Sasha Banks' 'hospital photo' sparks speculation but there's a logical explanation

Published 1 Comments

WWE Superstar Sasha Banks has sparked speculation over her current status in the last 24 hours after a photo uploaded to her official Twitter account appeared to show her at a hospital.


The image, which can be seen further down this article, shows the female wrestler posing next to a sign for the Memorial Hermann hospital in Houston, Texas.

As you might expect, the photo quickly led to concern that Banks had suffered some sort of injury - either at WrestleMania 32 or during her match on Monday's post-'Mania RAW. Now, though, there appears to be a logical explanation to the whole thing.

First, the photo that caused mild panic amongst the WWE Universe...

Although Banks doesn't exactly look in distress in the image, the fact she is even photographed in connection with a hospital was reason enough for fans to worry - especially considering the WWE's current situation with injuries.

What's more, the idea the 24-year-old had sustained an injury was fuelled by accompanying reports stating that she didn't work this week's SmackDown tapings.

Fortunately, however, it looks like WWE fans can all relax after the dots were connected. As noted by Wrestlezone, the Memorial Hermann hospital is one of the sponsors of the Toyota Center in Houston - the venue for last night's SmackDown event.

As such, with Banks enjoying a rare night off from in-ring work, it looks like the former NXT star was simply posing for a photo at a random location backstage at the event. The fact that it was in front of a hospital logo appears to have been a total coincidence.

Strong position

Happily, that should mean that the Massachusetts native should be back in the ring, and on our screens, in the not too distant future and fans don't have to worry about another superstar on the sidelines.

That is good news for both Banks and the WWE Universe as a whole. Although she failed to get her hands on the new Women's Championship at WrestleMania 32 over the weekend, 'The Boss' remains one of the most exciting female stars in the business right now.

As long as she can remain fit and healthy, it surely won't be long before she is able to wrestle the new title away from the current holder, Charlotte.

With the Women's division looking set for a more prominent role, you can be sure Banks will be doing everything in her power to be involved when it matters. Thankfully, that won't include having to recover from a trip to hospital.
