Sasha Banks recently spoke with The Undefeated about her career. Here are the highlights.
On being compared to Beyonce: “Oh, hell yeah, you’re right. I am the Beyoncé of the WWE. I am. The Beyoncé of the WWE. Beyoncé is the greatest, so I am the greatest. Not only in the Women’s division, I’m trying to show the guys I’m better than them. I can close out RAW every week if you give me the opportunity. I want to be the face of the women’s division and I will be.”
On going from a heel to a babyface: “It’s an adjustment,” she said. “It’s hard for me to believe that fans like me now. I think it started from fans respecting my matches. And when I wasn’t on TV, they wanted to see me. But I’m happy. I can do [wrestling’s term for “good guys”] baby face, I can do it all.”
On her injury af WWE SummerSlam in August: “S— happens,” she said. “People thought I had a serious neck injury after Summerslam. If it was that serious, would I have come back in a few weeks? No. I get more injured wearing high heels to the arena than wrestling.”
