Sasha Banks has been absent from the WWE since WrestleMania 35 when she and Bayley lost the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship to the IIconics. Since then, the company’s commentary teams have mentioned the Boss, but have yet to give the fans any clue as to what’s going on behind the scenes.
It’s been stated multiple times through many sources that both Banks and Bayley were both upset and shocked by the results of their title match at WrestleMania, believing up to the day that they were going to successfully defend their belts and continue to defend them across Raw, SmackDown Live, and NXT.
Last week it was revealed that the former Raw Women’s Champion had been given a few weeks to figure out what she wanted to do. According to Dave Meltzer, though, she’s made up her mind. Meltzer revealed on Wrestling Observer Radio that she plans on sitting out the rest of her contract.
Sasha Banks, the situation is unchanged. They’re right now at a stalemate and the word – of course, you know how this goes – but the word is that if she wants to sit out the rest of her contract she can sit out the rest of her contract. Of course, you know what that means. She’s going to be sitting out forever because they’re going to add time for her not working.
If Banks has indeed decided to sit out as Neville did a few years ago, it could be a while before we see her appear in any promotion. Depending on how much time is left on her deal, it could be years.
