Cole said the titles will be determined in a future tournament and that the actions of Banks & Naomi let down their millions of WWE fans and their fellow performers in the locker room.
Sasha Banks and Naomi were scheduled to participate in a Six-Pack Challenge this past Monday involving Becky Lynch, Asuka, Nikki A.S.H., and Doudrop but was changed during the show to a singles match between Asuka and Lynch.
Neither Banks nor Naomi has commented on the situation publicly.
It has been reported from multiple outlets that Naomi was scheduled to win the match and expected to face Bianca Belair at the Hell in a Cell show on Sunday, June 5th. Belair will now defend the Raw Women’s Championship against Asuka on the show.
