Rumor Killer On Sasha Banks WWE Money Dispute

Another rumor SQUASHED regarding Sasha Banks potentially returning to WWE.

Sasha Banks

Fightful has moved to squash rumors that talks between WWE and Sasha Banks over a potential comeback for the former Women's Champion have stalled due to a pay dispute.

Via its Facebook page, Dirt Sheet Radio had posted a false aggregation stating that Fightful had reported the above. "Sasha reportedly has a number in mind for her return," they wrote, "and WWE has not come anywhere close to that figure."

The speculation has since been squashed both via Twitter and Fightful Select. So if you've seen these apparently false rumors doing the rounds, know that they did not come from Fightful.


Dirt Sheet Radio has apologised for posting falsified information.

Banks has not appeared for WWE since she and Naomi walked out during a Raw taping in May, reportedly leaving their Women's Tag Team Championship belts on then-Head of Talent Relations John Laurinaitis' desk. WWE publically suspended the duo indefinitely and stripped them of their belts during that week's SmackDown.


Rumors of releases, contract renewals, and everything between have since followed. Naomi and Banks remain sidelined, however, with no indication that either is any closer to returning than they were in the immediate aftermath of WWE's summer regime change.
