Not only did she injure her knee by crashing into the ring post during the Women’s Tag Team Championship match, but also was at the receiving end of Shayna Baszler’s wrath. However, this was not all that ‘The Boss’ had to sustain during the match.
The latter half of The Boss ‘n’ Hug Connection stomped several times on her leg before the final brutal blow. She wrapped a steel chair around Sasha Banks’ neck. Following this, she proceeded to jump off the second rope to stomp on it.
This is when the former WWE champion was taken to a local medical facility. She went straight from the WWE ThunderDome to an ambulance and is currently undergoing evaluation.
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.
The end of the Sasha Banks-Bayley union is here
This is the beginning of the end for The Golden Role Models. The fact that Sasha Banks and Bayley would break up was being rumored after the first time they lost the Women’s Tag Team Titles to Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler.
During the pandemic, they were ruling every WWE brand. Unfortunately, following SummerSlam 2020, Sasha Banks lost her WWE Raw Women’s Championship to Asuka while Bayley managed to hold on to her WWE SmackDown title against the same opponent.
Now, they have also lost the Tag Team titles. I feel it’s been particularly hard for Sasha Banks.
Banks and Bayley are the second Women’s Tag Team and real-life best friends to break up on WWE television this week. The IIconics also had to part ways following their defeat at the hands of The Riott Squad.
