The WWE Universe is wondering why Sasha Banks has not appeared regularly on television despite being one of the best women’s wrestler in the world. According to the latest WWE rumors, Banks is still working a full schedule and she will be part of a long-term storyline in the future.
The Boss’ last match was on the Monday Night Raw after WrestleMania 32 wherein she defeated Summer Rae via submission using the Bank Statement. She also appeared at WWE Payback 2016, talking to Shane McMahon as part of the New McMahon Era storyline.
The 24-year-old wrestler has been absent from TV ever since and does not have a program or a match heading into Extreme Rules. Her last storyline was the WrestleMania 32 feud with Charlotte and Becky Lynch for the WWE Women’s championship.

Nonetheless, Banks is still working a full schedule but is not being booked to appear on television. According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, The Boss is being kept off WWE TV on purpose because she is going to be part of something bigger in the coming months.

Daily DDT reported that Banks is still wrestling live events and house shows. There is also a rumor going around that she will be teaming up with Becky Lynch to face Emma and Dana Brooke at Extreme Rules in a tag team match.
However, Emma is out indefinitely due to herniated disc on her back and is scheduled for surgery. Dana Brooke will likely fill in for her and continue the feud against the Irish Lass Kicker.
