Sasha Banks has opened up on what she thinks about the way she is currently being booked and the constant flip flopping of the Women’s Championship.
Sasha Banks is a four time Women’s Champion, which is pretty impressive considering The Boss is only 25-years-old and has only been on WWE’s main roster for a little more than two years. What comes with winning a title so many times in such a short period though is none of those four reigns have been particularly long. In fact, all of them have respectively lasted less than a month.
Sasha’s latest reign came to an end on last week’s Raw when she lost the Women’s Championship to Alexa Bliss in the night’s main event, just eight days after she had beaten Bliss for it at SummerSlam. The Boss’ fans must be wondering what exactly WWE are playing at when it comes to Banks’ short title reigns, and it would seem Banks is getting a little frustrated by it also.
During SummerSlam week, the former Raw Women’s Champion appeared on the Sam Roberts Wrestling Podcast and discussed her less than favorable record when it comes to holding Raw’s Women’s Title. Banks said during the interview that she wasn’t sure whether it’s something to do with her, or if WWE just wants to keep flip flopping the title. The most worrying thing for Banks fans about these comments is they came before her latest eight-day title reign, so by now The Boss will likely be even more frustrated and confused.
“We kind of always knew where we were going, so it helped me prepare and think about it ahead of time about how can I make this better. But when I go to Raw, it’s legit like I have no clue what I am doing so I don’t even know what to prepare for. I get handed something and told something and am like ‘okay, I have one hour to get… okay let’s just do it.’ Honestly, I wish we had the opportunity to know what we are doing in the next three months,” says Banks (transcribed by Sportskeeda)

That wasn’t all she spoke about either. The four-time champion also expressed her annoyance at WWE staging the majority of the Mae Young Classic while she was in Australia representing the company. More or less everyone else on the women’s roster made cameo appearances in the audience, including all three of Banks’ fellow horsewomen.
What WWE is doing right now when it comes to the Raw Women’s Championship is unclear, but treating titles like hot potatoes is rarely a good idea. While Sasha Banks’ example is pretty extreme having held the title for four short bursts, she isn’t alone. Earlier this year Bray Wyatt thought he had his crowning moment when he won the WWE Championship, only to lose it at the following pay-per-view. On the contrary, Asuka just held the NXT Women’s Championship for over 500 days, so maybe WWE could learn a thing or two from its so-called developmental brand.
