Sasha Banks returns to WWE with new look, new attitude

Sasha Banks returns to WWE: Raw, Aug. 12, 2019

Unseen in WWE since WrestleMania 35, Sasha Banks makes a statement by interrupting Natalya, attacking the injured Queen of Harts and brawling with Becky Lynch.

It’s “Boss Time” once again.

Appearing on WWE programming for the first time since WrestleMania 35, Sasha Banks reemerged on the Raw after SummerSlam, but it wasn’t the warm homecoming the WWE Universe might have been expecting.

One year after the passing of her father — WWE Hall of Famer Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart — an emotional Natalya addressed the WWE Universe, and The Boss made an unexpected appearance to seemingly console The Queen of Harts. However, Banks instead sucker-punched Natalya, tearing off her purple wig to reveal her all-new blue hair and an aggressive new attitude to match, as she relentlessly pummeled the fan-favorite Superstar.

Becky Lynch, who defeated Natalya and dislocated her elbow one night prior in their Submission Match at SummerSlam, rushed to the aid of her rival to bring the fight to the bitter Boss, but Sasha fought off her fellow Horsewoman with a steel chair, repeatedly striking the Raw Women’s Champion at ringside.

Although it’s clear Banks returned to WWE to make a statement, it remains to be seen why she targeted Natalya, displaying decidedly uncharacteristic brutality. Regardless, The Boss is back, and she might be more “Legit” than ever.
