Sasha Banks is not happy with WWE and looks to be separating herself from the company even more. Now fans are questioning where that frustration came from and how it got to this point.
Dave Meltzer discussed Banks’ situation in-depth during Wrestling Observer Radio. This was a slow process, but it really came to a head when WWE took the Women’s Tag Team Titles off of The Boss n Hug Connection that they had been given such a promising future with as champions.
“Sasha and Bayley I think in their minds they were like, ‘We’re gonna make these belts something.’ So the Sasha Banks thing — and a lot of people are gonna rip on her for this — but it reminds me so much whether it’s Bret or Ric Flair or you know any of the… I know so many people when it comes to the championships it’s like ‘oh it’s a prop and you take it too seriously,’ but that’s why it works.”
Meltzer noted that WWE gave the WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles to Sasha Banks and Bayley because the women’s division became all about Ronda Rousey as soon as she came in. The structure of who was important in WWE’s eyes changed and suddenly Bayley and Sasha Banks were pushed down the card so they gave them the titles because they were the highest ranking women outside of the main event scene with Charlotte Flair, Becky Lynch, and Rousey.
“Whenever [Sasha Banks] wins a title they take it from her immediately, she never gets the long reign. Her and Bayley it was almost like when they created the tag team titles it was kinda like ‘we’ll give it to them because our top women are like Becky Lynch, Charlotte Flair, and Ronda. Really when Ronda came it was like Ronda’s division and then Becky got over and before then it was sorta like Sasha and Charlotte who were the stars and Charlotte stayed up there, but Sasha didn’t.”
When Sasha Banks faced Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch at WrestleMania in Dallas, Snoop Dogg did her entrance and she looked like a top Superstar. Just three years later she found herself losing the WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles without really getting a chance to enjoy being a champion. This really added to her frustration and recent developments have only proven this.
