At least they have a time. There are all kinds of reasons for a wrestler to miss a show, but oftentimes fans are left wondering what is causing the absences. That is the case again at the moment in WWE, as one of their more important stars has been missing in action for the last few weeks. It has led to some changes in the lineups, but now we might know a bit more about when she will be back.

According to, WWE is hopeful that Sasha Banks can return to television at the September 10 Madison Square Garden SmackDown. Banks has been out of action since the August 7 WWE live event, including missing her SmackDown Women’s Title match at Summerslam. There is no word on why Banks has been missing, with the only explanation being that she is not cleared.

Banks has not even been back that long. Check out what she can do when she is around:

Opinion: I’m not sure why Banks is gone but it is quite the situation for WWE to be in. Banks was missing from the week after WrestleMania until the middle of July and now she is gone again. She is outstanding when she is around, but at some point she needs to be around for more than a few weeks in a row. WWE will welcome her back as soon as possible, as they should, but how long will she be around next time?

What should Banks do when she gets back? When will she be Women’s Champion again? Let us know in the comments below.
