Since then, many questions have been raised against them and even for them as well. However, many fans believe that this walkout might be kayfabe. But is it so? 

Initially, The Main Event would have seen Naomi pin Sasha Banks to win the match and receive the title shot. After that, banks and Naomi would have featured in several segments building to them facing off in the game. Post main event, the partners would have celebrated Naomi’s victory. 

According to WWE’s statement,

They claimed they weren’t respected enough as tag team champions. And even though they had eight hours to rehearse and construct their match, they claimed they were uncomfortable in the ring with two of their opponents even though they’d had matches with those individuals in the past with no consequence.

Many non-WWE wrestlers have also supported their action as there have been several such cases in the recent past due to creative disputes. Which can state that this might not be a Kayfabe. 

WWE has suspended Sasha Banks and Naomi after the duo walked out of Monday Night RAW. Michael Cole made the announcement live on SmackDown. They have also been vacated from their championship titles. 

However, one part of the story suggests that this might be a kayfabe as WWE might be planning to do something big, just like when Dolph Ziggler relinquished his title and walked out to make a more significant return during Royal Rumble 2018. 

So to conclude, we can say that this may be a kayfabe or might not be a kayfabe. So we will have to wait and watch whether they will return to something big or if this is the end of the road for them.
