Sasha Banks reportedly tried to quit WWE following WrestleMania 35

As per The Wrestling Observer, Banks wanted to leave the WWE during WrestleMania 35 weekend when she got to know about her and Bayley's Women's Tag Team title run were changed. That Fatal 4 Way saw The IIconics capture the titles by defeating Banks and Bayley, Nia Jax and Tamina Snuka, and Natalya and WWE Hall of Famer Beth Phoenix.

One source told us that Banks and Bayley were in in the happiest mood in recent weeks, especially because they were expecting to defend their titles on NXT but that changed when Vince McMahon made a decision to put the titles on The IIconics.

Whether or not she is simply playing up the drama of the rumors circulating around her career remain to be seen.

WWE reportedly gave Banks a few weeks off following WrestleMania to think things over as the company believes she is making a "rash decision". In January, the team expressed their frustration backstage and were asked to ride it out for a period of time and that things would improve for a while. It was also noted that it was logical for Banks and Bayley to assume they would have a run of defending the titles on WWE NXT, RAW and SmackDown, just because that storyline was started in the first place.

On Sunday night Sasha Banks and Bayley walked into WrestleMania 35 with the WWE Women's Tag Team Title belts, but they didn't walk out with the gold. Sorry to everyone who was looking forward to it. Though some staffers with Williams' show claimed that Banks would never be invited back to the show, Williams herself announced Banks missed the taping due to a family emergency, and would be invited back.

A tweet posted by Pro Wrestling Sheet writer Ryan Satin has prompted even further speculation as to where Banks' future may lie. It was also revealed that Banks' people contacted the show just after midnight the night before filming to cancel.
