Britt Baker & Sasha Banks

As speculation swirls around the future of Sasha Banks, Britt Baker has revealed that she would love to face the former SmackDown Women’s Champion.

More than a week after she walked out of an episode of Monday Night Raw alongside her tag team partner Naomi, Sasha Banks remains the talk of the wrestling world.

After the walkout, WWE announced that the pair had been “suspended indefinitely” and stripped of their Women’s Tag Team Championships.

Following the announcement, WWE removed all Sasha Banks and Naomi merchandise from their online store, as well as taking them out of the ‘Then. Now. Forever’ opening package.

While it has since been reported that WWE have “zero plans” for the pair to return.

Although it remains unknown as to when or indeed if, Sasha Banks will wrestle again, AEW star Britt Baker has thrown her hat into the ring as a future opponent. Speaking to Blake Oestriecher of Forbes, the former AEW Women’s World Champion said that she would love to face The Boss.

“Since it’s a pretty hot topic right now, I’m going to say Sasha Banks.…I think she is one of the top draws in all of WWE. She’s such a superstar, she’s such a good wrestler. She’s definitely somebody that I would love to wrestle,”

Back in AEW, Baker is currently preparing to face Toni Storm in the semi-finals of the Owen Hart Foundation Tournament. Regarding her opponent, the star said that Storm is one of the best female wrestlers in the world.

“Toni Storm is a star. We really got lucky that she fell into our hands. She is arguably one of the best female wrestlers in the world. She looks like a rock star. She is a rock star.”

The finals of the Owen Hart Foundation Tournament will be held at Double or Nothing where Baker or Storm will square off against Kris Statlander or Ruby Soho.
