Though Finn Balor could possibly be facing a lengthy absence after suffering a shoulder injury at SummerSlam, WWE officials received better news on the injury status of Sasha Banks.
According to Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com, Banks is not expected to be out of action very long. Her injury, which relates to her back, won’t require surgery, so she could be back sooner than previously feared.
The decision to have Banks lose the WWE Women’s Championship at SummerSlam was made because of the injury.
After beating Charlotte for the title on Raw last month, Banks dropped it back to her at SummerSlam on Sunday. The event was originally supposed to be Banks’ coronation, but the decision was made to have her win the title for the first time on the first post-draft episode of Raw to kick off the brand split.
