Sasha Banks has been officially cleared to return to in-ring action. “The Boss” responded to a tweet from WWE’s Twitter account, writing “HunTAH check finally cleared!” She accompanied her words with emojis of a money bag, cash, and an emoji with dollar signs for eyes.
WWE’s statement confirmed that Banks would be competing on this week’s episode of Friday Night SmackDown in Manchester, England. She’ll be taking on Nikki Cross, who is seeking revenge against Banks for her involvement in her recent match against SmackDown Women’s Champion Bayley.
“The Boss” had been out of action thanks to a back injury. She suffered the injury during her matchup against Becky Lynch during WWE’s Hell in a Cell pay-per-view in October. Despite having been advertised at previous shows in recent weeks, her match against Cross will see her finally get back into the ring.
This is great news for Sasha Banks and her passionate fanbase. She was recently moved to SmackDown during the WWE Draft and is expected to be a key player on the blue brand in the months ahead.
