While it is widely expected that Sasha Banks will return to the ring at some point in the future, there is still some speculation as to where. Although many expect her to return to WWE, others feel a shock move to AEW might be on the cards. However, Ric Flair believes there is only one likely destination for The Boss.
Sasha Banks hasn’t featured on WWE television since walking out of the May 16th episode of Monday Night Raw with her tag team partner Naomi. The pair were the Women’s Tag Team Champions at the time but left following what was reported to be a fall-out over booking.
The pair were later removed from the opening signature, their merchandise pulled from WWE’s online store and they were never referenced on television. While it was also reported that Banks was attempting to free herself from her WWE contract. However, with a change at the top of WWE, it is believed that a reconcoiliation is more likely. Furthermore, Banks has been pictured training in numerous wrestling gyms across the world in recent weeks.
Ric Flair Comments On Sasha Banks Speculation
Despite this, there is still a question over where Banks might return to the ring. Speaking on his To Be The Man podcast, Ric Flair said that he cannot imagine Sasha Banks not returning to WWE, commenting that she “wouldn’t go to AEW.”
“Absolutely [cannot imagine Sasha Banks not returning to WWE]. She wouldn’t go there [AEW]. She’s been in Mexico wrestling too. I talked to her. I’ve talked to her a couple of times. [Betting that she would wind up back in WWE?] Yeah, if she likes to do anything, she’s looking at outside options. (…) I hope that she gets back in the business.”
Sasha Banks hasn’t wrestled since appearing at a WWE live event on May 15th in Roanoke, Virginia.
