There have been titbits about Sasha Banks missing some recent scheduled appearances due to a family emergency; however latest report suggests a very different reason for her absence.

According to a higher-up source of Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Banks actually tried to quit WWE sometime over the WrestleMania weekend.

Sasha, alongside her partner Bayley became the Inaugural Women’s Tag Team Champions during Elimination Chamber recently. She was under the impression that the duo will have a strong run with the belts to establish credibility to the new Championships.

However, she was made aware of the decision to put the belts on the IIconics during WrestleMania at the last minute, and according to reports, the former Champion felt blindsided by this call.

This led to her trying to quit the company and the Officials have given her a few weeks to think things over as they believe that she may have made a rash decision.

Sasha Banks was called out by Alexa Bliss on Twitter this Monday morning but she did not appear on this week’s episode of Raw. Her partner Bayley ended up taking a singles loss to Bliss during the show.

Rumors about The Boss’ status started spreading after she missed a scheduled appearance at The Wendy Williams Show on Tuesday and made a cryptic tweet claiming that she wants to feel the magic again.

There is no word yet on how WWE will handle the situation if Sasha decides to stick with her decision after the given period but letting her go when AEW looks to be closing in on a TV deal will not be a wise decision.

Though we have no details on her contractual status with the company and it’d be interesting to know what choices WWE will have if she makes a conclusive decision on quitting. We’ll keep you posted on the matter.
