After a four-month absence, former champion Sasha Banks made her return on Raw last night and quickly inserted herself in the Raw Women’s title picture.
Banks interrupted Natalya’s promo in the ring as she was talking about the one year anniversary of the death of her father Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart and after hugging her, Banks attacked Natalya from behind and proceeded to whoop her all over the ring. Sasha also revealed her new blue hair style after taking off her purple wig.
Becky Lynch, who defeated Natalya on Sunday at SummerSlam, came out for the rescue but Banks attacked her too, hitting her with a steel chair.
Sasha has not been seen on WWE television since WrestleMania 35 where she and Bayley lost the Women’s Tag Team titles. Banks was pretty vocal about how she was being used and decided to take a leave of absence. During the weekend, Becky was interviewed by Sky Sports in the UK and ripped on Sasha Banks, saying she couldn’t hack it and couldn’t take a loss. She then invited Banks to come fight her.
