WWE Superstars Sasha Banks and Naomi have been “suspended indefinitely” and stripped of their tag team title after walking out of ‘Monday Night Raw’ earlier this week … the company just announced during Friday Night Smackdown.
Ringside announcer Michael Cole dropped the bombshell during the telecast … saying the now-former women’s tag team champions won’t be wrestling until further notice while they serve the suspension.
In addition to the suspension, Cole stated there will be a future tournament to crown new WWE women’s tag team champions.

As we previously reported, Sasha and Naomi were slated to take part in a six-pack challenge to determine the number one contender for Bianca Belair, the women’s champ.
However, Banks, a former women’s champ herself, reportedly got frustrated with Vince McMahon and management’s vision for the show … resulting in her and Naomi blowing off the show and leaving the arena.
Wrestling outlets reported — and Cole confirmed — Sasha met with Vince prior to the start of the show, but McMahon refused to change the show’s script, which caused Sasha and Naomi to skip out on their match.
