Ariane Andrew and Naomi have worked together during Andrew’s time in WWE as The Funkadactyls. In an interview with SEScoops’ Steve Fall, Andrew feels Naomi would not have walked out unless she got manipulated.

She said, “I feel like she [Naomi] wouldn’t do this unless she had someone manipulating and telling her how to do this. Let’s best believe if I was here, coming as a Funkadactyl we wouldn’t have this happening at all.”

Further, Ariane Andrew added, “Sasha is Sasha. You have Snoop Dogg as your cousin. You’re a top athlete, you can do whatever the f**k you wanna do. She can f***ing back it up in the ring but if you have the top agent, you have a top celebrity backing you up, a thousand percent you’re gonna have the extra boost. But someone like Naomi, where’s your extra boost?”

Following this shocking incident, WWE also released an official statement.
