Sasha Banks was last seen on WWE TV when she wrestled at WrestleMania back in April. Following the match, the former Women’s Champion reportedly had a number of altercations backstage in the arena before she was sent on vacation by WWE officials.
Reports suggest that both Banks and Bayley were not pleased about the fact that their Women’s Tag Team Championships were taken away at WrestleMania when The IIconics won their fatal-four way match. The Boss ‘n’ Hug connection worked hard to establish the titles on the main roster and were able to make them a reality because they put in the hard work convincing officials backstage.
While Bayley has since returned to WWE TV and has been moved over to the SmackDown Live roster and has now been given a place in the Money in the Bank ladder match, Sasha Banks hasn’t followed the same path. The Boss has instead stayed away from WWE and has continued to update cryptic status messages online which has led many fans to believe that she doesn’t want to return to WWE.
Mike Johnson of PWInsider Elite Audio recently revealed that Banks is still “listed internally” to be part of WWE’s upcoming European Tour as one of the company’s list of talents who are set to be travelling to Europe, but he did state that it would all become clear if The Boss showed up tonight on SmackDown Live.
“I was told that she was still listed internally for the European tour. I don’t know if she’s going, but as of Thursday of last week she was still listed on the European tour internally as on the list of talents who are going. So we will see if she pops up on SmackDown tonight,” he said via Ringsidenews.
Banks hasn’t been moved over to SmackDown Live as part of the Superstar Shake-up so an appearance on tonight’s show would definitely be a strange one.
