Sasha Banks Cleared For Return, Set To Face Nikki Cross On SmackDown
Sasha Banks has been medically cleared for in-ring action by WWE doctors.
Banks had been on hiatus from TV due to injuring her tailbone and was not cleared to compete. She suffered the injury when she wrestled Becky Lynch at the Hell in a Cell PPV.
On Thursday, WWE confirmed that Banks will wrestle Nikki Cross on Friday Night SmackDown from the Manchester Arena in Manchester, England. Banks commented on being cleared by writing the following:

WWE sent out the following:
Get back to work. The Boss is back and set for battle against Nikki Cross on Friday Night SmackDown.
Sasha Banks last competed in a Hell in a Cell showdown against Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch. Since that devastating defeat, The Boss has rallied behind her close friend Bayley by lending a hand to the SmackDown Women’s Champion in her victory over challenger Nikki Cross.
Now Cross seeks payback for The Boss’ involvement and the role she played in costing the former Women’s Tag Team Champion a chance to win the title.
Will The Boss make a splash in her return to the ring, or will Cross make Banks long for a return to the sidelines?
