The first real sign that Sasha Banks might be on her way back to WWE showed up in the form of a local ad out of Connecticut for the Money in the Bank Ladder Match.
Much like happened with the men's ladder match ad — one that showed seven men competing including Ricochet, Aleister Black, Andrade, Lars Sullivan, Rey Mysterio, Cesaro and Drew McIntyre &mdahs; a women's graphic made its way around social media on Saturday which included eight women. Sasha Banks was among the females advertised for the match by the venue in Connecticut that will be hosting the pay-per-view on May 19, 2019, suggesting she'll be back in time for the show.
There were reports WWE wanted Banks back for Money in the Bank, but nothing had been confirmed since she left WrestleMania 35, seemingly upset that she was booked to lose the tag titles and over how she was being used on television.
So this lineup for the Women's Money in the Bank match leaked from a a local advertisement. Tamina? She can barely move. Why would you put her in this match? pic.twitter.com/Mrtjmo1peP— Quokka Brenda (@nerdBrenda) April 27, 2019
The other women in the match, as listed on the ad include Tamina, Natalya, Naomi, Bayley, Carmella, Ember Moon, and Sonya Deville.
Obviously, WWE can change a graphic and they do always include a condition that matches can change, so this shouldn't be taken as a definitive report that Banks is on her way back. That said, it seems odd that WWE would approve the ad in the first place if they didn't believe Banks would be part of the show.
What This Means
There are rumors Banks may get the win here to appease her. It will be interesting to see if she does return and go over in this match. If so, there will be a few fans who are on her case because she will have been rumored to have whined to get her way, while others will say she's been deserving of a big win for a long time.
If all the reports are true of her unhappiness and her trying to get released from her contract, WWE has a tricky decision on their hands. Do they give her what she wants or stand firm on any original plans?
Alexa Bliss is set to announce the Money In The Bank ladder match participants next week on A Moment Of Bliss during Raw. It will be interesting to see if Banks' name is included.
