An update on Sasha Banks.
According to Mike Johnson at PWInsider, Sasha Banks is not at WWE SmackDown in Phoenix, Arizona.
Johnson notes, "the word making the rounds is she may have been pulled from WWE SummerSlam." There is no confirmation that Banks has been pulled from SummerSlam and WWE is still advertising her for the event. She is scheduled to challenge Bianca Belair for the SmackDown Women's Title at SummerSlam.
Banks and Belair were pulled from live events on August 14 and 15 due to "unforeseen circumstances." PWInsider reported on August 18 that both women were cleared to compete at SummerSlam. Belair is reportedly backstage at WWE SmackDown.
Banks has done media with WWE The Week leading up to SummerSlam.
Fightful will continue to monitor the situation and update fans as more is known.
Fightful will have live coverage of WWE SmackDown beginning at 8 p.m. ET on Saturday.
