It’s looking like Sasha Banks is getting closer to making her WWE TV return.
Fightful Select reported today “The Boss” was backstage at Friday’s SmackDown TV event from Jacksonville, Florida. The report noted they have not been told of any creative plans at the moment for Banks.
One thing that is known, which is Banks won’t be getting the next title shot at the SmackDown Women’s Championship as WWE has already confirmed that Becky Lynch will defend the title against Bianca Belair at the Extreme Rules pay-per-view event later this month.
Banks has been absent from WWE over the past few weeks. She first missed live events the weekend before SummerSlam. She was pulled from her SmackDown Women’s Title match with Belair at this show.
WWE was originally hoping that Banks could return on the weekend of September 10th, which sees the company hold a SmackDown TV event in New York City at Madison Square Garden.
