So, who might Sasha pick? There are a few options, each making sense to some degree or other. Let’s pick through a few of them, shall we?
She’s the most popular choice, but Ms. Banks has already said no dice. Now, of course, that could just be intentionally throwing people off the right track, but I think this one is truth. Bayley would be awesome, and it would be a cool way for her to debut, having not been drafted. But she could overshadow Sasha, and by all accounts, Sasha is next in line…so I don’t see Banks’ partner being Bayley at this point, just because WWE won’t want to diminish her spotlight in any way.
2. Nikki Bella
She’s not retired yet. She’s posting cryptic messages on social media. And she certainly has a bone to pick with Charlotte. So this one seems like a good fit, plus she’d likely be a popular surprise pick. Not the most popular, as I think that would be Bayley, but I think if Nikki’s music hit, I think it would get a decent enough pop. Will she be? I’d say the odds are decent here.
Another one ready to return, and posting cryptic messages on social media. I think this one would be¬† a most interesting pairing, though I think Naomi would be just as likely to want to attack Sasha as to tag with her. Naomi might not want to share the spotlight, or appear to be playing second fiddle…but at the same point in time, it’s a match against the Women’s Champion, so that won’t be overlooked. I think it’s probably between Nikki and Naomi at this point.
4. The Wildcard
Only because this one catches all others. I think there’s a chance that Sasha goes and gets someone like Eva, or even recruits Nia Jax for a night (wouldn’t that be interesting). But I don’t think it’ll be a massive stunner. If Natty hadn’t snapped and gone heel, she would have been the easiest choice, but now we get someone different.
I will say this. It’s kind of cool to see the Women’s division in a place where a returning wrestler gets buzz like this. It used to be we only saw this for the men, so seeing this for the ladies is pretty cool.
WNZ readers, who are you expecting to join Sasha on Sunday?
