I guess they weren’t happy. There are a lot of people in WWE and it can be difficult to keep track of all of them. At times WWE has to go out of its way to make its wrestlers happy, but that can be easier said than done. On occasion, the wrestlers will not exactly be happy, and that was the case this weeks as well, with two wrestlers being so unhappy that they were not having what WWE was going to do.
WWE announced a Six Pack Challenge for this week’s Monday Night Raw, with the winner getting a future Raw Women’s Title match. The match was set to include Asuka, Becky Lynch, Naomi, Sasha Banks, Doudrop and Nikki Ash. However, less than an hour into the show, the match was changed, with Becky Lynch announcing that Naomi and Banks walked out of the show and the match was changed to Lynch vs. Asuka.
According to PWInsider.com, Banks walked out of the creative direction of the match, with Naomi leaving with her. In addition, an update to the report says that Naomi was planned to win the match. There is no word on what this means for either woman or their Women’s Tag Team Titles. The two have held the titles since WrestleMania 38 and defended them against Natalya and Tamina last week on SmackDown.
Who will earn a shot at the #WWERaw Women's Title.

Opinion: I’m not sure what is going on here but it doesn’t sound good. Banks has a bit of a reputation for not being thrilled with the way things are going for her in WWE and it seems that might be the case here. I don’t know what else was planned during the match, but something didn’t sit right with Banks and now this could get interesting. Hopefully they can work things out, as Banks is too talented to be sitting on the sidelines.
What do you think of the situation? What does it mean for the titles? Let us know in the comments below.
