We noted over the weekend that Mike Johnson of PWInsider mentioned on PWInsider Elite Audio that Sasha Banks’ attitude could have contributed to her not being in a prominent position in the women’s division, among other factors.
Johnson explained that he asked Sasha about her attitude during WrestleMania weekend and she blew him off. He also explained that that spotlight had been taken off of her for a number of reasons.
“There certainly have been stories about her with her attitude and her and I had talked about that WrestleMania week and she kinda blew it off. In some ways saying that she does not have an attitude with the fans but has an attitude of if you are bothering her in a place where she has not made it publicly known that she would be there then you are out of line.”
“I don’t think there is any reason why the shine on her has gone away. There is probably a plethora of reasons including some of the factors you mentioned in your questions but it’s not just one thing. It’s a number of things. whether she sorta gets that focused unrestricted push again, that remains to be seen but I don’t think she’s really diminished in terms of her work in the ring. I just think they haven’t focused upon her as much as they were in the earlier days where it was her, Charlotte, Becky, Paige and others who are in the women’s division.”
In an update to Johnson’s remarks, he decided to go on Twitter and claim that he never made the above statements.
Anyone claiming I reported Sasha Bank's push was killed for attitude problems is incorrect. It was never a story I reported. Instead of asking me if I did, support @PWInsidercom and find out for yourself what I actually wrote, said and reported. Thank you.

This isn’t the first time that Johnson has gone on an audio show and said something only to retract his statement or say that he has never said it before. Johnson is merely trying to stay face now because Sasha sent out a cryptic tweet seemingly directed at the reports of what Johnson had said.
Anyways for that reason we have included the audio of Johnson’s remarks for you all to listen to.
