The voice of RAW has his say.
Jimmy Smith was a part of the announce team on this Monday’s RAW, where the team had to do the difficult job of letting the fans at home know what was going on regarding the main event of RAW. Following Naomi and Sasha Banks walking out on the taping, the show was thrown into chaos and the main event needed to be produced in a hurry.
Smith talked about the situation on his Unlocking the Cage podcast. Smith was just as shocked as anyone when the news came through his headset. Jimmy gave his opinion on what he thinks will come next for Sasha and Naomi, and he is not sure how they will recover.
“So where does that leave them? It’s hard when something like this becomes so public… I don’t know Vince McMahon personally. I’m in meetings with him every week, but I don’t know the man personally. I know what you know, which is, ‘Get the events that we promised the fans then we will deal with anything else no matter how difficult, no matter how dramatic the problem is… Get the main event that we promised out there for the people.’
“That didn’t happen last night. So when you look at it that way, how do Sasha Banks and Naomi come back from this? I don’t know because this is not — If this were inside baseball, If the WWE had never released a statement about this, I would not be talking about it right now. Wouldn’t be a public issue. You know, like, that’s behind the scenes. I generally don’t talk about behind-the-scenes stuff. I don’t give away angles, any of that. This is now incredibly public in an almost unprecedented way.”Jimmy Smith on Unlocking The Cage
Time will tell if we will see Naomi and Sasha on WWE again. This isn’t the first time Sasha has walked out and judging by WWE’s statement, it could be the end of the line for both stars in the company.
Do you see anyway Naomi and Banks can recover from this walkout? Let us know in the comments and on our social media pages.
