In case you didn't know...
The past two weeks have been a rollercoaster ride for Sasha Banks. The former Women's Tag Team Champion was reportedly not happy on losing to The IIconics at WrestleMania 35. It was rumored that Sasha and Bayley threw a backstage tantrum after losing the titles.
Later, Banks unfollowed WWE on Twitter, and proceeded to follow All Elite Wrestling. A recent update on the controversy suggested that "The Boss" wasn't thrilled when WWE told her that The Boss 'n' Hug Connection would be splitting soon.

The heart of the matter
Brad Shephard stated on his Oh You Didn't Know podcast that Sasha Banks was being kept separated from Alexa Bliss, with the two Superstars having real-life heat between them. Go to the 53:38 mark to listen to Brad's comments.
I was told she has to be kept separate from Alexa Bliss for the time being as well. At the time I was also told, she was threatening to walk out at any given moment and most of the women in the locker room at that time believed she was bluffing.
Shephard also said that Vince McMahon has advised backstage officials that they shouldn't pander to Sasha Banks' demands. Slide over to the 54:00 mark to hear the comments that Shephard made regarding Vince's advise.
Vince McMahon told those working as a catalyst between the two (Sasha and Alexa) that while they love and appreciate Sasha, no one is going to kiss her a**. She was promised however that things will get better.
Reportedly, Sasha Banks has been given some time to cool down, and could possibly make her comeback as early as the Money in the Bank PPV.
