WWE had big plans for Sasha Banks

In recent days there has been a lot of talk about Sasha Banks, former WWE main roster world champion, who has suffered her umpteenth injury that will force her to stay out of the federation scene for a time ranging from six to eight weeks.
Apparently, the WWE was starting to bet a lot on its athlete, given the forfeits of the various Bayleys, Alexa Bliss or the many athletes released, such as Mickie James, Nia Jax, Lana and several other colleagues, with the women's department, both at Monday Night Raw and Friday Night Smackdown, which seems increasingly skimpy and poor in star power.
In the upper part of the Raw and Smackdown card, in fact, there are very few athletes who could hold up the comparison with Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch, with only Sasha Banks and Bianca Belair who now have such a status that they can be the challengers for the title in one of the Wrestlemania cartel matches.
What's next for Sasha Banks?
According to what was revealed in the last few hours by the well-known site Wrestling Observer, through the daily newsletter of Dave Meltzer, we learn that apparently, the WWE would have had some grandiose plans for Sasha Banks in view of the Royal Rumble and then consequently in view of Wrestlemania 38.
It is not known at the moment what is trashed and whatnot, although Banks will almost certainly miss the first Big Four PPV of the year, the equally certain thing, according to Meltzer, is that WWE had foreseen yet another Charlotte Flair vs Sasha Banks for Mania.
After seeing some wonderful feuds between the two former NXT athletes, WWE would have anticipated a new face-to-face confrontation between the two Horsewomen of the company. At the moment, however, we do not know if the federation has already changed its mind or if it will manage to create this storyline from nothing, without going through the Royal Rumble, a bit like it did for Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar, when the first had to jump.
Day One for the covid, where a huge angle was expected to bring the two up to Wrestlemania. As per the latest report by Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Bayley could make her return very soon. Meltzer stated that The Role Model could return to action next month or in March.
Sasha Banks recently suffered a foot injury at a WWE house show and is likely to return to action on the road to WrestleMania as well. "Bayley’s return from reconstructive surgery could be as early as February but is more likely March. Banks’ return is also mid-March."
