On the latest episode of SmackDown, WWE announced that Sasha Banks and Naomi have been indefinitely suspended and stripped of the Women's Tag team Championship.

On Monday Night RAW, the duo walked out of the show after leaving their titles in John Laurinaitis' office. They were slated to compete in a six-pack challenge to determine Bianca Belair's challenger at the upcoming Hell in a Cell.

The massive bout was scheduled to headline the show, with Becky Lynch, Nikki A.S.H., Doudrop, and Asuka being the remaining four competitors in the match.

WWE later issued a statement on the situation, stating that Sasha Banks and Naomi claimed they weren't respected enough as champions. The duo was allegedly uncomfortable in the ring with two of their opponents, who were not mentioned in the report.

On SmackDown this week, Michael Cole announced on commentary that the higher-ups had decided to suspend Sasha Banks and Naomi and vacate their titles. In the future, a tournament will be held to crown the new WWE Women's Tag Team Champions. Moreover, Cole added that the women let everyone down with their actions.
