Ever since Sasha Banks was pulled from the second season of WWE’s Mixed Match Challenge due to an undisclosed injury, there has been a lot of speculation as to her future. The WWE has been quiet on what kind of injury she’s suffering from with little to no update.
The subject was discussed on the Barnburner’s No Holds Barred podcast (via Ring Side News) who reports that Banks ‘just needed a break’:
“What’s going on with Sasha Banks? Did Sasha Banks pull a Shawn Michaels and take her ball and go home? I have heard, I can’t confirm because the only person that can confirm it is Sasha and I haven’t talked to her but I have heard that she just needed a break. A mental break or whatever. She just needed a break. What does that mean? I don’t know. How are the other ladies looking at that, I have no idea but she needed a break and all that.”
Despite her absence from television, Banks is currently advertised on WWE.com for a live event in Portland, Maine on Saturday, October 20 – one weekend shy of WWE’s Evolution PPV.
