The two also cannot earn revenue from merchandise sales as their items were pulled online.

The indefinite WWE suspensions of both Sasha Banks and Naomi are without pay, according to Dave Meltzer in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter.

Because merchandise for both women were also removed from WWE's online store, they also get no revenue from that either. Meltzer noted that both had merchandise available at live shows this past weekend because it was already printed ahead of time.

It's unknown if their contracts are also frozen as a result, but Meltzer noted WWE has the right to do that. Naomi was in negotiations on a new contract as her current deal was believed to expire in the next few months while it's unknown when Banks' deal is up.

WWE announced last Friday on SmackDown that the now-former WWE Women's Tag Team Champions had been suspended and that a tournament for the vacant titles would be held at some point.

The two walked out of the Monday, May 16th Raw just prior to the show going on the air over a creative dispute.
