There has been speculation from fans in the past week on the reason why Sasha Banks missed last week's NXT TV tapings. She also did not work at the weekend house shows. As it turns out, she is injured. Banks suffered an arm or shoulder injury.
It's not clear whether the injury happened during the match with Becky Lynch at the NXT TakeOver show or if she was already hurt going into that match or if it was a minor injury that got worse during the match with Lynch.
She was scripted for a match on the fourth week of tapings but left to the hospital with her fiancé Sarath Ton when he was knocked out cold in his match at the tapings. Ton works working under the name Kid Makaze in NXT. He's being used as enhancement talent and also has a job as the replacement for seamstress Sandra Grey. Things were said to be scary for a couple of minutes but he was able to leave the ring on his own and was rushed to the hospital.
