The WWE rumor mill seems to be spinning around The Boss. So, to take the “where there is smoke, there is fire” approach, it appears Sasha Banks is in trouble with WWE management, and here is why.

Popular Yet No Major Pushes?

Sasha Banks is one of the most popular women on the roster today, yet her recent pushes are small compared to those of Charlotte and Asuka. While her wrestling ability is not in question, WWE management is reportedly not that keen on putting her atop the Women’s Division.

The alleged problem with Sasha Banks is her backstage attitude, It appears the WWE is mainly concerned about her attitude towards fans, and this is costing her a more significant push.

Sasha Banks Dealing With Fans

During WrestleMania week, Banks was questioned regarding her attitude towards fans. According to Mike Johnson at PWInsider, these are some of the reasons Sasha’s attitude towards fans could be costing her.

“There certainly have been stories about her with her attitude and her and I talked about that WrestleMania week and she kinda blew it off. In some ways saying that she does not have an attitude with the fans, but has an attitude if you are bothering her in a place where she has not made it publicly known that she would be there then you are out of line.”

My Opinion on the Sasha Banks Situation

Being in the spotlight is not easy. I understand that sometimes you want to be left alone. Still, when you are a WWE superstar, you represent a brand, so there are better ways to deal with fans if you do not want to be bothered by them.

Many WWE superstars have refused to give out autographs or take a picture with fans when they are out. However, most superstars find a polite way to decline, Banks has been known to be quite abrupt and even rude to some fans. As a result, WWE may be less keen on making her a major stary

I believe Sasha is a real talent, but she clearly has an attitude problem. There is something ugly in her personality which peaks out in interviews. She comes over as entitled and arrogant. At the end of the day, if you want to be a WWE superstar, you are going to live some of your life in the spotlight. Playing the “victim” will not do you much good, but finding a better way to deal with it might.

Let’s face it. If you do not like being in the spotlight, why would you choose a career in professional wrestling and the WWE? Yes, everyone can get overwhelmed by too much time in the spotlight, but having that attitude all the time does not do anyone any favors. I would be a real shame if her career got ruined because of her backstage issues. She is a good wrestler, but her attitude towards fans makes me like her less and less.
