The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that one person high up in WWE is claiming Sasha Banks tried to quit WWE over the weekend because she felt blindsided when she found out at the last minute that her and Bayley were dropping the WWE Women's Tag Team Titles. However, Banks and Bayley were told they would drop them to The IIconics at WrestleMania 35 in a fatal fourway along with Nia Jax and Tamina, and Natalya and Beth Phoenix. Apparently, WWE has given Banks a few weeks off to think things over as the company feels she has made a rash decision.
I was told that Banks has been vocal in the past about the creative direction but her unhappiness with the company has never been as bad as this week.
Now it's being reported via the Wrestling Observer that Banks is looking to leave the company. In January, the team expressed their frustration backstage and were asked to ride it out for a period of time and that things would improve for a while.
WWE is not expected to grant Banks a release.
Wendy noted on Wednesday's episode that Banks had a family emergency, which is why she canceled her appearance on the show.
Banks didn't appear on Raw, and she later announced on Twitter that she had pulled out of an appearance on the Wendy Williams Show due to personal issues.
Sasha Banks was supposed to wrestle Alexa Bliss in her return to active competition on Monday Night Raw but Bayley stepped in and took the loss to the returning Bliss. Hopefully the opportunity will be there again later.
Banks later tweeted a cryptic message during RAW, which you can read below. It was also revealed that Banks' people contacted the show just after midnight the night before filming to cancel.
