News today involving Sasha Banks, RAW Ratings, Hardy Injured and more!
Sasha Banks Done With WWE?
Unless you have been living under a rock the past few weeks, you know about issues Sasha Banks has with WWE. I’ve covered it in some of the news shuffles that you can read here, and here, and there have also been some great opinion pieces done by Chairshot writers Rob Bonnette, and Tom Clark. Banks has been absent from WWE TV since WrestleMania, and according to the latest edition of Wrestling Observer Radio, there are no plans for her to return. Dave Meltzer stated:
“I was told it had gotten WWE’s attention and that Vince McMahon texted The Undertaker about the appearance. ’Taker’s representation, which is a company called Get Engaged, called to tell me, ‘WWE says he can’t do it.’?”
Thompson and company had to know they were taking a gamble at signing the Undertaker to appear at Starrcast. Especially being the event is closely associated with All Elite Wrestling, even though the event is a separate entity. I was looking forward to hearing from the Undertaker during his Q&A, as he is the one wrestler fans have wanted to hear stories from for years.
Jeff Hardy Injured?
According to Wrestling Observer Radio and Dave Meltzer, Jeff Hardy was recently injured at a live event this past weekend. According to Meltzer, Hardy suffered what appeared to be a leg injury. Hardy did not work Sunday’s live event, but appeared in the corner of Matt Hardy while showing a significant limp.
Hear is hoping for a quick recovery for Jeff Hardy.
Ronda Rousey Unsure About WWE Future
Shortly before WrestleMania, Ronda Rousey was reportedly set to leave WWE for her “impregnation vacation.” While WWE has not commented on Rousey’s status, Rousey posted an update on her YouTube channel not only confirming her reported hand injury, but also the long rumor that she would be leaving the company to start a family.
“As for WWE plans in the future, we wanna have a baby first. I don’t know what it’s like to have a baby. I could look down at this beautiful child and be like ‘f**k everything I don’t care about anything else.’”
Regardless of how many feel, Rousey did do a lot for the women’s revolution. She had a big hand in the attention the women’s division was garnering from the mainstream media. Rousey plus WWE equals money. I wouldn’t be surprised if Rousey returns to WWE at some point.
