Some fans watching WWE SmackDown or NXT Level Up last night may have noticed that Sasha Banks and Naomi are no longer featured in the signature intro that kicks off the show.
As seen below, Banks was replaced by Cody Rhodes in the signature opening. During the open for NXT Level Up, Banks was replaced by Rhea Ripley. Naomi was also briefly shown in the signature opening prior to this week and she has also been replaced.
All of this can be undone if both sides work things out but right now, it doesn’t look like that’s in consideration. As noted earlier, Naomi removed “WWE Superstar” references from her Twitter and Instagram bios. Banks seems to be doing well as she was seen with Snoop Dogg’s son Calvin in Minneapolis on Friday and they were heading to the house of the late Prince.
Last night on SmackDown, WWE announced that Banks and Naomi are indefinitely suspended and a tournament will be held to crown new Women’s Tag Team Champions.
