(STINGER: WWE) The WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions Sasha Banks and Naomi walked out on last night’s RAW in an apparent backstage dispute over booking plans. Last night’s show opened up promoting a “6 Pack Challenge” to decide the #1 contender for the Raw Women’s Championship…with Banks, Naomi, Becky Lynch, Asuka, Nikki A.S.H., and Doudrop. But less than an hour into the show, that match was changed during a backstage segment where Lynch said Banks and Naomi had left the building. Reports soon surfaced that this had actually happened…and WWE released a statement that stated that Banks and Naomi went into John Laurinaitis’ office during the broadcast, put their title belts on his desk, and walked out…claiming they were ”uncomfortable in the ring with two of their opponents”. Banks and Naomi were repeatedly referred to as “unprofessional” during the remainder of RAW. The main event saw Asuka beat Becky Lynch in a one-on-one match. She will challenge Bianca Belair for the Raw Women’s Championship at Hell In A Cell. Also now set for that event, Cody Rhodes will face Seth Rollins inside Hell In A Cell. Bobby Lashley beat Omos in a steel cage match. Omos threw Lashley through a panel of the cage and Lashley was able to walk away with the win. Veer Mahaan got a submission win over Mustafa Ali. The Miz was once again the special guest referee. And United States Champion Theory was also there to cause trouble for Ali. A post-match attack was interrupted by Rey & Dominik Mysterio’s return to RAW. RAW Tag Team Champion Riddle beat SmackDown Tag Champ Jimmy Uso. AJ Styles & Finn Balor - with Liv Morgan in their corner - beat Los Lotharios. Alexa Bliss beat Sonya Deville. The DNA test on Ezekiel was inconclusive. Ezekiel later got a win over Chad Gable. Tonight’s NXT has Santos Escobar vs. Tony D’Angelo. Plus, the Creed Brothers vs. the Viking Raiders…and North American Champ Cameron Grimes & Solo Sikoa team up against Carmelo Hayes & Trick Williams. (STINGER: AEW) The Ring of Honor Pure Championship is on the line on tonight’s Dark. Wheeler Yuta defends against the former champion Josh Woods. Also tonight, The Factory’s QT Marshall, Aaron Solo, Blake Li, Brick Aldridge & Nick Comoroto vs. New Japan’s Alex Coghlin, Clark Connors, Karl Fredericks, Kevin Knight & Yuya Uemura Mercedes Martinez is still the ROH Women’s Champion. She successfully defended the title against Trish Adora on last night’s Dark: Elevation.

A special welcome to those of you listening on TheWrestlingRevolution.com. If you want to bring our updates to your website...email us: desk@justprowrestlingnews.com. (STINGER: NJPW) Kota Ibushi is sounding like someone who has wrestled his last match in New Japan. Depending on how you translate it, Ibushi replied to a fan on Twitter by writing he’s either “now” fired” or expects he will be fired…for publicly airing his grievances with the New Japan office along with text messages he exchanged with Kikuchi, who Ibushi describes as a matchmaker. In one of those texts, Kikuchi threatened to end Ibushi’s contract. Ibushi wrote he has only told 1/1000th of the story. And if he said too much he would be “executed in the dark”. He added, “I don't have any friends because they think I'm an idiot.” He later replied to a fan’s tweet by saying that if he returns to wrestling, “it will be somewhere else.” He’s been out of action since he was injured during the G1 Climax final last summer. (STINGER: AEW) MJF will face Wardlow at Double or Nothing…on a few conditions. Wardlow must take 10 lashes from MJF on next week’s Dynamite. Wardlow must face Shawn Spears inside a steel cage with MJF as the special guest referee. Plus, if Wardlow loses at Double or Nothing, he can never sign an AEW contract. HookHausen is a reality. Hook & Danhausen will team up on the Double or Nothing “Buy In” pre-show…against Tony Nese & Mark Sterling. Danhausen’s AEW in-ring debut last night was…very brief.

Three Owen Hart Foundation Tournament matches went down last night. Toni Storm beat Jamie Hayter. Jeff Hardy cradled Darby Allin for a pinfall win. And Adam Cole used the Sharpshooter to get a submission win over Dax Harwood. Ricky Starks is still the FTW Champion. He beat Jungle Boy after some ringside involvement by Swerve Strickland backfired. Also on the show, The Blackpool Combat Club joined forces with Eddie Kingston, Santana & Ortiz to beat up on the Jericho Appreciation Society. This Friday’s Rampage will once again start early - at 5:30 PM Eastern. Tony Khan says there will be another Grand Slam special from Arthur Ashe Stadium “in a few months”.

Cameron Grimes defending the North American Title against Carmelo Hayes is already announced for the show.

This update is brought to you by IndyWrestling.us. (STINGER: NJPW) Bullet Club dominated New Japan’s Wrestling Dontaku show on Sunday…adding championships and a new member! We’re going to run through this chronologically. First, Bullet Club’s Bad Luck Fale & Chase Owens are the new IWGP Tag Team Champions. They pinned Hirooki Goto to win a 3-way over Goto & YOSHI-HASHI…and the former champs Great-O-Khan & Jeff Cobb. In the following match, Tama Tonga beat EVIL to win the NEVER Openweight Title. But right after the 3-count, Karl Anderson & Doc Gallows made a surprise appearance to beat up Tama Tonga, Tanga Loa, and Jado. Next, Bullet Club’s Taiji Ishimori beat El Desperado to win the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Title. The semi-main event was up next: Hiroshi Tanahashi beat Tomohiro Ishii to win the vacant IWGP United States Championship. Chase Owens confronted Tanahashi after the match, setting him up for a blindside attack by a masked man - who revealed himself to be Juice Robinson, who is now part of Bullet Club. Robinson had said he would be leaving New Japan when his contract expired at the end of April. Juice is a LIAR!. Finally came the main event. Kazuchika Okada beat Tetsuya Naito to retain the IWGP World Heavyweight Championship. But just when it appeared the show-ending celebration was over, Jay White showed up - back in Japan for the first time in about a year. White and the rest of the refreshed Bullet Club lineup laid out Okada to close the show. Okada is now set to defend against White at Dominion on June 12th. Also announced for Dominion…Anderson will challenge Tama Tonga for the NEVER Title…and Owens & Fale will defend the tag titles against Cobb & Great-O-Khan. Shingo Takagi will defend the KOPW 2022 trophy against Taichi at Dominion. Taichi pinned Takagi with a Gedo Clutch to win a 6-man tag at Wrestling Dontaku. Other results from that show, Ryusuke Taguchi & Master Wato beat DOUKI & Yoshinobu Kanemaru to hold onto their junior tag titles. Hiromu Takahashi beat YOH. And Tanga Loa beat Yujiro Takahashi. Tokyo Sports reports Tetsuya Naito will undergo a second surgery to address double vision in his right eye. The first procedure was back in 2019 and Naito missed a few weeks of action.
