Injury note on Sasha Banks

Jan 5, 2022 - by Marc Middleton

Sasha Banks is reportedly dealing with a sprained leg.

As noted, Banks wrestled SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair at Sunday’s WWE live event in Fayetteville, NC, and appeared to hurt her leg or knee while taking an over-the-knee backbreaker. She kicked out of a pinfall but stayed on the mat while the referee checked her out, before they went to the finish with Flair getting the win after a Natural Selection. Banks was then helped to the back.

In an update, PWInsider reports that word going around Monday’s RAW was that Banks suffered a sprained leg during the match with Flair.

There is no word yet on if Banks will miss any ring time because of the injury. The average recovery time for a sprained ankle can be anywhere from 3-4 weeks or 3-6 months, depending on the severity.

Banks posted an update for fans later that night, writing, “I’m good [fist emoji] Thank you for the love always. [heart emoji]”

    A sprained LEG?! The “leg” has many parts. Lord, there is nothing wrong with learning about or reading about things that aren’t wrestling, like economics, medicine, history. It really is a great big world out there. And some of these things actually effect the wrestling business. It’s not always booking or “getting over” that means the difference between success or failure in wrestling. Just ask Bill Watts, whose territory was crushed by oil bottoming out. It’s not sexy, but it’s the truth. ….sprained leg…. oy….
