Sasha Banks & Natalya In-Ring Segment 

Everybody wants to know why. Where has Sasha Banks been? For four months, Sasha was gone. Out of sight, minding her own business. Not talking to anyone. People can’t keep her name out of their mouths. Sasha Banks threw a fit, yes she did. Sasha was seen crying in the locker room at WrestleMania, yes she did. Sasha took her ball and went home, yes she did. She was relegated to being in a tag match that she didn’t care about. She couldn’t care less about the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships. Meanwhile, Becky Lynch got to wrestle in the main event against Ronda Rousey.

Sasha went on some vacations using her WrestleMania pay check. She came back and she had a plan. It had to be a perfect moment and there she was, Natalya. Her poor innocent one armed friend. She gave Natalya a hug and lied straight to her face. Look who comes to save the day? Becky Lynch, right on cue.  You saw what happened to her. Now Sasha Banks is the center of attention, as she properly deserves. You wanna know why? She’s the standard of the women’s division. She’s The BO$$. Now she deserves all this glory. Sasha gets in a pull apart brawl with Natalya to close the segment.
