Remember when the Internet was all worried about Sasha Banks after she pulled out of The Wendy Williams Show and was posting cryptically on social media about needing to find magic again?
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter (subscription required) is reporting she may have tried to quit WWE over WrestleMania 35 weekend, apparently because she was upset that WWE decided at the last minute to put the women’s tag team titles on The IIconics. Per the report, she’s been given some time to think about it and the hope is she will reconsider her position.
Fightful has jumped in to note this is much like the situation with The Revival from earlier this year, and that Bayley was also unhappy about the entire situation. For whatever it’s worth, Banks went after Alexa Bliss on Twitter during Monday Night Raw, a show she missed, when Bliss pinned Bayley in a singles match. Banks did not appear on the show.
It seems unlikely WWE would grant Banks a release, considering the landscape of the pro wrestling industry right now and word that AEW is closer than ever to a TV deal for a weekly show.
