It seems as though Sasha Banks has been pulled from her match with Becky Lynch on tonight’s Raw, and has been replaced by former SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair.
While WWE.com still has the match listed as Lynch vs. Banks, a number of TV listings guides are now showing Lynch vs. Flair as the match. The winner of the match will earn a first draft pick for their respective brands in the all important WWE Draft.
The DirecTV preview for tonight’s RAW reads like this: “Day two of the WWE Draft. Plus, Becky Lynch vs. Charlotte to determine the #1 pick on RAW.”
It was noted after WWE Hell in a Cell that Banks had suffered some kind of back injury, and it was later revealed to be a tailbone injury of some kind.
Banks, who was drafted to SmackDown last week, was supposed to team with Bayley at this past weekend’s live events to take on Flair and Lynch, but was replaced by Tamina of all people, suggesting Banks is not cleared for in-ring action.
It could be that there will be an angle tonight which sees Flair replace Banks, but we will have to wait and see whether that is the case, or whether WWE simply glosses over everything.
