Sasha Banks was frustrated with Vince McMahon’s booking of the WWE women’s tag team division, and that led to her walking out on the company during the May 16, 2022 episode of Raw. Now, The Boss is heading to Japan.

As previously reported, Sasha Banks is set to attend the Wrestle Kingdom 17 event in Tokyo Dome on January 4, 2023. This will be her first appearance for a wrestling promotion in nearly a year.

Dave Meltzer recently reported that Banks appearance for New Japan Pro Wrestling isn’t booked through WWE. The veteran journalist noted that NJPW believes Banks will become a free agent by the time Wrestle Kingdom 17 arrives.

“This deal is not through WWE, so if the appearance isn’t blocked legally by WWE, it means she will be a free agent by that date. WWE can still sign her but NJPW believes she is free and clear by 1/4.”


Current IWGP Heavyweight Champion Jay White said he’d love to introduce himself to Sasha Banks and ask her if she’d be interested in joining the Bullet Club. Keep reading Ringside News for more.
