According to the Mat Men Pro Wrestling podcast and later confirmed by Pro Wrestling Sheet WWE superstar Sasha Banks will be appearing in the second season of the hit Star Wars series The Mandalorian. The show, which airs on Disney+, tells the story of a lone gunfighter making his way through the galaxy as a Bounty Hunter. The new season is set to air this coming October.
No current reports on how big Banks' role will be in the series, but it does explain her partial absence from WWE television. She recently revealed in an interview on After The Bell that she's been dealing with an ankle injury. She states:
If you guys watched Friday night Smackdown a couple of weeks ago, the evil un-role model, terrible mother Lacey Evans tripped me backstage, and she hurt my ankle. I can barely walk ok. It's terrible. I'm a person that always wants to be 125 percent, and right now, I'm just at 100 percent. You guys just have to wait," Banks said. "It's unacceptable. I'm at 100 percent. I need to be at 120 percent. I'm taking my time so that I can be bigger and better than ever.

The Boss has not wrestled for WWE since the January 3rd edition of SmackDown.
Here is another interesting tidbit we were told by the same person but I can not 100% confirm it.— Mat Men Pro Wrestling Podcast 🎙 (@Matmenpodcast) February 16, 2020
