Which Women's Wrestler is joining the Dark Side?

What’s the story?

Many fans have been wondering what is next for Sasha Banks after she lost the title back in August, but there may be a big character change coming for her.

Twitter account Pro Wrestling Votes, the same account that broke the news on Neville and Nia Jax, suggested that Sasha Banks may be turning heel eventually.

In case you didn’t know...

Banks has been a babyface for a large part of her career in WWE, but many fans consider some of her best work to be her heel run in NXT when she held the NXT Women’s Championship.

Banks debuted on the main roster as a heel and was paired with Naomi and Tamina, but eventually turned face in 2016 and has remained a babyface since.

The heart of the matter

Twitter user Jay87 asked Pro Wrestling Votes about the possibilities of a Banks heel turn and Pro Wrestling Votes responded by saying that they will eventually pull the trigger on the character change.

This is pure speculation at this point and nothing but a rumour, but this account has broken the news on several stories recently, so they may be correct in their prediction of a coming Banks heel turn.

Many fans assumed that the feud between Alexa Bliss and Banks would end with Banks winning the title and turning heel on Bayley when the time was right. But that did not occur, and both Bayley and Banks were all but removed from the title picture.

What’s Next?

Mickie James is currently the No. 1 Contender for Bliss’s Raw Women’s Championship and is facing her for the title this Sunday at the Raw exclusive pay-per-view TLC.

Most fans aren’t expecting James to win the title, but if she does that would open the door for more contenders like Banks.

Author’s Take

Banks’ character is rather plain as of now, but a heel turn could be a great move.
