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 as Mercedes Mone, taking out KAIRI in the process. Mone took to her Instagram and uploaded several photos of herself wearing a top.
Speaking to Scott Fishman of TV Insider, Mercedes Moné stated that now that she’s a free agent, she can compete anywhere she wants. She added that IMPACT Wrestling star Mickie James is one of the people she would love to wrestle.
“The thing is I’m a free agent. It doesn’t matter with New Japan. I can go anywhere. I can go to New Japan, IMPACT, Mexico, Germany, Europe. The potential matchups are endless. The same for New Japan. I know they have partnerships with CMLL, IMPACT, AEW. To be a fan and watch all these matchups from all parts of the world is amazing. I know there is a little woman in IMPACT I would love to face one day, Mickie James! We’ll see what is in the stars
