Sasha Banks returned to WWE this week on RAW, and quickly made a much-anticipated heel turn by attacking Natalya. She went on to decimate Becky Lynch, and made her presence felt in front of a sold-out crowd in Toronto.
During the vicious beatdown, Sasha Banks accidentally hit Becky Lynch with a devastating chair-shot, right to the back of her head. Becky Lynch flinched after that move, and the shot which was meant for her back looked to cause some serious damage to the Lasskicker.
The RAW Women’s Champion was feared to have a concussion after the blow, but seems to be fine. She tweeted “Let the Games Begin”, which means that a full-blown Sasha-Lynch rivalry is finally turning into reality.
Shots to the head with a Steel Chair are a big no-no in WWE, following several concussion reports and injuries due to the move in the past. WWE has banned several moves ever since going PG, and chair shots to the head are one of them.
Sasha Banks has previously come under the radar for delivering the move which eventually ended Paige‘s in-ring career. She returned to a wrestling ring after four months, and her botch could’ve been due to ring-rust.
During her time away from WWE, Banks was rumored to join different promotions after freezing out her contract similar to Neville a.k.a PAC. However, she eventually made the much-awaited return and turned heel for the first time in her main roster career.
Sasha Banks and Becky Lynch will probably collide at next month’s Clash of Champions pay-per-view, where every title on the main roster will be defended. Banks has won the RAW Women’s Championship four times in her career, but has never successfully defended the title.
It remains to be seen if the other two horsewomen (Bayley and Charlotte Flair) cross paths on SmackDown Live tonight.
