One of pro wrestling and the WWE’s biggest star in Sasha Banks walked out of the company prior to the May 16 episode of WWE RAW due to frustration over creative, revealing that she and Naomi did not feel respected as a team and that they even felt unsafe working with specific WWE Superstars inside of the squared circle. Sasha Banks and Naomi were then stripped of the WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles and their profiles were even removed from the official WWE roster page and they were also removed from WWE’s TV intro videos. Banks and Naomi would even remove the WWE from their Instagram profiles and Naomi would also remove WWE from her Twitter bio.
Triple H took over the WWE’s creative several months back and since then a lot of significant changes have happened such as several former WWE Stars being brought back, but there were also rumblings of a potential return for Sasha Banks. Dave Meltzer revealed on a recent edition of the Wrestling Observer Radio Program that WWE was in contract talks with Sasha Banks and last he heard there were some money issues, but that was a long time ago, so he is unsure where things currently stand.
Last Saturday night’s WWE Survivor Series: WarGames Premium Live Event took place in Boston, which is the hometown of Sasha Banks and fans inside TD Garden were apparently under the impression that Banks would be making her return as the crowd even chanted “We Want Sasha” during the WWE SmackDown Women’s Title Match between WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey and Shotzi, but the chants died down. Bryan Alvarez took to his Twitter and revealed that the crowd mics were turned off, but one source in the arena noted that it was just a short chant that was drowned out by other fans.
There’s no word yet on what the future holds for Sasha Banks in the WWE and if contract talks will be picking up again sometime soon, but updates will be provided once it has been made available.
