Sasha Banks did not appear on Raw this week and fans are wondering what happened to her.
WWE revealed on September 21 via Cathy Kelley that Banks suffered an injury that will keep her out of the Mixed Match Challenge competition. With “The Boss” sidelined, Mickie James joined forces with Bobby Lashley.
According to PWInsider, Banks was not backstage at Raw this week at the KeyArena in Seattle, Washington.
Banks hasn’t wrestled since September 9 at a live event in Biloxi, Mississippi, where she teamed up with Bayley, Ember Moon, and Natalya in a victory over Alexa Bliss, Alicia Fox, and The Riott Squad. WWE is being very secretive about the nature of her apparent injury. Dave Meltzer asked people in WWE about her and couldn’t get a straight answer other than she’s dealing with a health-related issue.
“I don’t have a specific injury. She’s off for medical reasons is all that I know,” Meltzer said. “As far as whatever else, obviously they’re keeping that one quiet. It’s not like I haven’t asked.”
Meltzer continued, “Whatever reason, I don’t know why they wouldn’t say. Usually, when they don’t say, there’s usually a story as to why and you end up getting more suspicious.”
Meltzer added Thursday in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, “Whatever the injury to Banks is that has kept her out of action the past week is something that has been kept quiet. The only thing we’ve been told is that she’s taking time off for a health-related issue.”
Sasha’s mysterious absence has led to rumors that she’s pregnant.
