Sasha Banks recently made an appearance at the Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo. She had fan interaction and posed for photos as well. She also slammed the security to defend a fan. Previously, on July 13th, it was announced that ‘The Boss’ will be convention under her real name of Mercedes Varnado. Though the announcement did list “Sasha Banks” as one of her roles, it made no mention of WWE.
A report from Fightful Select revealed that multiple wrestling conventions have reached out to The Boss, but she’s stated that she won’t be taking any wrestling-related bookings until January of 2023. In a further update, Fightful Select reported that Varnado’s asking price for the convention was $30,000, which was said to be “exactly as expected” based on demand for the star as she left on her own terms, hasn’t been appearing on the convention scene regularly, and has a passionate fan base to support her.
Fan pokes fun at Sasha Banks
During the appearance at the convention a fan ribbed Banks with giant $30K bill referencing her booking fee. Here it is below:

It should also be noted that the $30,000 convention booking fee is not the same price she’d charge to wrestle a match. That information is unknown at this time.
Sasha Banks and Naomi had walked out of Monday Night RAW due to creative differences. There have been various sides to the story already reported, including that the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions confronted WWE Chairman Vince McMahon over their issue.
WWE left that part out of their official narrative, but Banks and Naomi did have words with the boss. In the official statement from the company, it was noted that Sasha Banks and Naomi dropped their tag titles on the desk of John Laurinaitis and left the building. This led to many speculations over the past few weeks. Triple H could be bringing them back as soon as on tonight’s Monday Night RAW.
