Published 3 Comments

One of the biggest shocks at WWE SummerSlam was seeing former Women's Champion Charlotte win her belt back from Sasha Banks.

Banks had only won her championship in late July and it was expected that The Boss would have a long title run before dropping the strap.

It emerged soon after SummerSlam had ended that Banks has been removed from all live shows for just over 30 days. The next event she is now scheduled to be at is a house show in Moline, Il. on September 23.

The news was first reported to Wrestling Inc., but no official reason has been given for the WWE taking one of its hottest acts off of its programming.

Pro Wrestling Sheet has since reported that Banks is dealing with back pain and her possible injury is the reason she dropped the title last night.

According to the report she has been dealing with pain in the lower lumbar section of her back for some time and the company is having her get it evaluated in early September. Dropping the belt in this scenario would just be as a precautionary tactic.

The window of just over 30-days also led people to believe that there could be a Wellness Policy violation report coming out. The well connected Wade Keller however Tweeted that he does not expect this to happen.

While Banks had been a heavy favorite entering the weekend late betting shifted to the side of Charlotte. This means that whatever the issue Banks has is it was known ahead of time by those close to the industry.
