Sasha Banks is set to make her first public appearance as she has been booked for C2E2 2022 which takes place from August 5 - 7, 2022, at McCormick Place.
She will do an autograph signing for $70 and a photo op for $90. Banks is going by her real name, Mercedes Varnado, and is hyped as "Sasha Banks" and from The Mandalorian.
Banks and Naomi walked out of a WWE Raw event due to creative differences in May. WWE claimed in their statement that Banks and Naomi felt they weren’t respected enough as champions and would later refer to them as ‘unprofessional.” WWE later stripped them of the Women's Tag Team Titles and suspended them.
The latest indication that Banks is not returning to WWE is Peacock removing her from the main app screen, as Banks was one of the images that fans could choose as their avatar. Roman Reigns and Asuka are the only options now.
As previously reported by Pwinsider, Banks, and Naomi were taken off the company's internal roster. Dave Meltzer reported that Banks' attorneys were still working on her release, but she has not been technically released yet.
