Booker T discussed Sasha Banks and Naomi during his latest Hall Of Fame podcast.
The two stars are expected to return to WWE after walking out in May due to creative differences as Banks was sup WrestlingNews.co was the first to report that Banks and Naomi reached an agreement to return.
The original idea was for Naomi to challenge Raw Women’s Champion Bianca Belair at Hell in a Cell while Banks was supposed to challenge then-SmackDown Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey at this same show.
“I definitely was one that was hoping to see Sasha as well as Naomi come back. I thought both of those guys were leaving the way they did, I was wondering if they were going to come back. I remember you asking, ‘How would I have done it?’, and I said, ‘I would have done it (the job), and then I would have left’, because that’s one thing that the business, and it’s not just myself. I’ve heard other wrestlers, the veteran wrestlers that have been around that have said the same exact thing. They said they would have done the job and then left because it’s like tradition. I think losing that tradition factor in the business, man, that right there is where the rubber met the road as far as the situation went as far as whether we were going to work it out or not because it was a little bit different than the tradition of the way wrestling has always been dealt.”
