Sasha Banks recently spoke with Rolling Stone, here are the highlights…
On Stealing The Show at WrestleMania: [Laughs] Have you see any of my matches boo-boo? I always steal the show, so it’s nothing new for me. I actually look at the card and I go, “Wow, yes, I’m definitely gonna steal the show.” I think this match is gonna open the doors for the women of WWE. This is a huge opportunity to show that not only can we hang with the boys, we can be better than the boys. I always want to have people talk about my matches. With this, I don’t add extra pressure on myself, but for sure, I know we can do it.
With WWE’s Injury Problem, Should The Company Explore Inter-Gender Angles?:I definitely agree with that. I just think it takes time. I went from two-minute matches when I started with NXT to eight, to 10, to 12. I definitely think after this match at WrestleMania, we’re gonna be given more opportunities like that. Not only will we show it, we’re gonna demand it.
On WWE Getting Behind The Sasha Banks Persona: It is, but it was all me to be honest. When I was in NXT, I was doing nothing and like, “What am I doing with my life?” So the Boss came out, and I [realized] I need to show people why I’m the best. And now that I see I have action figures – and hopefully next year I’m on the WWE [2K17] game – and all this stuff, it’s surreal. When you have little girls bringing you your action figures for you to sign, it’s like, “Wow, things are happening and dreams do come true.”
Why Haven’t We Seen Snoop Dogg Performer Her Entrance?: [Laughs] Maybe you should watch WrestleMania and you might see it, you never know! I don’t need someone to walk me to the ring every week and hold my hand like Charlotte does, but Snoop can make an appearance once in a while. Some people need their daddy to hold their hand and walk them down to the ring, which is fine. Some people need fire to have an entrance, which is OK. But I’m a Boss. I don’t need that stuff.
