Sasha Banks has been out of action since she suffered a concussion during a six-woman tag match at a WWE live event on May 15.
The Boss was going for a pin attempt when opposing team member Lana stepped up onto the ring apron to distract the referee. As the referee turned back around, he accidentally kneed Banks in the head as she had moved from where she originally was.
It was then reported that the former NXT Women's Champion had suffered a serious concussion and she hasn't been seen on WWE programming since. Although this was obviously an accident, it's a damaging blow for the Women's division nevertheless.

However, there is some good news on the horizon for WWE fans on the Banks front, according to a report by Wrestling Inc.
Their report said: "The "freak accident" happened when the referee accidentally hit Sasha in the head with a solid knee shot. Our original report briefly had the referee misidentified. It was actually referee Darrick Moore involved in the incident.
"In an update on Sasha's condition, Uproxx reports that she did suffer a concussion and her next evaluation is scheduled for this coming Saturday. It was also noted that it's anticipated that Sasha will pass the evaluation and be cleared to return to the ring.
"It was indicated on this week's Wrestling Observer Radio that the current injury Sasha is dealing with is significant and could put SummerSlam plans in jeopardy as WWE has wanted to do Sasha vs. WWE Women's Champion Charlotte in August."
So Banks will have her next concussion evaluation this coming weekend and if she passes, she could be returning to the ring on Monday Night Raw next week at the Resch Center in Green Bay, Wisconsin. Fingers crossed.
Better yet, The Boss passing her concussion test could dismiss the rumor that she will not be having a match against Charlotte at SummerSlam later this year for the WWE Women's Championship. Great news for fans of arguably the most popular female star on the roster today.
WWE may be reluctant to give Sasha Banks the Women's title if she does face Charlotte at SummerSlam because of her injury history, but they know if they did, the title would be in good hands, in the hands of a woman that can help take the entire division to new heights.
She has great in-ring work, good mic skills, and would be a brilliant Women's Champion.
