According to a report from the Twitter account @BlackMaskofPW (via FightFans), Sasha Banks allegedly made a promise to WWE. The superstar, who is currently free to sign with any wrestling organization after her stint in Japan, supposedly assured the WWE of her return following her NJPW run.​

The details of the promise are not to be taken lightly. If Sasha were to sign with any organization other than WWE, it would apparently be considered a "betrayal of trust." Both parties had reportedly agreed that she would "return to WWE after she had completed her run in NJPW​."

Such a promise, if true, holds significant implications for both Sasha Banks and the WWE. The return of Mercedes Mone, a prominent and popular figure in the wrestling world, to WWE would be a considerable boost to the organization. Mainly as it would attract scores of fans and potentially alter the dynamics of the women's division.

However, it's important to remember that at this stage, this information remains unconfirmed and should be treated as speculation. The wrestling world is no stranger to false rumors and misleading reports, and this could very well be another instance of unfounded gossip​.
