For some reason, WWE has been keeping Sasha Banks’ status a secret. That has led to speculation on why she has disappeared from television and all live events. She is scheduled for an event in Portland next weekend but there are no guarantees she will be there. The same goes for the European tour in November. She was also pulled from an appearance this week on MTV’s “Ridiculousness” and was replaced by Becky Lynch.
The reason why she’s been off shows is because of a back injury, according to Ryan Satin. He noted that it’s been difficult to get confirmation on her injury from sources. There is no word on how serious the injury is but she has been dealing with back issues for years.
Banks dropped the Women’s Championship at SummerSlam 2016 because of her back issues. Her back injury in 2016 wasn’t serious enough for her to get surgery at the time and she claimed that she was just dealing with a back bruise.
Let’s hope that her current injury is not going to keep her out of action for a long time. As of this writing, she is not advertised for a match at the Evolution pay-per-view.
