Not every superstar in the WWE can go over and win at WrestleMania. Someone has to eat the pin or tap out and suffer a loss on The Grandest Stage of them All.

At WrestleMania 35, Sasha Banks and Bayley lost the Women's Tag Team Championship to The IIconics in a Fatal four-way match against The IIconics, Natalya and Beth Phoenix, and Nia Jax and Tamina.

The Boss 'n' Hug Connection only became the inaugural Women's Tag Team Champions back in February at Elimination Chamber, so a handful of fans were surprised they lost the titles so soon into their reign.

According to reports, one person that was surprised by the title change is Banks herself, and she may be looking to take drastic action.

The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, via Bleacher Report, has reported that The Boss was upset that WWE decided at the last minute to put the titles on The IIconics and she may have tried to quit WWE over WrestleMania 35 weekend as a result.

The report also states that WWE has given the four-time Raw Women's Champion time to think in hopes that she will reconsider her position. This may help to explain why she pulled out of The Wendy Williams Show earlier this week.


It would be a big surprise if WWE allows Banks to walk away since she is one of the best performers in the women's division.

However, considering the rise of All Elite Wrestling (AEW), it's not surprising that Sasha wants out of her current predicament in search of greener pastures away from the WWE where she hopes to receive more respect for her talents.


This draws similarities to the recent departure of Dean Ambrose, who left WWE upon the expiration of his contract due to long-standing frustration with the creative direction of his character.

It's unlikely that we see WWE grant Banks' request to leave the company due to how talented she is in the ring and the rise of AEW. Then again, we said the same things about Ambrose before his departure, so you never know.
