Sasha walked out of Raw today, unhappy with the planned main event

SRS claims this is WWE's official statement

https://www.reddit.com/r/SquaredCircle/comments/urcfxr/wwes_statement_on_sasha_banks_and_naomi/

Anyone who tells Vince his booking sucks is alright in my book. Raw gets re-written at the last minute all the time anyway, so fuck him.

Deanjam

WWE statement. Behind the scenes drama is the only drama in WWE that's interesting.


Mobius

Seems WWE may have just made up the bit about them not wanting to work with people or claiming they're unsafe workers in an attempt to smear them. Sounds like shit anyway they've all worked together before.

Shocking I know

Psybro

I thought they were being accused of not wanting to work with Scots.  Damn Scots, they ruined wrestling!

The statement is giving me Goldberg refusing to follow the script vibes.

just sounds like creative don't work for Sasha, brotha

I'm kind of enjoying the fallout from this Sasha/Naomi situation today. It just seems to keep spiralling and sucking everyone into its orbit.

Matt Cardona trying to make it about him and Punk calling him out, plus calling out hack journalist Ryan Satin. Carmella defending Corey Graves saying he was just the messenger (apparently he buried Sasha and Naomi on commentary during Raw). These conflicting reports of WWE saying Sasha and Naomi refused to work with two women for being unsafe and the dirt-sheets saying that's bullshit.

The story has even been picked up by the big entertainment websites.

Both Sasha and Naomi should be legitimately furious about never getting the push their popularity deserves, but walking out over those daft belts is absolutely hilarious

They must have told Sasha to do something she found completely unreasonable, like get vaccinated.

petril

it's like a shite Channel 5 version of Montreal, isn't it?

Psybro

Some people are so keen to bang on about Sasha's crossover appeal, this seems a good opportunity to see it tested.

My guess is that she'd do well below Batista but somewhat ahead of Warrior.

gmoney

No idea what her crossover appeal is, but I do know that she was incredible in NXT and they weren't able to capitalise on it on the main roster, despite flashes. She's better than almost all of the AEW woman's roster though, would love to see her over there...

Ja'moke

It's funny to me that Sasha's transition into other entertainment came because the Mandalorian director saw her on Hot Ones... and not anything from WWE.

And WWE barely even promoted her being on The Mandolorian, which, despite how small her role might have been, is one of the biggest shows out there. And now she's turning up on various other shows, I saw she's on Kevin Hart's chat show thing.

Deanjam

It's interesting that she seems to have enough name value to get invited onto these kind of shows, in a way that, for instance, Mustafa Ali didn't. She could spill a few uncomfortable truths about WWE if they start fucking with her. I certainly hope she does. Burn it all down!

Welcome to AEW Johnny ... er, Gargano?


Mobius

I guess they posted what we all thought at the time too. Thought he looked pretty shaky in that match.

KOR Vs Fenix was great and Takeshita is fucking awesome. Wardlow took those hits like a champ too

Gurke and Hare

The bloke who did the bits with The Miz that I always used to skip past on WWE is a bit of an underwhelming joker. Happy to see Maki though.

Quote from: Mobius on May 19, 2022, 07:37:37 AMKOR Vs Fenix was great and Takeshita is fucking awesome.

Yeah, those were two great matches, Takeshita's a star.

kitsofan34

Is Wheeler Yuta injured or something? Seems like an oversight excluding him from the PPV match.

Gurke and Hare

He's on excursion in Japan doing the Best of the Super Juniors tournament that lasts about a month.

Ja'moke

Not as top to bottom good as last week's Dynamite, but still overall enjoyable. Hangman vs Takeshita and Fenix vs KOR were both fantastic. MJF is still an amazing piece of shit (I really hope he doesn't leave for WWE). And the Jokers were fine choices if they were destined to lose... and let's be honest, the Jokers in the Casino Battle Royals are usually on that mid-card level.

The bad... I thought that Jericho/Regal segment went way too long, and, as much as I love him, Regal's promo was shit. Jericho had all these lines about Regal's addictions and what have you, and Regal responds with, "I stuck your toothbrush up my arse." I get the intention was probably for him to undermine Jericho and not play into his games, but it came across lame.

Rampage spoiler on potential injury -
Spoiler alert
Bryan got his leg trapped between the ramp and the ring and was apparently stuck in there for 10 minutes with people trying to help him out. He eventually got out and limped to the back unassisted.

Stephanie taking off from WWE to 'focus on my family' which is a politics euphemism for "oh shit, a big scandal is coming". Might be nothing in it of course, may be related to Hunters health, but I'm hoping that Vince has been filmed fucking a pig.


Ja'moke

My first thought upon seeing that was that Triple H's health situation isn't good. Hope that's not the case, though.

He's very, very good. Sadly, and I'm sure this is not an original observation, I can't see his name without thinking "Take a shit".

You've ruined him forever.

For me it's "take shit-ah", in a Mark E. Smith style.

Gurke and Hare

Very good video montage for Hookhausen/Tony Nese. Very bad segment with Sammy etc, only they've dragged Frankie Kazarian into the feud and poured shit on him too.

Gurke and Hare

The wrestling was all pretty good at worst, brilliant at best though.

Deanjam

WWE had Michael Cole bury Sasha & Naomi again on air. Said they let millions of fans down, and disappointed the locker room. Indefinitely suspended and stripped of the worthless tag belts. New champions to be determined in a tournament. They only have 2 teams left by the way.

Deanjam

They've also removed all their merch from WWE shop.
