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.
