Everybody’s been wondering!
The most recent Monday Night Raw hosted Alexa Bliss vs. Sasha Banks for the WWE Women’s Title. However, for the fourth time in her main roster career in WWE, Banks failed to defend her title.
A lot of fans have picked up on this unfortunate pattern. This fact wasn’t a secret also. It was mentioned several times on the said show.
Now, everybody has been wondering what could be the reason behind this. Most of the fans seem convinced that this is another result of backstage politics, which is not rare in WWE.
The bad booking, the multiple losses, it just seems like WWE is throwing the Banks character aside. Previous reports also say that WWE head Vince McMahon isn’t a huge fan of Banks.
Despite that, McMahon acknowledges Banks popularity with the WWE Universe. Hence, the four-time Women’s Champion was part of some of the most historic matches.
Another reason is said to be Banks injuries. However, as much as fans would like to believe that this is about backstage politics, it could be an entirely different reason.
According to new reports, WWE officials are planning to highlight the Alexa Bliss vs. Nia Jax feud. WWE has hinted this feud for a few months now.
Heel Turns/Face Turns
Reports say that this recent title loss could be a part of a heel turn for Sasha Banks while Nia Jax or Alexa Bliss turns face. The way Raw ended this week, it’s still unsure which of the two will turn face.
On the other hand, Banks’ heel turn could be spotted from a mile a way. With the way this character was booked, turning heel is the most logical choice.
Seeds for an upcoming Sasha Banks-Bayley feud has been planted as well. For the past few months, WWE has been hinting a fallout for the “best friends.”
