Sasha Banks is currently unhappy with WWE and is trying to separate herself from the company. Fans were wondering how Sasha got so frustrated in the first place and how it reached this point.
On Wrestling Observer Radio Dave Meltzer talked about Banks’ situation in great detail. This was a slow and gradual process, but it reached a boiling point when WWE took the Women’s Tag Team Titles off of The Boss n Hug Connection.
“Sasha and Bayley I think in their minds they were like, ‘We’re gonna make these belts something.’ So the Sasha Banks thing — and a lot of people are gonna rip on her for this — but it reminds me so much whether it’s Bret or Ric Flair or you know any of the… I know so many people when it comes to the championships it’s like ‘oh it’s a prop and you take it too seriously,’ but that’s why it works.”
Dave noted that Sasha and Bayley were given the Women’s Tag Team Titles as the women’s division was dominated by Ronda Rousey as soon as she came in. Bayley and Sasha’s position in the company were less important, so they were given the titles as they were the biggest female superstars outside of the main event scene with Charlotte Flair, Becky Lynch, and Rousey.
“Whenever [Sasha Banks] wins a title they take it from her immediately, she never gets the long reign. Her and Bayley it was almost like when they created the tag team titles it was kinda like ‘we’ll give it to them because our top women are like Becky Lynch, Charlotte Flair, and Ronda. Really when Ronda came it was like Ronda’s division and then Becky got over and before then it was sorta like Sasha and Charlotte who were the stars and Charlotte stayed up there, but Sasha didn’t.”
A few years ago Sasha Banks faced Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch at WrestleMania in Dallas, where Snoop Dogg sang her theme song. Now she lost the WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles without getting to be a champion for long. This added to her frustration.
We will have to see if Sasha Banks decides to stay with the company or not.
