Sasha Banks has checked in with another update regarding her recent trip to Japan.
The 4-time Raw Women’s Champion was last seen at WrestleMania 35. She and Bayley dropped the WWE Women’s tag team championships to the IIconics. During her hiatus, there were reports that Banks was unhappy with WWE creative. This led to speculation that her time away might be more than just a vacation.
Over the past week, Sasha Banks has been in Japan training in the ring. She is also sporting her signature purple hair once again, took part in a WWE 2K20 video game shoot, is advertised for an upcoming RAW TV taping and is featured on the promotional artwork for SummerSlam.
Taken together, these factors indicate her return to WWE is imminent.
Sasha Banks’ Statement
Sasha Banks wrote the following on Instagram about her experience in Japan:
“In life, there are a lot of things I’ve always wanted to accomplish. Not for the sake of telling the world I did it, but for me, and only me. Things that feed this hunger inside me. Things that, when everything else in the world disappears, still brings me a heartfelt of joy that makes me remember why I am who I am.
This past week I was lucky enough to travel to japan and train with some of the best wrestlers in the world. I walked in with an open mind, and open heart, and became a student once again. To say that this was a dream come true is an understatement.
Don’t be surprised to see Sasha Banks back on WWE TV as soon as Sunday’s Extreme Rules pay-per-view (Predictions).
