Sasha Banks revealed that he had retired from WWE after WrestleMania 35 because he needed to “reevaluate” his life, according to Express UK. Sasha Banks was not seen in the WWE RAW or WWE SmackDown weekly programs after losing the Team Championships to Bayley with Peyton Royce and Billie Kay of The IIconics at Wrestlemania 35.
Sasha Banks would have been extremely frustrated with the result and asked Vince McMahon, WWE President, for his release after WrestleMania. However, the four-time WWE champion denied the rumors at the time.
The former NXT women’s champion recently returned to the fight and won the title against Raw women’s champion Becky Lynch in the Clash of Champions.
Speaking to US radio station WFNZ, Sasha Bank revealed the reason for his break after WrestleMania 35. “I’ve been doing this for seven years in a row, without interruption,” he said, adding, “Then people must retreat and reevaluate their lives, take care of their souls and their spirits. ”
In the interview that took place before the WWE 2019 Clash Champions, Banks added that he was back and he was better than ever and had won a championship game.
“I’m a star, I’m a main event, I’m a headliner, I make money and I make movements.”
The Raw Women’s Championship in the Clash of Champions saw Sasha Banks beat Becky Lynch by disqualification. In a physical battle that saw the two superstars go everywhere, Banks made a near-late fall when he used Lynch’s body to block the vision of a chair umpire in tribute to his idol Eddie Guerrero . However, the game ended when Banks headed for the ring, as the referee withdrew from his hands. Lynch grabbed him and pointed at him, but unwilling to hit the referee, resulting in disqualification.
The party was followed by an intense physical fight outside the ring, where Lynch hit Banks with the chair and followed him into the crowd where he disarmed her. The fight continues, Lynch again attacking Banks with the chair and a second Dis-Arm-Her to take away a statement.
