Take this for what it’s worth but several readers sent word that Sasha Banks just unfollowed @WWE and @VinceMcMahon and she is currently following several AEW-related accounts, including the official @AEWrestling account and the accounts for Cody Rhodes, The Young Bucks and Kenny Omega. Many fans on Twitter have also picked up on this.
This comes after Banks reportedly tried to quit WWE over the weekend after she was told that she and Bayley would be dropping the Women’s Tag Team Titles to The IIconics.
A source in WWE tells us that Banks does not have any issues with the IIconcis and the issues are with the company because of the numerous start-and-stop pushes.
Just last month, Banks and Bayley appeared on an episode of NXT and promised to defend the titles on all brands. That was the plan at the time but those plans changed during WrestleMania weekend.
Banks also pulled out of her scheduled appearance on “The Wendy Williams Show” and producers were told that she was dealing with a “family emergency.” Show staffers were said to be “furious” at Banks for pulling out at the last minute. Banks is currently on vacation with her husband in the Dominican Republic.
WWE sources tell us that she has not been granted her release and they are hoping she changes her mind because they do not want the perception that their talent is unhappy and they certainly do not want their wrestlers leaving for AEW.
