Sasha Banks Reacts To Returning To The Venue Of The First WWE Women’s Match In UAE


During a recent trip to Abu Dhabi, WWE women’s wrestler Sasha Banks revisited the Zayed Sports City Tennis Stadium to reflect on her historic match that took place one year ago in Abu Dhabi. The match marked the first time women competed in WWE match in the United Arab Emirates. It was also the first time the RAW women’s title was defended in the region. You can check out some highlights of Banks discussing her return to the stadium below:

On how humbling it is to return: “It’s quite humbling to come back. Right now, it looks completely different because it was at night time and there was no tennis court. It doesn’t even feel or look like how it looked like when I was here. Which is kinda crazy. I didn’t even know which way that we came out. I do remember, before I came out I was legit shaking and crying because I was so nervous that I wanted just to make a difference.”

On wanting to make a statement while she was there: “And I wanted to make a statement. It’s kinda humbling to know that I’m back here a year later, but for something completely different, supporting the Special Olympics. So it’s like, I did two meaningful things in this country. So, yeah, it’s really cool. And I can’t believe that I’m back. Life’s really crazy and the universe works in mysterious ways to bring you back to places where I think you’re supposed to be. I’m really happy to be back here.”
