Sasha Banks says she is 'good' after WWE house show injury scare


Sasha Banks says she's "good" after she was helped to the back following a house show match against Charlotte Flair tonight in Fayetteville, North Carolina. 

Video and photos from the match show Banks landing awkwardly on a tilt-a-whirl backbreaker, as her left knee appears to buckle. There then appears to be communication with the referee in the match, followed by a pause in the action as Banks looks to be determining whether or not she can make it back to her feet. After Charlotte's double moonsault spot, Banks reversed a cradle, but Flair then quickly hit Natural Selection for the finish. The referee then threw up the "x" sign, and Banks was helped to the back by a referee and WWE ringside physician Dr. Chris Amann. 

Banks later tweeted:

"I’m good  

Thank you for the love always."

Banks has been challenging Flair for the SmackDown Women's Championship on house shows, including on five consecutive days during the WWE Holiday Tour last week. In her last televised match, Banks and Toni Storm defeated Flair and Shotzi on the December 17 SmackDown.
