Sasha Banks defended her Smackdown Women’s Championship against Bianca Belair on Night One of WrestleMania 37, in its main event. It was a historic match as the two competitors gave it their all including the kitchen sink to win the match. Ultimately, it was Bianca Belair who emerged victorious in the title match and became the new Smackdown Women’s Champion in the process. The two also had a genuine moment where they shed tears in the ring. Sasha Banks also leaked a photo after cancelling a match.
‘The Boss’ Sasha Banks was set to face off against Bianca Belair at WWE SummerSlam for the Smackdown Women’s Championship. However, she never showed up and instead, Becky Lynch came out and beat Bianca Belair for the title in under 26 seconds. Sahsa Banks finally returned at WWE Extreme Rules and since then has been involved in the main event scene.
She became one-half of the WWE Women’s Tag team champions alongside Naomi. However, both of them walked out of Monday Night RAW back in May due to creative differences. It was said that Sasha Banks might have been released as well. Banks is also likely to come back now that Vince McMahon has retired.
While appearing on the latest episode of Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Sessions, Charlotte Flair noted that she can’t imagine not working with Sasha Banks and Naomi again.
“One, I haven’t been there because I left after Backlash, and I know what it’s like to jump on social media and read these headlines that are so far from the truth. So I don’t know what happened, but what I can say is I can’t imagine never wrestling Sasha again. That would be hard for me to compartmentalize because we started together. She is my Ricky Steamboat. My dad always tells her that. And then with Trin [Naomi], we just had a helluva match on SmackDown, and I’m like, ‘there’s unfinished business there because of circumstances, storylines, whatever.’ We just, ‘you two wrestle.’ For me, I can’t imagine not working with them, but in terms of what they’re going through, it’s not my place to speak on behalf of the company or them because I’m not there right now.”
