During the WWE 2K18 event in New York City for SummerSlam weekend, Scott Fishman of the Miami Herald caught up with former four-time RAW Women’s Champion Sasha Banks and her cousin; legendary hip-hop artist Snoop Dogg. Banks & Snoop Dogg discussed their love for the sport of pro-wrestling and how it brought the two of them closer together.
Here are a few of the highlights:
Sasha Banks: “We didn’t grow up watching wrestling together, but we grew up watching wrestling, so it’s really cool. I think that is where our bond came from. I remember being a little girl and asking: ‘Can you please take me to all the wrestling shows.’ I remember the biggest one was that WrestleMania 24 when he got to do the Playboy Bunny match. That was Ric Flair’s last match that night also. So being in that whole environment, I thought it was so cool. I also said to myself: ‘I’m going to be here one day’, then I got to do this past WrestleMania in Orlando, it was a dream come true.”
Snoop Dogg: “I don’t have any advice for her. She is a natural born star from the moment she laid her eyes on this sport. Her training to become a wrestler, to become great, she knew it, it was in her head. Some people are born with it, that is called the ‘It’ factor. She got that ‘It’ factor. The one piece of advice I can give her is to get out of the way and let her do what she do. I will be supportive of her and be there if she ever needs me.”
“I wear the [WWE Hall of Fame] ring all the time. I’m honored to be a part of the WWE Hall of Fame. I was a fan back in the day, so to see my little cousin watch it and love it and then become a part of it, it’s a dream come true. You can’t lose, thanks Vince. I think I may become Sasha’s manager because she doesn’t have a manager right now. I think I would do a good job.”
