Sasha Banks and Naomi are rumored to be returning to WWE soon.
A new report from WrestlingNews.co notes that an agreement has been reached for Banks and Naomi to return to WWE. There is said to be belief that we may see them return on tonight’s post-SummerSlam edition of RAW, or in the near future now that Executive Vice President of Talent Relations & Head of Creative Triple H is running most of the show.
A return by Banks and Naomi has not been confirmed by any other sources as of this writing, but it was reported last week that WWE officials were trying to work things out with Banks and Naomi following the retirement of Vince McMahon.
As we’ve noted, Banks and Naomi both removed WWE from their Instagram profiles, and Naomi removed WWE from her Twitter bio. WWE deleted both of their official Facebook pages, and they were also removed from the WWE TV intros at one point. Banks’ avatar was also removed from Peacock. It was reported earlier this month that Banks and Naomi were removed from the internal WWE roster, and that the WWE creative team is operating on the assumption that they are not returning whatever. One creative source added that they have not heard of any contingency plans or creative preparations in the event that things change to where Banks and Naomi return. There’s also been no update or internal talk on the tournament to crown new WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions.
It’s been reported by two sources that Banks’ release was secured in early June, but no other sources have corroborated that news, and WWE has not confirmed the departure either. Banks and Naomi reportedly walked out of RAW at the May 16 show, due to frustration over creative. WWE then stripped them of the WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles, and announced that the two were suspended indefinitely. It was later revealed that they were suspended without pay. Their merchandise was also pulled for the duration of the suspension.
