Ever since Sasha Banks walked out of the WWE several months ago, she hasn’t stepped back in the ring and as made few public appearances. While everyone predicted that Sasha will make her WWE return under the new regime, fans were stunned when it was reported that Banks would be making an appearance at Wrestle Kingdom 17. Of course, Banks didn’t walk out of WWE alone, and she might not appear in NJPW alone either.
PW Insider is now reporting that Sasha Banks will not be along in Tokyo this week, as her former tag team partner Naomi is also slated to be in Japan. As of writing this article, there is no official confirmation regarding whether she will appear at Wrestle Kingdom.
PWInsider.com can also exclusively confirm that Banks’ WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship partner Trinity “Naomi” Fatu is is currently slated to be in Japan. Should Fatu appear in some fashion at Wrestle Kingdom 17 in some fashion, it would be her first appearance in wrestling circles since she and Banks walked out of a May Smackdown taping.
However, should she decided to show up at the Tokyo Dome, it will be her first appearance in wrestling circles since she and Sasha walked out of the company. It was not noted that Naomi is planned to be a part of Wrestle Kingdom at this point. This could mean that Naomi is coming to support her friend Sasha Banks.
While we know that Sasha Banks will be at Wrestle Kingdom, we still don’t know in what capacity will she make an appearance. Is she going to just be a special guest, or will challenge someone to a match? We will have to wait and see.
This is certainly an interesting story, and it will continue to unfold in the next couple of days. Stay tuned to Ringside News as we keep you updated on this story as it develops.
