Sasha Banks and Naomi walked out in the middle of Raw back in May, and this led to a lot of changes in the following months. Their future in WWE remains a big question mark, especially in Sasha Banks’ case. Now it seems she is set to appear at New Japan Pro-Wrestling’s Wrestle Kingdom 17 on January 4th.

The Boss has removed all references to WWE from her social media, which led fans to believe she is truly done with the company. In the meantime, Banks’ future might just have been revealed.

According to a report by PW Insider, Sasha Banks is expected to be at Wrestle Kingdom 17. It was not mentioned whether she will compete at the event or if she will just be in attendance.

Mercedes Varnado aka WWE’s Sasha Banks is expected to be at New Japan Pro Wrestling’s Wrestle Kingdom 17 event next month, according to several sources close to the situation.


While it is unknown whether Varnado will be appearing before the live crowd, we are told that NJPW is bringing Varnado in for the event.

Sasha Banks and WWE are still negotiating their money situation. We will have to wait and see whether Sasha Banks will even return to WWE in the future, as it seems unlikely now.
