It's well-known by now that Sasha Banks has been extremely dissatisfied since her and Bayley dropped the Women's Tag Team Championships to the IIconis at WrestleMania 35, and things appear to be getting worse.
According to Brad Shepard, Banks has told WWE that she won't "be coming in next week," and some inside the company did what they could to help her change her mind.
According to a source in #WWE, Sasha Banks told someone in the company she would not be coming in next week, and they were unable to convince her otherwise at the time of the conversation. I‘ll have more on this story which hasn’t been reported on this coming week’s #OYDKWS.— Brad Shepard (@TheBradShepard) April 13, 2019
Things have quickly taken a turn since WrestleMania 35 last week. Slice Wrestling initially reported that Banks was involved in a backstage incident at WrestleMania in East Rutherford.
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter later added that Banks tried to "quit" when she found out last-minute that her and Bayley would be dropping the tag team titles. However, Fightful.com later reported that sources in WWE weren't expecting Banks to be granted a release from her contract.
Banks also made headlines when she canceled her appearance on the Wendy Williams Show. She also began following AEW on Twitter, while unfollowing WWE's account. All of this has only happened over the past week, and you can't help but ask what more could take place leading up to her possible departure.
After being called up to the main roster, Banks was quickly pushed in the women's division. She endured a run as the Raw Women's Champion and faced Charlotte Flair in the first women's Hell in a Cell match back in 2016.
But WWE has stopped pushing her over the past couple of years, and after taking the title belts off of her and Bayley, it certainly seems like creative isn't keen on pushing her in the near future. That might be more than enough for her to leave WWE and explore other opportunities.
What This Means
Unless WWE decides to change the direction of Banks' character, all signs are pointing to an ugly exit from the WWE. The Legit Boss has every right to be unhappy about being pushed down the card, and if the company isn't willing to change that, Banks should waste no time in exploring a potential career in AEW.
