Ziggler has been absent from television since losing the NXT Championship to Bronn Breakker on the post-WrestleMania edition of RAW. His tag team part Robert Roode is in a similar situation and recently made his return in a WWE house show.
Backstage reports reveal that Banks and Naomi have major heat on them. But Ziggler is one of the few superstars who have showered their support for the former Women’s Tag Team Champions.
Details on Banks’ and Naomi’s indefinite suspension
Sasha Banks and Naomi walked out of RAW due to their displeasure with WWE creative. They felt that they weren’t respected enough even after getting over as the Women’s Tag Team Champions. They also gave up their championship titles to WWE Head of Talent Relations, John Laurinaitis.
WWE later released a statement on their website claiming that Banks and Naomi let the fans down. They even stripped the women of their championships, and a new tournament will be held to determine new tag team champions.
