Fans posted to their Twitter accounts stating the “Then. Now. Forever.” graphic that played before Friday night’s SmackDown on FOX, had Sasha Banks and Naomi removed. It appears where Banks was shown, now has Cody Rhodes in that spot, and where Naomi was now has Ronda Rousey showing.
Friday night, WWE removed both Banks and Naomi from WWEShop.com. Several searches for their merchandise came up with no hits and a message of nothing found. WWE has also removed each Banks’ and Naomi’s Facebook pages from the company. After attempts were made using the search method, the accounts for Banks and Naomi could not be found.
Michael Cole stated on Friday night’s WWE SmackDown that Banks and Naomi have been suspended indefinitely, with the Women’s Tag Team Titles vacated and a tournament to be held in the near future to determine new champions.
Banks and Naomi walked out of last Monday’s Raw over “creative differences” causing the main event having to be changed and re-written.
