WWE star Sasha Banks has been MIA since dropping the Women’s Tag Team Titles to The IIconics at WrestleMania 35 and walking out of the promotion.
Since then she has been spotted at concerts with best friend Bayley, on holiday with Kalisto and his and her respective partners and filming WWE 2K20 commercials.
Now, the AWOL star is in Japan, working out and hanging out with notable wrestlers from the country.
NOAH legend Naomichi Marufuji posted a picture on Twitter of he and Banks together in Japan having had lunch together:

Marufuji was not the only Japanese wrestler Banks lunched with, she also enjoyed sushi and a workout with Tokyo Joshi Pro wrestler Reika Saiki, as seen below:

Banks also spent time with TJP’s Mina Shirakawa, who described her time with the WWE star as “so much fun” and called Banks a “very kind and wonderful woman”.
Last night, it was soooo much fun!
She is very kind and wonderful woman?

It would be easy to read into this that Banks is networking with designs on heading to TJP should she be allowed to leave WWE.
However, TJP is a small promotion and very unlikely to secure Banks if she were to leave, which is almost certainly not happening anyway as WWE has no interest in letting her go.
More realistically Banks is in Japan on vacation and just wanted some like-minded people to hang out with while she was over there.
