Report: Top WWE Star Not At Tonight’s SmackDown Taping, SummerSlam Match In Question
One of the top bouts on the card for WWE SummerSlam is up in the air.
Mike Johnson of PWInsider reports that Sasha Banks is not present for tonight’s taping of WWE SmackDown, and there’s some concern that her SmackDown Women’s Championship match with Bianca Belair won’t be happening as scheduled.
“Sasha Banks is not at today’s WWE Friday Night Smackdown taping in Phoenix, Arizona and the word making the rounds is she may have been pulled from tomorrow’s Summerslam PPV,” wrote Johnson.
Earlier this week, Belair and Banks missed WWE live events due to what had been announced as “unforseen circumstances.” Johnson notes that Belair is present for the taping in Phoenix tonight, but Banks is not.
Earlier this week, both Banks and Belair were reportedly cleared for the SummerSlam match, barring an “unforseen” development.
WrestleZone will provide more details as they become available.
