Back on January 7, it was reported that Sasha Banks had potentially suffered the most dreaded injury in all of sports: the undisclosed injury. At the time, she had already missed a few shows, and there wasn’t really much to go on in terms of when we could see her back in action. Sasha responded to the rumors by saying “Not these reports again,” but that’s about as non-committal as every guy I’ve tried to date in the last year.
Today, PWInsider is reporting that Banks is currently out with an injury to the MCL in one of her knees. Apparently she suffered the injury during her match against Becky Lynch on Raw at the end of December. She’s expected to return sometime in February. It’s not great news, but at least her shoulders are intact and her neck seems to be fine? Man, we don’t have a lot of bright sides going for us in WWE right now, do we?
WWE has been extra careful in controlling what news gets out and when lately. Their partnership with ESPN is still pretty fresh, and they’ve been very deliberate in the way they themselves handle ‘breaking news.’ Also, there’s that whole thing where it seems like every one of their Divas and Superstars is injured or hiding an injury or denying an injury or mysteriously away for reasons that definitely aren’t being injured nope not at all HEY look over there is that AJ Styles?? *runs*
