We have an update on Sasha Banks’ situation, courtesy of television personality Wendy Williams. On Wednesday’s episode of the Wendy Williams Show, Williams announced that Sasha Banks would not be making her scheduled appearance due to a “family emergency”.

The episode was set to be filmed Tuesday, and when Banks missed the filming, show staff and insiders were said to be “fuming” that the former WWE Women’s Tag Team Champion had “bailed” last minute.

Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful released a report stating, “Whatever the situation surrounding Sasha Banks, many on the SmackDown crew had no idea that she’d even missed her morning obligation (despite her tweeting about it), let alone were clued in about what is going on.”

Questions regarding Banks’ whereabouts started Monday on Twitter, when Banks didn’t appear on Raw. The questions intensified when Banks tweeted out a post with a very melancholy undertone.

The news that Banks missed The Wendy Williams Show last minuted only added to the concern over what seemed to be the 27-year-old wrestler’s “disappearance”. Though the situation is still grim, the explanation that Banks has left due to a family emergency at least gives fans a plausible reason for her MIA status.

Sasha Banks and tag team partner Bayley dropped their WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships, and their first-ever reign, last Sunday to the IIconics, during WrestleMania.

The Boss ‘N’ Hug Connection were picked as clear favorites to retain the titles, and when they belts were stripped away, fans were not surprised to see vague and troublesome social media messages. There’s been plenty of fans and critics calling for Banks and Bayley to leave WWE for other promotions, considering how poorly the company has used them since their call-ups from NXT.

The staff at SEScoops wishes for a swift recovery for Sasha Banks’ family, and we hope to see The Boss back in the limelight soon.
