Sasha Banks will return to WWE Friday Night SmackDown on next week’s episode.
The return was announced on Friday but has been a major promotional point throughout today’s NFL games on FOX.
For those that missed it, WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion Bayley turned on Banks on the September 4th episode of SmackDown. It has been a program in development for months as Banks and Bayley at one time held all of the main roster titles out of the women’s division.
In a storyline update, WWE noted here on dot com that Banks suffered a severe bone bruise in her knee and compressed nerve in her neck following Bayley’s attack. The “injuries” are kayfabe in nature, as she is healthy.
Meanwhile, Bayley will defend the WWE SmackDown Women’s Championship against Nikki Cross later this month at Clash of Champions. Obviously WWE did not want to do Bayley vs. Banks as they will give the program time to build.
