WWE Women's Tag Team Champions Sasha Banks and Naomi have been in the headlines after the two walked out during Monday Night RAW.
The originally planned main event of the show was a six-pack challenge to determine the number-one contender for RAW Women's Champion Bianca Belair at Hell in a Cell. Reports have suggested that Naomi was originally expected to win the match.
According to PWInsider, there are some who believe that WWE was going to start a feud between Sasha Banks and SmackDown Women's Champion Ronda Rousey later this week. However, both Naomi and Banks were going to fall short in their quest for singles gold.
"The conceived storyline idea was that Naomi would then go on to Hell In A Cell and lose to Bianca Belair. There are some who believe that at this week’s Smackdown, an angle would have also been shot for Sasha Banks to wrestle and lose to Ronda Rousey, likely also at HIAC. So, the Women's Tag Team Champions would have effectively been used to put over the Raw and Smackdown Women's Championship titleholders in the weeks ahead," reported PWInsider.
Sasha Banks reportedly has backstage heat following this incident

"I mean, there’s a lot of heat on Sasha Banks right now, as there would be and I’ve heard from people you know not in management."
