Sasha Banks Is Working With WWE Again, But Not Necessarily Wrestling


It’s been a month and a half since WrestleMania, and the rift between Sasha Banks and WWE management does not seem to have healed. As you’ll recall, after a couple of days of canceled events and ominous tweets, reports came out that Sasha had tried to quit WWE during WrestleMania. The initial assumption was that she was upset about how quickly she and Bayley were made to drop the Women’s Tag Team Championships to the IIconics, but later accounts from various sources revealed that this was also when she and Bayley found out that WWE was splitting them up, meaning they wouldn’t even get a chance to chase those titles or have a rematch. Since then, Bayley has found her greatest in-ring success in years, while Sasha has simply been absent.

Now according to PWInsider, Sasha Banks was seen in New York City this week to work with WWE. Apparently she was there to do something for WWE 2K20, the next WWE video game, which will presumably come out later this year. That’s not the same thing as working a wrestling show, nor does it necessarily mean she’ll be back on WWE TV anytime soon, but it does mean that she’s still in open communication with the company, maintaining her professional ties, and living up to at least some of her contractual obligations. We’ll have to wait and see if there’s more news coming on whether or not we’ll get to watch her wrestle for WWE in the near future.
