Sasha Banks not signing to WWE for this reason

Last updated

Former (?) WWE Superstar Sasha Banks appears to not be resigning with the company for a reason that was recently revealed.

Speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer claimed that Banks had not resigned with the company due to both parties being ‘far off’ in terms of money.

“Okay, there’s a lot to this one. I had talked with WWE about it, and they had nothing to say as far as the situation” Meltzer began.

“We’d talked about this before. They [WWE] had been talking to both of them, but they had been talking to her [Banks] about a return, and they were very far apart on money. That was the last that I had heard’¦.What she was asking for was a very high number for a WWE woman wrestler, but if you look at the amount of money that WWE takes in, she would still be underpaid” Meltzer claimed.

Has Sasha Banks left WWE?

“Everyone from Roman Reigns to Brock Lesnar is underpaid’¦That was the last that I had heard. Now, her contract was set to expire at the end of the year. However, as we’ve seen with so many people, they could freeze the deal.

“She is going to the show, she will be on the show, she will not be wrestling on the show” Meltzer added, referring to the New Japan Wrestle Kingdom event in January 2023.

“She has dates booked with NJPW. In her deal, which I believe is not signed, she could still sign with WWE, and this could all fall apart, but she has pretty much agreed to their terms. As far as they’re [NJPW] concerned, they have a deal” Meltzer concluded.
