Head injury sidelined Sasha Banks the past week


WWE female wrestling star Sasha Banks missed house shows this past week in Utica, NY, and Reading, PA due to an undisclosed head injury which happened on the 5/15 show in Charlottesville, VA.

Squared Circle Sirens, a website focused on women's wrestling, reported late Saturday night that Banks was injured on the event.

Banks, who hasn't been used in a few weeks on television due to creative reasons of wanting to keep her off TV when they didn't have a program at today's PPV, was still working a full house show schedule up until this past week.

The injury was described as a fluke in a match where referee Darrick Moore accidentally caught her with a solid knee to the head. It was not a spot where Moore and she were supposed to have serious contact.

WWE hasn't confirmed the injury, nor whether a concussion was sufferened. Reports within the industry were that Banks suffered a concussion, which would mean an undetermined length of time before she could return -- any day or a few weeks.
