WWE reportedly plans on attempting to reconcile with absent stars Sasha Banks and Naomi following Vince McMahon's retirement as company CEO and Chairman.

This is per Dave Meltzer. Speaking on the Sports Illustrated Media podcast, he stated that while things are "kind of up in the air" regarding the suspended former Women's Tag Team Champions and nothing is certain at the moment, there was at least talk of WWE reaching out - particularly with Vince out of the picture.

McMahon, 76, confirmed he was retiring from his long-held position last Friday (22 July). The former executive is currently embroiled in a "hush money" scandal purporting he paid upwards of $12 million to suppress cases of alleged sexual misconduct.

Banks and Naomi have been away from WWE since May, having walked out of a Raw episode, leaving their Women's Tag Team Titles on then-Head of Talent Relations John Laurinaitis' desk. Like McMahon, Laurinaitis is now believed to be gone from the company following his implication in the aforementioned scandal.

WWE handed Banks and Naomi indefinite suspensions and stripped them of their belts in the days following their walkout. Both women's status with the promotion has been up in the air since then.
