It appears as though the Sasha Banks versus Becky Lynch match advertised to open Monday's Raw might be changed. Banks is out, Charlotte in.
One of the big storylines for this Monday's Raw was supposed to be that Sasha Banks would take on Becky Lynch for the right to draft first in the next rounds of the WWE Draft. The winner would pick first in the draft pool. Lynch vs. Banks was announced on Friday Night SmackDown as a way to continue to the draft into Monday's show. But, things may have changed.
Thanks to an injury suffered at Hell in a Cell, Banks may not be cleared to compete. WWE has not confirmed the change but the cable TV listings show Becky Lynch vs. Charlotte Flair on Raw to determine the number 1 draft pick, not Sasha. Banks has been unable to compete since the pay-per-views and WWE must have hoped she'd be ready to go. The listings appear to indicate that she isn't.
PWInsider was the first to report that Banks had suffered a tailbone injury at the Hell in a Cell. As a result, she was not cleared to wrestle last week on Raw. And, while her missing this Raw is not the end of the world, WWE had clearly set things up to make her a prominent part of the proceedings and this doesn't help her standings.
This Could Just Be A Mistake
As of this writing, the WWE.com preview still lists Lynch vs. Banks but there are times when the listing don't accurately reflect what's going to happen on the show. Perhaps this listing is not updated and they do leave it open so that fans know the card is subject to change. Or, perhaps WWE is hoping Banks will be good to go.
With Banks in the match, it would have been interesting to see if she would have finally gotten that illusive win she's yet to grab over Lynch since coming back.
