Sasha Banks reportedly won’t be alone heading into NJPW’s Wrestle Kingdom 17

According to a new report by PWInsider, Trinity “Naomi” Fatu is currently scheduled to be in Japan with Sasha Banks (Mercedes Vernado). Banks is set to appear at this week’s NJPW’s Wrestle Kingdom 17. NJPW sources would not confirm to PWInsider they are bringing Naomi for the January 4 show and “intimated” she would be there “on her own accord”, thus giving the impression that Fatu is simply traveling to Japan only as a support to Banks and will not appear publicly.

As of this writing, Banks and Naomi have not been listed on WWE’s internal roster for some time. However, both are still currently listed on the active roster on WWE’s website. Banks and Namoi walked out of the May 16, 2022 episode of WWE Raw in Norfolk, Virginia due to creative differences. WWE then stripped Banks and Naomi of the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships, which they held at the time.
