The Whig recently released some highlights from a media conference with WWE women’s champion Sasha Banks. Below are some highlights.
Banks on the Divas Revolution: “I’ve wanted to change the whole division (since I was younger). I didn’t want to walk into the WWE being a diva and being someone that you see just doing bikini matches and just play second fiddle to the guys. I wanted to stand out and be the best and have people tune into Monday Night Raw and tune into SmackDown to see what Sasha Banks can do. And hopefully I am doing that and hopefully people are getting excited to see women’s wrestling. It was a struggle at first when we got brought up (to Raw). This Divas Revolution didn’t have that great, great start that I wanted (it) to, but I knew with time that we would get it to where we wanted to be.”
Banks’ thoughts on Stephanie McMahon: “She is a huge role model not just for girls outside of WWE, but for us. She is so strong in the way that she carries herself. Any time she’s backstage, she’ll talk to us, she’ll give us advice, she always gives me a huge when I see her. I think little things like that, when a boss — she is a boss, just like me — that she actually cares about what we’re doing and I think that’s so special. She is absolutely incredible. I look up to her because she is so strong and so powerful in the way that she conducts herself. I think that’s how all women should be in the WWE. She’s professional to a tee. I have so many good things to say about her.”
