According to Mike Johnson of PWInsider, Sasha Banks is in Orlando, FL today filming content for the WWE 2K20 video game. This is great news for Banks fans who want to see her eventually getting back into a WWE ring.
It also sounds like she was in New York, also doing work for the company.
Banks hasn’t appeared on WWE programming since WrestleMania 35 and speculation about her contract status has been heavily debated since that time. She’s flooded social media with cryptic posts but not commented directly on her status with the company.
She released a tweet on Sunday that had a lot of people talking when she posted a photo of herself sitting in an NXT ring and said, “There was nowhere to go but everywhere.”
Banks is still under contract with WWE and the assumption was that there was no way they would let her out of that deal and free her up to join a promotion like AEW.
The closest we’d heard prior to this news that Banks was anywhere close to returning to WWE was when it was reported she’d met with Vince McMahon on May 23 and things were “said to be better”.
At that time, it was thought she might return during the summer.
