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.
She finally debuted at Wrestle Kingdom 17 last week as Mercedes Mone, taking out KAIRI in the process.
While speaking to DJ Whoo Kid’s Shade45 show, Saraya revealed that she texted Mercedes Mone right after her NJPW debut. Saraya is also is not aware if Tony Khan is interested in bringing Mercedes over to AEW, considering the good relations between his company and NJPW.
“I don’t know. I wish I knew that. Even Meech, my manager, is constantly asking, and I’m like, ‘I have no idea’ I asked Tony Khan like, ‘what’s the deal?’ I would love to (face her) in AEW because I’m there. Tony has a good relationship with New Japan and he loves New Japan. Sasha, I texted her the other day just to be like, ‘congratulations.’ She said that she was happy. I’m not starting any rumors with her.”
