Sasha Banks signs new WWE contract
- Jan-Jaap Abbink
Sasha Banks and WWE have come to terms on a new contract that will see 'The Boss' remain with the company for the foreseeable future.
This is according to Bryan Alvarez during a recent episode of Wrestling Observer Live, though he could offer no specifics on how long the extension lasts for or any other details.
2019 was a tumultuous year for 'The Boss' prior to her recent return. Though she and Bayley were crowned the inaugural WWE Women's Tag Team Champions at Elimination Chamber, they lost the straps to The IIconics at WrestleMania 35, prompting a lengthy Banks hiatus after reportedly trying to quit at 'The Show of Shows.'
The ensuing months brought countless social media teases and speculation that Sasha would leave for a promotion like AEW, though she returned as a heel on an August episode of Raw. Now, she and Bayley have reunited, and she's set to challenge Raw Women's Champion Becky Lynch at Clash of Champions.
Banks, like Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows before her, is seemingly reaping the benefits of tying her future to WWE. It's probably safe to assume that this deal is significantly more lucrative than her previous one as well.
