Backstage Notes on Sasha Banks Missing WWE NXT Events, Update on Actor Possibly Wrestling for WWE

Sasha Banks

– We noted before that Actor Stephen Amell of Arrow, who worked a brief angle with Stardust at RAW this week, has expressed interest in guest hosting and possibly wrestling in the past. It’s now confirmed that WWE is looking at doing some sort of program between Amell and Stardust.

– Regarding WWE NXT Women’s Champion Sasha Banks missing last week’s NXT live events and TV tapings, there is now talk that she suffered either an arm or shoulder injury. It was reported earlier this week that she was not injured.

Banks was scheduled to work a match during the 4th episode of last Thursday’s NXT TV tapings but she left to go to the hospital when her fiance Sarath Ton, working as Mikaze, was legitimately knocked unconscious during a tag match with Jason Jordan and The Vaudevillians. As noted, Sarath was recently hired as the new WWE seamster. We don’t know yet if Banks went into her Takeover match against Becky Lynch with the injury or how serious it was. As noted before, it’s possible she didn’t wrestle at the tapings due to Sarath’s injury and now we know that her match was scheduled on the same taping that he was injured on.
