WWE are reportedly prepared to let Sasha Banks sit out the rest of year contract rather than let her leave.
The 27-year-old superstar has not been seen since she and Bayley lost the Women’s Tag Team titles to The IIconics at WrestleMania.
WWE Sasha Banks and WWE are at a ‘stalemate’ over her fight to be released from the company
After the creation of All Elite Wrestling, backed by billionaire Shahid Khan, a number of talents have quit Vince McMahon’s company.
Banks’ hiatus is believed to be down her requesting her own release after becoming unhappy at the way she has been used over the past two years.
But WWE have refused her wishes, and instead are hoping she will have a change of mind, and they are allegedly prepared to stand firm even if she does not.
Wrestling Observer Newsletter’s Dave Meltzer said: “Sasha Banks’ situation is unchanged, they are right now at a stalemate.
“The word is that if she wants to sit out the rest of her contract, she can sit out the rest of her contract.
“If you know what that means, that means she’s going to be sitting out forever because they are going to add time for her not working.”
Banks was believed to be furious after WWE broke promises about her and Bayley’s run as tag champs.
