WWE’s Original Money in the Bank Plans Involving Sasha Banks
As noted before, Sasha Banks has been away from WWE since WrestleMania 35 last month due to on-going issues regarding her booking and career direction in the company.
Dave Meltzer reported in this week’s Wrestling Observer Newsletter that WWE originally had plans for Banks to be one of the competitors for this year’s women’s Money in the Bank ladder match prior to her issues with the company. It was also reported that Dana Brooke was not originally planned to be one of the participants and instead was added as the replacement for Banks.
Prior to the official announcement of the women’s participants being made earlier this week on RAW, WWE officials reportedly were still leaving Banks’ spot open in case she returned in time for the event.
