A new report on Sasha Banks and Naomi notes that WWE removing their WWE Shop pages does not indicate a release of any kind.
As we’ve noted, Banks and Naomi have been suspended indefinitely after walking out of last week’s RAW, and they are no longer the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions. You can find links to our various reports on the Banks – Naomi situation below. It was reported on Friday that WWE pulled all Banks and Naomi merchandise from WWE Shop, and then word came out over the weekend that their Superstar Facebook pages were pulled.
In an update, Fightful Select reports that the WWE Shop removals are a part of the indefinite suspensions, and WWE has reiterated that the removals do not indicate a release of any sort. This is a unique move for suspensions, but it ends there.
Regarding the Facebook pages, WWE controls those accounts and that is also a part of the suspension. The Twitter pages for Banks and Naomi are still active because they are generally created, owned and managed by the actual performer, and WWE doesn’t have control over them, at least for the most part. Banks and Naomi have been quiet on the whole situation.
As expected, Banks and Naomi are not scheduled for tonight’s RAW as the suspensions continue. However, PWInsider notes that they are still listed on the internal roster. WWE still has them listed on the public SmackDown roster.
There’s no word yet on when the tournament to crown new WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions will be held, and there’s been no indication that an end to the situation is in sight, as of today.
