The Sasha Banks-Bayley split finally happened on this week’s episode of SmackDown. Bayley turned on Sasha Banks and unleashed an unforgiving assault on her best friend following their tag team titles match against Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler.
Sasha Banks had suffered a career threatening knee injury during the losing effort, and she even refused medical attention following the match.
However, Bayley would snap and attack Banks. The assault on Sasha Banks ended with the SmackDown Women’s Champion wrapping a steel chair around Sasha Banks’ neck before stomping on it from the second rope.
WWE has now released a career threatening medical update following the brutal attack. Sasha Banks was taken to a local medical facility, and she is being evaluated.
Here’s WWE’s statement on the Sasha Banks’ condition:
“The Boss seemingly sustained a knee injury after crashing into the ring post during the WWE Women’s Tag Team Title Match, then being on the receiving end of Shayna Baszler’s relentless offense.
But the worst was yet to come for Banks. After she refused medical attention, Banks was brutally attacked by her partner and best friend, Bayley, who culminating the assault by wrapping a steel chair around Banks’ neck and jumping off the second rope to stomp on it.
What Do We Expect Next From The Sasha Banks-Bayley feud
Based on the nature injury, Sasha Banks should ideally be kept away from WWE TV for the foreseeable future. WWE is also expected to release more information on Sasha Banks’s career threatening knee injury in the hours to follow.
While Banks will be out of action to recover from her injuries, the former Women’s Champion would get a great babyface welcome when she eventually returns to get some retribution against Bayley.
