Former RAW Women’s Champion Sasha Banks recently did an interview for the ‘Smashing Glass Ceilings: The Women of WWE’ Channel 4 documentary in the UK. The interview was conducted by the host of the ‘Gorilla Position’ podcast, James Delow. Here are the highlights:
On negative fan reactions:
“Ultimately their opinion does not affect me because regardless [of what it is], they’re talking about me. Love me or hate me, you’re talking about me. You’re invested in me, that’s why you’re mentioning my name. You’re going to see the match regardless. Whether you’re for it or against it, you’re watching it and you’re talking about it.”
On her on-screen persona:
“When the camera is on I am 100 per cent this larger than life character. But when I come home I am this private, shy girl who feels like she is getting to live her dream every day. Sasha on TV is everything I wish I could be in normal life – being her has actually helped me and given me the confidence to stand up for myself.”
On her dream goal:
“I am making it happen for myself and doing everything I have ever set my mind on – but I want more. Wrestling in Japan is one thing but main-eventing WrestleMania is the dream goal.”
