Sasha Banks might be returning with an instant shot at the title.
Becky Lynch had no real challengers for a while, at least not since Ronda Rousey left. The only one who comes close to being a challenger is Charlotte Flair, but she is on the blue brand at the moment. Then there is Alexa Bliss as well, but once again she is looking at the blue brand.
With a little shortage of star power, a lot of people believe Sasha will return as a heel on the Raw roster for one purpose only… To take the title from Becky Lynch. Since Becky had no substantial challengers of late, this theory does not sound so crazy.
There has been a lot of speculation surrounding the future of Sasha Banks in WWE ever since her last appearance on television at WrestleMania 35.
Now, following an update from PW Insider, it seems clearer now more than ever that the four-time Raw Women’s champion will remain with WWE.
Sasha Banks and Bayley attempted to make the Women’s Tag Team Championship relevant after winning the newly introduced titles in a six-team Elimination Chamber match in February 2019.
However, after an underwhelming rivalry with Nia Jax & Tamina, The Boss ‘n’ Hug Connection’s 49-day reign as champions came to an abrupt end at WrestleMania 35 when they were defeated by The IIconics’ Billie Kay & Peyton Royce in a Fatal 4-Way tag team match.
It was reported at the time by Pro Wrestling Sheet’s Ryan Satin that both women complained loudly in the locker room and outside one of their hotel rooms about WWE’s decision to have them lose the titles.
PW Insider’s Mike Johnson is reporting that Sasha Banks is working on the WWE 2K20 video game today:

“Sasha Banks, who was in the Northeast a few weeks ago for WWE, was filming content for the forthcoming WWE 2K20 video game in Orlando, Florida.”
Regarding her future in WWE, Johnson added:
“So, for everyone still asking about her standing with the company, that should tell you all you need to know.”
Short-term, we can expect to see more cryptic posts and holiday pictures from Sasha Banks on social media. Long-term, it seems obvious that “The Boss” is going to return to WWE at some point in the next few months.
