The uncertainty surrounding Sasha Banks has been dominating the headlines since WrestleMania and there's still nothing in the way of an update with regards to her future.
The female star has been given time off to decide whether or not she wants to leave WWE, according to Wrestling Observer Radio's Dave Meltzer. And the wrestling cognoscenti has also shed some more light on the situation, claiming that the loss of the tag titles to The IIconics is not the only reason both Sasha and Bayley are disgruntled with the company.
Meltzer claims that, apart from being told that they were to lose the titles on the same day WrestleMania aired, the female tag team was also informed that they would be split up as part of this week's Superstar Shakeup.
“So the Bayley thing, that had to do with the Sasha Banks/Bayley stuff being very unhappy was not only that they were losing the championship that they found on Sunday, but they were told that they were splitting up the team," Meltzer said during a discussion with Garrett Gonzales on the latest episode of Wrestling Observer Radio (h/t mandatory.com).
"Again, put it this way: I don’t know how this is going to relate to Sasha Banks and no one even knows what’s going on with Sasha Banks because she was not booked for TV this week because she has been given a couple weeks to (she is booked for the PPV, but whether she’ll be there or not we don’t know), but she was given a couple weeks to reconsider when she tried to quit privately.
“The thing is that I don’t know if it’s going to help her, but I think it was abundantly clear that it’s not going to help Bayley, this splitting of the team.”
What This Means
Although Sasha has posted a happy-looking photo with the IIconics on her Instagram amid the rumors, her continued absence and following of AEW on Twitter seems to suggest that she's really considering her future with WWE.
Whether or not she has a legitimate reason to be angry could go either way. But one has to expect that such disappointments will come from time to time and are just part of the business.
