Sasha Banks & Chris Jericho Bombshell Leaks

Former WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion Sasha Banks could be moving to AEW in the near future. Banks has been away from WWE for a few months now. Banks and Naomi had allegedly walked out of Monday Night RAW few months back due to creative differences. There have been various sides to the story already reported, including that the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions confronted then the WWE Chairman Vince McMahon over their issue. Reports also emerged that she could signing with NJPW.



PWInsider dropped a bombshell story on Banks’ future in wrestling, reporting that The Boss would be appearing at NJPW’s Wrestle Kingdom 17 on January 4. When asked for comment regarding whether or not she would be appearing at the NJPW January 4th show, Wrestle Kingdom 17 there was a conspicuous silence. According to the report, typically if rumors are false they are quickly rebuffed by their NJPW however with this particular question, they would not confirm nor deny. Whatever be the case, she is seemingly done with WWE. It has now come to light that ‘The Boss’ might earn more than what Jericho earned in NJPW.

Sasha Banks could earn more than Chris Jericho

While speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer touched upon the recent report about Sasha Banks, and he provided insight into it. In fact, Meltzer noted that Sasha Banks could end up making more money than Chris Jericho did in NJPW:

“Voices of Wrestling said that it was a per-appearance deal at the highest price that Bushiroad has ever paid anyone, and they said it was more than Chris Jericho. Which to me sounds… I don’t know.

Chris Jericho made $100,000 a shot when he was working for New Japan, and, man, $100,000 a shot, she’s gonna have to … with Chris Jericho he was actually underpaid because of how much revenue he drove between New Japan World and ticket sales at the different shows and things like that. But I don’t see her driving that revenue, but I guess we’ll find out.

The Tokyo Dome may be one thing, but for other shows, and a lot of them in the United States, I don’t see where she’s gonna drive $100,000 of extra revenue.

On a per-appearance basis, obviously tons more than she would have made in WWE, but in total, they’re not gonna book her on enough shows to where she would make in the long run what she would make in WWE. It’s only a few shows, she has plenty of time to do other projects, perhaps work for AEW.”
