Last appearing on WWE television during the May 13 Friday Night SmackDown, Sasha Banks has remained absent from the company since May 16. That night, she and Naomi – then the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions – infamously walked out of a live Monday Night Raw broadcast.
It’s since been alleged that Sasha Banks remains officially contracted to WWE and was actually in negotiations for a new deal, though exact details of this have yet to be released. Furthermore, ‘The Legit Boss’ was reportedly backstage during WWE’s recent live event in Mexico City, hanging out with former partner and rival Bayley.
Sasha Banks Teases A “Date Is Coming”
Posting to her Instagram story, Sasha Banks teased that an as-of-yet unspecified date was “coming”. Details were sparse, though it appears that she is teasing either her return to or her departure from WWE:
“As time passes, there’s been so much growth and so much beautiful opportunity and the journey that I’ve been loving but as the time also goes on, the date is coming that I’ve been waiting for…the past six months. I can’t wait, but I’m really going to make the most of November to make all my dreams happen in preparation for this date that I’ve been waiting for.
I’m very excited. I hope you guys come along for this journey, which I know a lot of you have been with me for so long so thank you, but I just wanted to let you know there’s going to be something so f*cking crazy coming.”
Sasha Banks says a date is coming that she's been waiting for the last 6 months.

Sasha Banks hasn’t wrestled since an untelevised live event on May 15, teaming with Naomi as they retained the Women’s Tag Team Championships against Natalya and Shayna Baszler. They were officially stripped of the titles during that Friday’s SmackDown broadcast as Michael Cole declared the championships vacant, ending their reign that began at WrestleMania 38.
