“She picked me up, twisted me, and just pulled my shoulder up when I landed at the end. I just felt heat and a rush of flowing water, going down and up my arm.”

Now, usually, when somebody suffers an injury, the first thing they think about is medical attention. However, ‘The Boss’ thought about the upcoming events that she might not be able to take part in if she reveals suffering an injury.

“Instantly I go to the tag team titles and being like, ‘Now, I’m not going to have this match, now I’m not going to be in the Chamber. Am I going to be at WrestleMania? How hurt am I?’

“I’m thinking about the tag team titles. This is what I want. She messed it up. I’m already angry at it as it is. I just let all my emotions just get to me.”

In fact, Banks was so focused on the tag team titles she didn’t tell anyone about it, didn’t take time off, but got her shoulder the medical attention it needed.

“I didn’t say a d*mn thing, I had a Make A Wish the next morning, I couldn’t even move my arm, I had to call Bayley to help me put my clothes on, to straighten my hair, put my eyelashes on. I didn’t want anybody to know.”

Sasha Banks got an MRI and was informed of the separated shoulder. Even then, she didn’t take time off from the ring.
