New Sasha Banks and Wrestle Kingdom Behind-the-Scenes Information

Mercedes Varnado (WWE's Sasha Banks) is expected to arrive in Japan on Wednesday, December 21, ahead of her scheduled appearance at NJPW's Wrestle Kingdom 17 on January 4.

As per NJPW sources, the veteran wrestler is currently heading to Japan and will spend a couple of weeks there in preparation for the promotion's biggest show of the year at the Tokyo Dome.

The report went on to say that "Varnado is expected to at least make a cameo" at Wrestle Kingdom 17, but it didn't say whether she was going to wrestle or get physical in any way.

Sources previously stated that Varnado was not simply attending the event as a spectator but was brought in by NJPW.

Fans were left wondering if the recent professional relationship between WWE & NJPW could have enabled Varnado's cameo at Wrestle Kingdom 17, despite multiple reports saying Varnado was done with WWE

It's important to note, however, that Varnado's WWE.com profile page has yet to be moved to the alumni section, as is customary when a superstar leaves the company.

Varnado fueled the rumour mill earlier this week by posting a GIF of Ric Flair from his time as NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion, which a few fans misinterpreted as Varnado desiring to be a travelling champion appearing in numerous promotions.
