Sasha Banks reportedly suffers injury at the Royal Rumble
Sasha Banks reportedly suffered an injury during her Royal Rumble title match against Ronda Rousey that kept her off live events and forced WWE to move the tag match between Sasha and Bayley vs Nikki Cross and Alicia Fox from last week’s RAW to Monday. Dave Meltzer reported on Wrestling Observer Radio that Sasha still hasn’t been cleared to wrestle which would explain why her tag match on RAW resulted in the way it did. It featured Fox and Cross attacking Bayley and Banks, resulting in Banks being at ringside, but Bayley working the match alone. The decision to allow Banks to be at ringside was “rare” according to Meltzer but it was done to advance the storyline and get the team qualified for the Elimination Chamber match.
Sasha Banks is expected to be ready to go by the time the Elimination Chamber PPV happens on February 17 in Houston, Texas.
