I’m hearing Sasha Banks has been released. I don’t know if it’s she requested it or if it was on WWE’s end
If Sasha Banks was given her release, she would immediately become one of the hottest wrestling free agents on the market. Banks has mainstream appeal and may want to further pursue her acting career. Tony Khan and others would be more than happy to talk to Sasha.
With a wide array of options, Sasha Banks’ release would open up a world of opportunity for The Boss. She could immediately elevate the women’s division in AEW. Banks could also test the waters as a Hollywood star.
