WWE Superstar Bayley has been making waves with her heel persona, which has garnered significant fan popularity. Notably, she was part of the tag team known as The Boss 'n' Hug Connection alongside former WWE Superstar Sasha Banks.
Together, they made history by winning the Women's Tag Team Championship at the 2019 Elimination Chamber event, becoming the inaugural champions. While Bayley remains a prominent figure on WWE's SmackDown roster, there have been persistent rumors of Sasha Banks' potential return to the company after her absence.
However, recent reports suggest that a new deal between Banks and WWE might not be on the horizon due to failed negotiations. A recent Instagram post by Bayley featuring herself alongside Naomi, FTR (formerly The Revival), and Sasha Banks had fans speculating about a possible WWE comeback for The Boss.
Unfortunately for Banks' enthusiasts, this photograph was actually taken last year. Consequently, it seems unlikely that she will return to the WWE and reunite with her real-life friend, Bayley. The image shared by Bayley is actually from Mercedes Moné's debut in New Japan Pro-Wrestling (NJPW), which took place during her visit to Japan in support of her former WWE tag team partner, Sasha Banks.
The relationship between Bayley and Sasha Banks, both in and out of the ring, has been a topic of interest. Bayley once revealed that their friendship didn't initially come easily, despite their seamless teamwork inside the squared circle.
She explained that during their early days in WWE, they both had reservations about forming a friendship, perhaps due to Sasha already having established connections in the company. However, as time went on, they discovered common ground in their shared passion for wrestling, having been fans since childhood.
This realization, along with their parallel character development, brought them closer. Their friendship deepened, and they found synergy in working together, especially during the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic.
In summary, while fans had hoped for Sasha Banks' return to WWE, it appears that the recent Instagram post by Bayley was a nostalgic nod to their past and not a hint at an imminent reunion in the wrestling world. Nevertheless, the legacy of The Boss 'n' Hug Connection continues to be a cherished part of WWE's women's division history.
