WWE star Sasha Banks was recently a guest on “WWE After The Bell” to talk about several professional wrestling topics.
Here are the highlights:
Her ankle injury:
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. 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.
Missing the Royal Rumble:
Honestly, I wasn’t supposed to be in it anyway because I’m a leader. I want to give girls other opportunities. I didn’t want to win that match because I didn’t want to choose my best friend nor did I want to choose Becky Lynch because I don’t want to go to RAW. So I wasn’t going to be in the Royal Rumble regardless, and Bayley asked me to not come out for the match because she wanted to show people that she didn’t need my help. So I respect her. We are role models and leaders for a reason, and another girl had an opportunity because I wasn’t in it. So it’s so great to see. I’m so blessed. I’m so awesome. I’m amazing.
