WWE has responded after Sasha Banks and Naomi "walked out" of 'Monday Night Raw'.

The company has issued a statement following some behind the scenes controversy on Monday (16.05.22)

which saw the Women's Tag Team Champions legitimately leave the building during filming for the show, which reports suggesting the pair had issues with the creative direction for the storyline.

'The Mandalorian' star Sasha and her tag partner Naomi had been announced to be part of a planned 'Six Pack Challenge' headlining the show,

but WWE was forced to change plans and went with a singles match between Becky Lynch and Asuka.

In a statement, WWE said: "When Sasha Banks and Naomi arrived at the arena this afternoon, they were informed of their participation in the main event of tonight’s Monday Night Raw.

"During the broadcast, they walked into WWE Head of Talent Relations John Laurinaitis’ office with their suitcases in hand, placed their tag team championship belts on his desk and walked out.

"Monday Night Raw is a scripted live TV show, whose characters are expected to perform the requirements of their contract.
