Sasha Banks walked out of WWE, and now she is free agent. 2023 could be Banks’ year, but she also left a lot behind in WWE.

“Has she left? I don’t know. Maybe,” Dax Harwood said on FTR With Dax. Sasha Banks and FTR are friends, and Harwood seems to be someone who might know a thing or two about the situation.

Dax Harwood then opened up and said what he could about the subject. He might know more than he is saying, but his carefully chosen words spoke volumes about some of the issues Sasha Banks faced in WWE.

“She did take the women’s tag team titles very seriously, but yeah, she took wrestling very seriously, too. She did not get into wrestling just to get into wrestling, you know. She got into wrestling, so she could make a difference, and, not just for women’s wrestling, but for all of wrestling.”


Sasha Banks obviously takes a lot of pride in her work. She considers pro wrestling an art form, and this is the reason why her passion led to that famous walkout in May. Dax Harwood went on to say how Banks’ pride might have rubbed people the wrong way.

“Sometimes, speaking from personal experience, pride can rub people the wrong way because you do stand up for what you believe in. You don’t take ‘no’ for an answer because you want the best for yourself, but you want the best for your craft, your art form.

“You take it so seriously, man, it’s a recipe for success, but also a lot of people aren’t going to like you because of it. I think that is what kind of what maybe happened to [Sasha Banks].”

All signs point to Sasha Banks appearing at NJPW’s Wrestle Kingdom 17 event, likely as Mercedes Mone. Naomi, Banks’ tag team partner, is also in Japan ahead of the big event.

We will have to see what’s next for Sasha Banks, but her passion for pro wrestling certainly has not diminished.
