Dave Meltzer of The Wrestling Observer  reported via the latest episode of “Wrestling Observer Radio” with Garrett Gonzales that their may have been more of a reasoning as to why Sasha Banks and Bayley were both upset at losing the WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles at WrestleMania than just the gold. The following is transcribed from WOR (transcription credit should go to @DominicDeAngelo of WrestleZone):

Meltzer: “So the Bayley thing, that had to do with the Sasha Banks/Bayley stuff being very unhappy was not only that they were losing the championship that they found on Sunday, but they were told that they were splitting up the team. Again, put it this way: I don’t know how this is going to relate to Sasha Banks and no one even knows what’s going on with Sasha Banks because she was not booked for TV this week because she has been given a couple weeks to (she is booked for the PPV, but whether she’ll be there or not we don’t know), but she was given a couple weeks to reconsider when she tried to quit privately.

“The thing is that I don’t know if it’s going to help her, but I think it was abundantly clear that it’s not going to help Bayley, this splitting of the team.”

Gonzales: “She was not well received tonight.”

Meltzer: “And I heard it was worse live than it came off on TV. I heard she was booed really bad. That could be just that one crowd, because the same crowd cheered her the night before, so I don’t even get it, honestly.

“The way it was explained to me was that the fans were excited about Becky Lynch against Ember Moon and when Bayley came out and interrupted it, and they blame Bayley for interrupting their Becky Lynch/Ember Moon possible match that they wanted to see that was unique so that’s how it was explained.”
