The Wrestling Observer is reporting that WWE women’s wrestler Sasha Banks is currently suffering from a “significant” concussion following an injury that she sustained at the May 15th WWE live event in Charlottesville, Virginia. The report further states that Sasha will have to undergo the company’s Impact concussion testing before she is declared fit enough to return.
The report also cites sources that claim Sasha’s injury will likely force WWE to change their plans for SummerSlam regarding Sasha, as she was reportedly scheduled to face Charlotte for the WWE Women’s Championship at the event. Even though SummerSlam is not scheduled to take place until August, Sasha’s concussion is said to be serious enough that she may not be cleared to return in time for the event.
WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair is still signed to his WWE contract despite the on-air spit with his daughter WWE Women’s Champion Charlotte on Monday’s Raw, according to PWInsider.
Flair is not in any kind of trouble with WWE management and is merely being kept off screen as part of the storyline which he will be involved at some stage going forward.
