Could Sasha Banks already be planning on leaving the WWE once her contract with the promotion expires?
Banks started off her professional wrestling career in 2010 before landing a contract with WWE in 2012. She won the NXT Women's Championship and had a great run as one of the show's top stars, and really stuck out when she was in the middle of her feud with fellow top star Bayley. "The Boss" made her main roster debut to kick off the Women's Revolution in July of 2015.
"The Boss" played an huge part in the progression of women's wrestling today, in large part due to her rivalry with fellow NXT alumni Charlotte Flair, daughter of WWE Hall Of Famer Ric Flair.

Banks and Flair partook in a number of first for female wrestling in WWE, including the first ever female Hell In A Cell Match, as well as the first ever female Falls Count Anywhere match. Their epic rivalry saw the RAW Women's Championship trade hands between the pair for some time before Flair seemed to win the rivalry and move on to a program with Bayley.
Despite being out of the title picture for the time being, Banks was still very relevant in the evolution of Bayley, as her on-screen best friend defeated "The Queen" with some help from Banks on an episode of RAW. Bayley won the first singles title of her career that night and Banks' attention immediately shifted back to getting her shot at the title.

She was put into a Fatal Four Way match alongside Charlotte, Nia Jax, and Bayley for the RAW Women's Championship. The odds were heavily stacked against the "Hugger" but Bayley was able to successfully retain her title at "The Show Of Shows" nonetheless.
Now, the RAW Women's Title has fallen into the hands of former SmackDown Live Women's Champ Alexa Bliss, who Banks is currently feuding with at the moment. She picked up a win against Bliss at the Great Balls Of Fire pay-per-view (PPV) in their title bout, however, it was via count out so the belt was unable to change hands.
Banks' in-ring career is going rather swell at the moment as she is currently one of the heaviest fan favorites on the WWE's roster, however, she worried some fans recently with a cryptic social media post which indicates that her future with the promotion could be in doubt.
She posted the following on her Tumblr account:
“Two more years left! New beginnings coming”.
