Sasha Banks Unhappy With Her Current Role In WWE

Sasha Banks

Since coming up short in the WWE Women’s Championship Triple Threat Match at WrestleMania 32, Sasha Banks has been considerably deemphasized on television. In the weeks since the night after the event, where she beat Summer Rae in a singles match, she has only competed one other time on television (an 8-Diva Tag Team Match on the Apr. 18 Raw where she was a background player). She then wasn’t used at last week’s televised events.

While company officials have big plans for Sasha in the future and therefore “protecting her” by not having her lose on television, it isn’t something she buys into. She would prefer to be featured.

In the meantime, Sasha has been working her own program online with Summer Rae. In this SmackDown Fallout video from two weeks ago, Summer cut a promo venting on Sasha.

I love coming to Europe. The fans in London are amazing and then the fans all over Europe, they’re so excited to see us. We actually do a lot of things outside of TVs. We go to different soccer games, football games, whatever it’s called. Actually, I think Sasha Banks went to one of ’em. Then there’s the Lamborghini Factory Sasha went to too. I’m sorry, I just get so sick and tired of the same people having the same opportunities. Like, why does Sasha get to do everything? It’s always her face everywhere. I mean, I used to get ‘we want Summer’ chants. As quick as they come, they go. She believes her own hype. She had one good match, at WrestleMania. It was a good match — she blew it, though. She didn’t walk out of there with the women’s championship, did she? No! She’s also not in the title picture at all. So as far as I’m concerned, Sasha Banks and I are on the same playing field. When I step in the ring with her, I’m going to show her that. I’m sick of this.
