Despite Sasha Banks’ continuing WWE absence, Charlotte Flair believes that she will share a ring with the former SmackDown Women’s Champion again.
Although there have been hints that a return could be just around the corner, Sasha Banks and Naomi are yet to return to WWE television.
The pair walked out of the May 16th Monday Night Raw taping and haven’t appeared on WWE programming since. The two women were stripped of their Women’s Tag Team Titles and neither has commented publicly on their current status.
During an appearance on the Broken Skull Sessions, Charlotte Flair was asked her opinion on the pair’s walkout. Flair said that she wasn’t sure exactly what happened as she was also away from the company, but added that she can’t imagine not wrestling the stars again.
“One, I haven’t been there, because I left after (WrestleMania) Backlash. I know what it’s like to jump on social media and read these headlines that are so far from the truth. I don’t know what happened. What I can say is, I can’t imagine never wrestling Sasha again. That would be hard for me to compartmentalize. We started together. She’s my Ricky Steamboat, my dad always tells her that.
With Trin [Naomi], we just had a hell of a match on SmackDown and I’m like, ‘Oh, there is unfinished business there’ because of circumstances and storylines and whatever, we just, ‘here, you two wrestle.’ For me, I just can’t imagine not working with them. In terms of what they’re going through, it’s not my place to speak on behalf of the company or them because I’m not there right now,”
Charlotte Flair hasn’t wrestled since being defeated by Ronda Rousey at WrestleMania Backlash. During her absence Flair married AEW star Andrade El Idolo.
It was recently reported that everyone in WWE expects Sasha Banks and Naomi to return to action, with an appearance now being a matter of when and not if.
