@WrestleOps They should never be allowed back. Once you choose to walk out that is your last exit out that door.

@WrestleOps WWE went almost a whole year not doing much with the women tag division. Which proves the point of Sasha and Naomi. They are now just focusing on them. Just when the tag division looks bright, Ronda comes back.
@WrestleOps Wild. I remember people saying it was a giant loss for WWE to lose Sasha, yet, as always, WWE just carries on and doesn’t miss a beat.
