish someone helped. Trust me. You’re expendable. Together you’re unstoppable," Punk wrote.
Doesn’t matter if your opinion of your coworker is positive or negative. Stand with them. Because they’ll do the same thing to you and you’ll wish someone helped. Trust me. You’re expendable. Together you’re unstoppable.

Punk has stood up for wrestlers' rights on various occasions in the past. The iconic "Summer of Punk" storyline in 2011 was rooted in reality as Punk talked about wanting to see his co-workers being treated well on several occasions.

The future looks bleak for Banks and Naomi in WWE, as the company is repeatedly taking severe measures against them.


What are your honest thoughts on this situation? Did Banks and Naomi mess up big time? Or were they on the right side?
