Do you think Sasha Banks and Naomi expected they would be suspended when they walked out?

I think they had to know it was a possibility given the action that they were taking.  Whenever you go against Vince McMahon, you know the risk you are taking.  They knew and they took it anyway.

If you were Sasha, would you leave wrestling and go into acting full time?

I can’t speak for her but honestly, if I were her, yes I would.  WWE made it pretty clear who the women at the top of the division are.  They made it clear that the tag champs were expendable to those women.  If I were Sasha, and had accomplished all that I have in wrestling, yes I would try acting full time.  Everything I have seen her in she has been great.

I saw a lot of people calling out Sasha for going home again.  But the way I see it, it wasn’t just her.  Naomi, who I have never heard anyone say is a “diva”, went to.  Why aren’t more people pointing that out?

I can only speak for this site but I can tell you Mike Johnson and I discussed that very point on our show last Wednesday.  To me, Naomi seeing things the same way as Sasha, tells me it’s about more than just Sasha. When the boss makes it clear he thinks you are worth less than you believe you are worth, you have a decision to make.  I respect people who believe in themselves.

Do you think Stephanie McMahon took her leave of absence due to the booking of the women or the bad booking overall?

No, I don’t think that has anything to do with her leaving.  She has been a party to the WWE booking her whole adult life.  That isn’t the reason.

If not, why do you think she left her own company?

I have heard a lot of stories and frankly, until we can confirm them, I am not going to speculate.  I don’t think it’s responsible or fair to be quite frank.  All I will say is I do believe there is a lot more to it than we know right now.
