Potential Spoiler On Sasha Banks’ Return To WWE

Is Sasha Banks’ hiatus from WWE coming to an end?

According to a tweet today by Brad Shepard of Pro Sports Extra, the absent WWE Superstar is currently scheduled to make her return this Sunday at SummerSlam.

Shepard previously claimed on July 7 that Banks’ return to WWE was “imminent” after “everything was smoothed over” a short while before. He claimed that lingering heat between Banks and Alexa Bliss was squashed, with SmackDown Women’s Champion Bayley playing peacemaker. Banks is “happy with changes being made” and that her “tantrum is over.”

As far as what Bliss has to do with Banks’ returning, Shepard said their heat had to be squashed before they could share a locker room again.

Banks hasn’t stepped inside the ring since she and Bayley dropped the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship to The IIconics at WrestleMania 35 on April 7.

Wrestling Observer Newsletter editor Dave Meltzer was first to report that Banks tried to quit WWE after feeling “blindsided” over their decision to have her and Bayley drop the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship at WrestleMania 35. They were not informed until the day of WrestleMania 35 that they would be losing the titles to The IIconics in a Fatal 4-Way Match that also included Beth Phoenix and Natalya, and Nia Jax and Tamina.

Banks and Bayley lost the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship less than two months after they winning the titles at the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view. They were vocal about their desire to make the titles meaningful. As a result, Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet also reported that Banks and Bayley were “laying on the floor of the locker room on [WrestleMania] Sunday, and back at the hotel in front of one of their rooms, loudly making it known they were unhappy about losing the tag titles.”

As part of the Superstar Shake-up, Bayley was moved to SmackDown LIVE and Banks was kept on the Raw roster. Bayley then said that she is on her own again as a singles competitor, which means The Boss ‘n’ Hug Connection has likely come to an end.

Banks’ contract status isn’t publicly known, but WrestleVotes reported in May 2018 that she re-signed with the company at the time, which suggests there could be multiple years remaining on her deal.
