Back in May 2022, Sasha Banks and Naomi both walked out on WWE, vacating the Women’s Tag Teak Titles at the same time. While there were negotiations for both to return to WWE, neither ever appeared again. According to Sean Ross Sapp, Banks is now available for wrestling bookings, meaning she is officially a free agent. Neither Banks nor Naomi have wrestled or appeared on a wrestling show since walking out on WWE, though Banks is expected to be at New Japan’s Wrestle Kingdom event later this week.

Banks is a heck of a star. Check out what she can do when she is in the ring:
Opinion: This had to happen sooner or later, as WWE could only keep Banks on the roster for so long without her wrestling or even appearing. Banks does not seem to want to be in WWE anymore and if that is the case, it makes sense for her to leave. It is a loss to WWE as she is an amazing talent, but it seems to be the right time for both sides to move on, which seems to have taken place.
What do you think of Banks’ time in WWE? Where do you want her to go next? Let us know in the comments below.
