Sasha Banks made a return to WWE in August after a four-month hiatus, and she made a big impression in Toronto on the night she came back.
Banks set herself upon both Natalya and Raw Women's Champion Becky Lynch and made a huge statement by leaving both laying after brutal steel chair attacks.
The Boss has only competed twice since her return but she's already been guaranteed a title match against Lynch at Clash Of Champions this weekend, and she may be the one to finally dethrone the Lasskicker.
The last pay-per-view Banks had a bout on was WrestleMania 35, where she and Bayley lost the Women's Tag Team Championships to The IIconics in a Fatal Four-Way match.
It was reported that both Banks and Bayley remonstrated backstage over the decision to take the titles from them so soon after they'd captured them, after they were reportedly promised a long, meaningful reign.

Banks was not seen on Raw the following night, and for the next few months her absence was clouded in mystery, despite apparently doing promotional work for WWE in that time-frame for the upcoming 2K20 game.
Sasha has now lifted the lid on why she took a leave of absence whilst talking to The Mac Attack on U.S. based radio station WFNZ.
"I've been doing this for seven years straight, no breaks," Banks told the show, per Sky Sports.
"People need to step back, re-evaluate their lives, take care of their souls, and their minds.
"I'm back and better than ever. I got myself a championship match on Sunday, so I think I did quite well for myself."
As CM Punk found out and was surprised about recently, WWE superstars seem to be getting more chance of downtime and to have a break from the ring nowadays.
Banks has benefitted from this and she's back and ready to be the top heel in WWE, and she's planning on becoming a five-time Women's Champion this Sunday.News Now - Sport News
