Has Sasha Banks just given the clearest indication yet that she could be about to make a sensational return to WWE?
On August 1st it was reported that an “agreement had been reached” for Sasha Banks and her tag team partner Naomi to return to WWE.
The two women haven’t been seen on WWE television since they walked out of the May 16th edition of Monday Night Raw following a row over creative. WWE later confirmed that the Women’s Tag Team Champions had handed their title belts to former Head of Talent Relations John Laurinaitis on the way out.
On the following episode of SmackDown WWE announced that the pair had been suspended indefinitely and stripped of their titles.
However, with Vince McMahon no longer in position as CEO and Chairman, and Triple H installed as Head of Creative, there has been a new expectation that the pair will return.
During her time with WWE to date, Banks has become known for her brightly coloured wigs which are often tailored to match her ring gear. Perhaps interestingly, during a recent meet and greet event in Chicago, Banks appeared in a new multi-coloured wig which has only added to speculation that she will be heading back to WWE.

On the August 5th episode of SmackDown WWE announced that a tournament will begin on the upcoming edition of Raw to crown new Women’s Tag Team Champions. A move which has only further added to the rumours that Banks and Naomi could be set to return.
