WWE fans continue to await the return of Sasha Banks, who last appeared at WrestleMania 35 - where her and Bayley lost the Women's Tag Team Championships to The IIconics.
Banks and Bayley were reportedly unhappy about learning at the last minute that they would be dropping the titles. Banks was granted time off to think about her future with the company, but we still have zero of indication of when and if she'll be back.
There were rumors that Banks would make a return at the Money in the Bank pay-per-view this past Sunday, but that never happened. But it seems like there was a big plan in place for her to make the anticipated return.
Brad Shepard said on Oh, You Didn't Know (h/t Ringside News), that WWE "originally wanted to place" Banks in the women's Money in the Bank ladder match "and have her win."
Even though Banks didn't return, Shepard added that The Legit Boss "still expected to remain in the company." So it only seems like a matter of time until she finally comes back to WWE.

Banks has stayed silent on her current situation with WWE, but she's posted plenty of messages and photos on social media to express love for her fans, plus ones with her and other superstars.
Though Bayley was also unhappy about having to drop the Women's Tag Team titles, WWE was able to make it up by giving her the women's MITB victory - which she used later that night to take the SmackDown Women's Championship from Charlotte Flair. Perhaps WWE will have to do something big for Banks in order to have her come back to the ring.
What This Means
It sure seems like WWE has big plans stored for Banks in the near future. At this point, all signs point to her eventually returning. Hopefully, the company can make it right and give Banks a deserved main event push once again.
