WWE Star Sasha Banks has been very much active lately on social media keeping her fans updated with peeks into her life outside WWE. The Legit Boss famously walked out of Monday Night RAW alongside Naomi back in May 2022 due to creative differences with Vince McMahon and his management.
Sasha Banks and Naomi were most recently spotted at the Premiere of ‘She-Hulk: Attorney at Law in Califonia donning green and black outfits as a homage to the entire setting and The Hulk Character itself.
With a new leadership ready to take WWE into a whole new and different direction, many new reports suggest that WWE is attempting to reconcile with Sasha Banks and Naomi and bring them back on WWE programming. Their return speculation heightened even more when WWE announced their long-awaited WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships tournament, which was announced by Michael Cole the same week Banks and Naomi walked out of RAW.

The Blueprint is yet to comment on her WWE status for now, but if Sasha does decide to return to professional wrestling, All Elite Wrestling could be a viable and fresh option for The Boss Sasha Banks to explore. Here are the Top 5 Dream matches for Sasha Banks in AEW:
5. Serena Deeb

The Legit Boss has achieved various accolades during her time in the WWE, except for competing in a one-on-one match with a Legendary Superstar unlike her fellow 4 Horsewomen Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch. This omission could be filled in her resume in AEW with Sasha taking on a legend like Serena Deeb. One of the most gifted Female Superstars in the ring, Serena has battled a lot of top Superstars and also worked as a trainer to prepare the next generation of Stars. A match between Banks and Deeb could be one of the greatest wrestling matches ever to happen.

One AEW Superstar has openly discussed about competing against Sasha Banks in the Land of All Elite. During a virtual signing with the Asylum Wrestling Store, Rosa commented on the possibility of Banks heading over to AEW and a potential match with her:
“I mean, of course everybody’s gonna come for whoever’s on top, right? I’m the biggest prey any predator comes after and I’m ready man. I told you, I’m not afraid of nobody. If Sasha wants — if ‘The Boss’ wants some from La Mera Mera, she got it, she got it coming. Hell yeah. That’s how I do.”
The current AEW Women’s World Champion defending her title against a Multi-time champion in Sash Banks inside an AEW ring would be a blockbuster match to watch.
3. Jade Cargill

The leader of the Baddies and current AEW TBS Champion Jade Cargill carved out a path of dominance ever since debuting in AEW with her imposing stature and in-ring acumen. Much like her incredible Wrestlemania 37 match which saw Sasha Banks and Bianca Belair, the first two black women to main event Wrestlemania having a magnitude of high stakes match, a similar scenario could be recreated by inserting Jade Cargill into the picture.
A big fight field of AEW’s pay-per-view could be the perfect venue for this dream match between the dominant Jade Cargill and the crafty Boss Sasha Banks for the AEW TBS Championship.
“📍Orlando 📍A few months ago I spoke with my WhatsApp group. I specifically said ‘I want to be the bridge between US and celebrities..‘I want people to come to class and train and hang with the very people we watch on TV! Orlando, I’m doing just that! This class will be a whole movement. I’ll be teaching class along side @sashabankswwe.. yes you get to train and learn with Mercedes and myself ! Link in Bio let’s get to work !”
2. Paige VanZant

One of the most impressive UFC athletes to step inside a wrestling ring is the upcoming Paige VanZant. Having made a mark in the world of Mixed Martial Arts headlining various UFC cards with top fighters, VanZant shifted to professional wrestling signing with AEW in September 2021
Sasha Banks has experience battling a former UFC Star in Ronda Rousey in the WWE and back in 2016, rumors floated about a possible Banks vs VanZant match at Wrestlemania.
The match could finally take place in AEW with a much high magnitude as both Superstars are far more established now with the possibility of delivering an instant classic bout.
1. Dr Britt Baker, D.M.D

The Role Model and resident dentist of All Elite Wrestling, Dr. Britt Baker D.M.D facing The Boss Sasha Banks can be considered one of the biggest dream matches for the upstart promotion.
Britt Baker has known to be one of the most popular AEW Female Superstars and said herself that she looked up to Sasha Banks during her training days. In an interview with Forbes, Baker was asked about the Sasha-Naomi Walkout and potential match with The Boss:
“Since it’s a pretty hot topic right now, I’m going to say Sasha Banks.…I think she is one of the top draws in all of WWE. She’s such a superstar, she’s such a good wrestler. She’s definitely somebody that I would love to wrestle,”
Sasha Banks vs Dr Britt Baker, D.M.D would be a big dream match for All Elite Wrestling at any day of the week.
