Following their Women’s Tag Title loss at WrestleMania 35, it is believed that Sasha Banks and Bayley did not take the decision well at all.

According to Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet, Banks and Bayley were laying on the floor of the locker room at Met Life Stadium on Sunday, “loudly making it known they were unhappy” about dropping the titles. They also made a similar scene at the WWE hotel also.

It’s been reported that Sasha Banks felt “blindsided” by the decision to switch the belts to The IIconics, and allegedly tried to quit the company.

She has been given time to think everything over before making a decision.
