Sasha Banks suffered a tailbone injury during her Hell in a Cell match against Becky Lynch, and she was subsequently pulled from following events.
But the positive news is that Banks' injury isn't serious. And according to Mike Johnson of PWInsider.com, the former Raw Women's Champion will be present for this tomorrow's taping of SmackDown Live.
Johnson also noted that Banks is scheduled for upcoming shows in Trenton, New Jersey and Rochester, New York. The Legit Boss was drafted to the SmackDown Live brand, thus reuniting her with best friend and former Women's Tag Team Champion partner, Bayley.
Banks' return is obviously great news for the SmackDown Live brand. They'll need her after seeing a major decline in viewership last week, compared to the 20th anniversary and Fox premiere episode two weeks ago.
Banks went on a four-month hiatus from WWE following WrestleMania 35, and she returned two months ago to attack Natalya, thus cementing her first heel turn on the main roster. Banks' run as a villain has been one of the top stories in WWE so far in 2019, and her feud with Lynch was nothing short of entertaining.
But with Lynch on Raw and Banks on SmackDown Live, their feud is all but done for. Bayley also turned heel several weeks ago, and she currently hold the SmackDown Women's Championship. So it'll be interesting to see how WWE uses these two work together in storyline going forward.
WWE will get Drew McIntyre back from injury before long, while Jinder Mahal and Sheamus seem to be getting closer to in-ring returns. As for Nia Jax, it's widely believed that she'll be out for the remainder of 2019 after undergoing surgery on both her knees.
What's Next For Banks?
With Banks and Bayley both recently turning heel, and the latter carrying the SmackDown Women's Championship, it's likely that the two will continue working together. It's obviously too soon to turn either one a babyface again, so a Banks-Bayley feud likely isn't in the works. Perhaps they'll enter the Women's Tag Team Championship picture, and a feud with Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross (both traded to SmackDown) seems like a good bet to happen as well.
