Sasha Banks unfollows WWE, follows AEW
- Jan-Jaap Abbink
Rumours over Sasha Banks' alleged dissatisfaction with her current employers received a fresh sprinkling of this spice this weekend thanks to the WWE's performer's very intriguing social media activity.
Eagle eyed fans over on Reddit - or at least, those religiously glued to their smartphones - noted that the recently deposed WWE Women's Tag Team Champion unfollowed her current paymasters on Twitter, and began following... you guessed it... AEW.
This is the digital equivalent of scratching your name off a local tree and replacing it with a new beau. Sasha <3 AEW 4EVA IDST.
It had been reported this past week by Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet that Banks and partner Bayley were livid about dropping their titles to The IIconics at WrestleMania 35, with the pair supposedly loudly airing their grievances in the hotel after the show:
Heard from a few sources now saying Sasha Banks and Bayley were laying on the floor of the locker room on Sunday, and back at the hotel in front of one of their rooms, loudly making it known they were unhappy about losing the tag titles.— Ryan Satin (@ryansatin) 12. april 2019
Sasha Banks was absent from this Monday's episode of Raw. Meanwhile, Bayley was soundly thrashed by Alexa Bliss in an inexplicable encounter.
All this smoke certainly seems to point to a mounting fire behind the scenes, but given we're in the Reality 2.0 era, this could yet all be an elaborate meta-ruse to drum up interest. As they say: watch this space.
