Sasha Banks cleared to return for WWE Elimination Chamber

Sasha Banks has been cleared to return to in-ring action after being out following the Royal Rumble.

Dave Meltzer reported on last night’s Wrestling Observer Radio (which you can see a clip of below) that Banks was cleared to compete at WWE Elimination Chamber on Tuesday. She was given partial clearance on Monday, which allowed her to do the barricade spot.

Banks last wrestled at the Royal Rumble, where she lost to Ronda Rousey in a Raw women’s title match. After not wrestling the following day, Bayley and Sasha Banks defeated Nikki Cross and Alicia Fox in a qualifying match to enter the Elimination Chamber on last week’s edition of Raw. Cross and Fox jumped Banks before the match, keeping her out of the bout entirely.

On Raw this week, Banks and Bayley competed against the teams of Nia Jax & Tamina and Liv Morgan & Sarah Logan. Banks was given a partial clear to be thrown into the barricade, which again kept her out of most of the match.

WWE.com has since ran a story saying that Banks has re-aggravated a shoulder injury, which is likely to play into the match on Sunday.
