Sasha Banks Reportedly Wanted to Leave WWE During WrestleMania Weekend

WWE Superstar Sasha Banks is considering quitting the company, according to reports.

The Wrestling Observer reports that Banks wanted to leave the WWE during WrestleMania 35 weekend, after plans for her and Bayley's Women's Tag Team title run were changed. The Observer reports Banks was under the impression that she and Bayley were up for a long title run to establish the new championships. 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.

WWE reportedly gave Banks a few weeks off following WrestleMania to think things over as the company believes she is making a "rash decision."

Fightful reports the Banks situation is similar to The Revival's, who expressed their frustrations with their position in the company and the state of the tag team division to WWE creative back in January. The tag team were told that things would improve and to ride it out and it looks like the WWE has told Sasha the same.

WWE is not expected to grant Banks a release.

Speculation over Banks arose on Monday, April 8 after Sasha cancelled an appearance on The Wendy Williams show. She tweeted an apology for pulling out last-minute saying, " Due to personal reasons, I had to pull out of my appearance today on @WendyWilliams . Sorry to everyone who was looking forward to it. Hopefully the opportunity will be there again later."

On the April 8 episode of Monday Night RAW, Alexa Bliss took on Bayley one-on-one in a relatively short match. Banks, who is usually ringside when Bayley has a match, was not on the show that night.

Banks later tweeted a cryptic message during RAW, which you can read below.

Banks and Bayley became the first Women's Tag Team Champions at the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view in February. In the weeks following their win, both superstars would go on WWE television and announce they are open to fight any team from any brand - even appearing on an episode of NXT - who wants to challenge for their titles. However, the team defended their titles only once, defeating Nia Jax and Tamina at the Fastlane pay-per-view in March.

Sasha Banks and Bayley have been proponents of creating a women's tag division, teasing it on social media for months. In January, the WWE Women's Tag Team Championships would finally be revealed as a continued part of the "women's evolution."
