Sasha Banks WWE Injury Return Rumors: Heel Turn Could Make Sense For 'The Boss' When She Comes Back [POLL, VIDEO]
When Sasha Banks returns, she should really be "The Boss."
It's no secret that the former WWE Women's Champion is over with the majority of the WWE Universe, which explains why the WWE morphed her into a babyface on the main roster.
It was expected that after her success in NXT and her popularity upon joining the main roster, that Banks would be the next top star in the business. While the world was buzzing when Banks won the Women's Championship from Charlotte, it always felt like something was missing.
Unfortunately, we'll never know if her first run with the title would have led to her changing the game of women's wrestling and becoming the top star of the division because an untimely injury cut her reign short.
At first, her SummerSlam loss to Charlotte last Sunday seemed like another case of bad booking, but it was later revealed she's set to miss significant time.
The loss of the pink-haired WWE Superstar is a huge blow to the women's division on "Monday Night RAW," which is likely what led to the WWE calling up her former nemesis and current ally Bayley.
A WrestleMania 33 match between Banks and Bailey should be a no-brainer for the WWE, but the company could also do something to add an extra wrinkle to the feud. That something would be to turn "The Boss" heel.
Banks got over in NXT because her in-ring ability was better than most main-roster female talent, but that's not the only reason. When she was "The Boss" as a heel, her character stood out and her promos were even better.
The WWE Superstar clearly has a passion for the business and though that emotion is still channeled when she's a babyface, it comes off better when she's a heel talking down to a "good" opponent.
If the WWE wants to get women's wrestling over, all it has to do is use what clicked at NXT and bring it up to the main roster.
If Banks were to return and take out Bayley, leading to a WrestleMania 33 match between the two of them, it would set the stage for them to captivate the audience on the biggest platform in sports entertainment.
Bayley and Banks stole the show at NXT Takeover: Brooklyn in 2015 and had a tremendous Iron Man Match at NXT Takeover: Respect. What worked so well was that Banks was the overbearing heel with attitude and Bayley was the perpetual babyface chasing what seemed unattainable.
The two ladies had magic together and chemistry that just isn't found on the main roster. If the WWE wants to put women's wrestling on the map and usher in an evolution, having Banks turn heel and face Bayley in a lengthy WrestleMania match could very well be best for business.
