Sasha Banks and Bayley teamed up on this week’s WWE Raw in a tag team match. Ronda Rousey and Natalya were their opponents in this main event aired from the Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Despite Ronda’s efforts, the Boss n Hug Connection was able to put away her team via the Bank Statement submission.
It was indeed a big win for Sasha Banks and Bayley on WWE Raw. For the first time in the WWE, Ronda Rousey ended up in a losing side of a match after entering the WWE since last year’s Royal Rumble. It gave The Boss needed momentums for the upcoming title match on this Sunday night. Plus, there’s an additional reason to remember the bygone match courtesy of a wardrobe malfunction.
Watch Video: Sasha Banks Wardrobe Malfunction On WWE Raw
In the closing sequences of the match on WWE Raw, the screen went black on the USA Network. Natalya was in firm control at that point and went for the Sharpshooter. Before we can understand anything, Sasha Banks came back and locked in her submission to get the win. Apparently, Sasha’s wardrobe malfunction is the reason behind the screen going black.
WrestlingInc.com reported that viewers on the USA Network saw the screen go black for about two seconds. Trunks of Sasha Banks came down exposing her back portion at that point. WWE TV gets PG ratings which is why they had to turn the screen black for a moment. However, the actions never continued and some of the fans could barely understand anything.
Now, this scene was limited to the USA Network spectators only. Other cable providers did turn the screen black and those viewers got to see the unfamiliar segment from current WWE programming. However, it was not intentional from the show hosts unlike the earlier segments from last week featuring Alexa Bliss or Mandy Rose.
Reports suggested that we are going to get more of these A-rated scenes, going forward. So there were rumors whether this wardrobe malfunction was intentional or not. But doing something like that in an intense main event would be something much unlikely from today’s genre of women’s wrestling. So we eliminate any kind of conspiracy theories.
Women suffering a wardrobe malfunction in the WWE is not something new. We have seen plenty of them during the Attitude or Ruthless Aggression Era. The PG Era also saw stars like Lana, Charlotte Flair, Natalya or Mickie James suffering from a wardrobe malfunction.
