Sasha Banks' Royal Rumble Spot Given To Kelly Kelly, Beth Phoenix Busted Open

Sasha Banks' Royal Rumble Spot Given To Kelly Kelly, Beth Phoenix Busted Open
- Beth Phoenix made her surprise ring return during Sunday's 30-Woman Royal Rumble Match. Beth entered at #19 and was the 28th elimination, tossed out by the dominant Shayna Baszler.

Beth was busted open on the back of her head early in the match, but WWE has not announced an official injury update as of this writing. Phoenix kept wrestling for several more minutes as the blood started to turn her hair red. It looked like the injury came after Phoenix took a forearm shot in the corner from another dominant competitor, Bianca Belair, and then sold it or took it too hard, going back into the ring post.

- Sasha Banks was scheduled to compete in the 30-Woman Royal Rumble match at the pay-per-view from Minute Maid Park in Houston, Texas.

There's no word yet on why Banks did not wrestle or appear, but there are rumors on her being injured after the cancellation of her recent TV matches with Lacey Evans.

Fightful Select reports that they have confirmed with two sources that Sasha Banks is not medically cleared to compete. She actually hasn’t wrestled since January 3rd.

Banks, who turned 28 on Sunday, was listed as a Rumble competitor internally over the weekend, according to PWInsider. Banks' Rumble spot reportedly went to Kelly Kelly.
