Sasha Banks was removed from a series of WWE live events prior to SummerSlam and then was unable to take part in the Biggest Party of the Summer, where she was supposed to take on Bianca Belair for the title of SmackDown champion.
But not only that, since the contest had been regularly announced up to a few seconds after its beginning. The segment, as known, ended with the return of Becky Lynch, who later became the new champion. Now, however, fans are waiting for the return of Sasha Banks.
According to 'PWInsider', however, Sasha Banks is not yet on the road with WWE. She hasn't been traveling with her peers even this past weekend, as she missed out on those live events that WWE has regularly played. But according to the hugely popular overseas site, Boss won't be back this week either.
"Sasha Banks wasn't on a WWE trip this past weekend and unless there's a last-minute change, we're told she won't be back this week either," the 'PWInsider column reads."
Sasha Banks was not featured on the SummerSlam go-home show
The current hope is that Sasha Banks will return by September 10, but this is not confirmed to happen.
Obviously, the company would like to have her at that show, which will be held in Madison Square Garden. Also, and this is the aspect that she seems to be interested in the most to fans, it has not been confirmed why she has been out of action lately.
Bianca Belair spoke about the absence of Sasha Banks, on the same night as the SummerSlam dispute and a title now lost. "All I can say is that I am sorry that there was no match against Sasha Banks tonight, but I believe that sooner or later she and I will be back in the ring.
the last few weeks have been difficult for her and here at SummerSlam, I was ready to finish with her for good. Surely we will finish what we started and only after that point will I be able to finally focus on Becky Lynch", declared on that occasion the now-former SmackDown champion.
Sasha Banks is expected to finally return to SmackDown for the super show at MSG. The hope is that Banks will be on the road for the weekend of September 10. While this outcome is uncertain, it is the current expectation within WWE.
There have been no details regarding the reason for Banks' sudden absence from SmackDown. While it was reported that both Belair and Banks might not be cleared to compete at SummerSlam, it was only The Boss who had to miss the Biggest Party of the Summer.
