Mickie James Supports Naomi And Sasha Banks’ RAW Walkout

It looks like we won’t be seeing Mickie James back in WWE anytime soon.

On Monday’s RAW, we heard that Naomi and Sasha Banks had walked out of the TV tapings, citing creative issues with the company. Since the walkout occurred we have heard that the pair have little to know support backstage in the WWE. While some have come out in support of the tag champions, we haven’t seen many high profile names talk on the topic.

While speaking on Busted Open Radio, Mickie James shared her thoughts on Sasha Banks and Naomi walking out. James was supportive of them as she openly applauded their decision.

“Yeah, I actually applaud them standing in their convictions and how they felt. If they felt disrespected, or they felt unheard, or they felt any of those things. I mean, at the end of the day, we still are independent contractors. Like, that can be argued that they did show up to work that day. They saw whatever they were supposed to do and they had committed at least to half the day. So again, you are honestly only hearing only what they put out. Honestly, when I saw the statement, I was a bit in shock that WWE would even put out the statement. Because I couldn’t believe that Vince signed off on the statement.”

James of course had a rough exit to her WWE career when she was last released from the company. However, James would later appear at the Royal Rumble as IMPACT Women’s Champion. What do you make of James’ comments regarding the walkout? Let us know in the comments section and on our social media pages!
