Sasha Banks' current injury is 'significant,' according to report

There's still hope that she could be back in time for SummerSlam, but she's out for the time being.

On Sunday, Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter confirmed reports that Sasha Banks suffered a head injury, specifying that she was kneed in the head by a referee during a six-person tag team match in Charlottesville, Virginia on May 15.

During Monday's episode of Wrestling Observer Radio, Meltzer spoke more at length about the injury, saying that it might even be putting WWE's SummerSlam plans in jeopardy.

"She's hurt. It's a significant thing. As far as how long ... the [injury] they were keeping secret before was a knee [injury]. WWE ... They'll tell you some injuries and then others, they don't want you to know. That's the deal.

"But there's no way of knowing right now what her status is. Obviously, Charlotte and Sasha were supposed to wrestle in Brooklyn for SummerSlam this year. It's months away, so there's still a very good chance that that's going to happen. But you just never know with a concussion."

The "knee injury" that Meltzer was alluding to was one that happened back in January that Sasha repeatedly denied on social media.

Here's hoping that Sasha is able to return to action soon and that we'll still get that great Sasha/Charlotte feud we've all been dying for since both women were called up to the main roster last year.
