Former WWE Women’s Champion Sasha Banks recently Sports Illustrated while out recovery from a back injury. She revealed how her early career in Boston got her started in the wrestling business:
“Once I moved to Boston, that’s where everything came full circle for me,” said Banks. “I joined a wrestling school, and it was the same wrestling school I remember emailing when I was twelve and they told me I was too young. Then, there I was at 18, walking through the doors to this fantasy camp and I was the only girl. I walked in and thought, ‘I got this,’ and I got it. They gave me three months of free training, and they helped a little Mercedes KV turn into ‘The Boss’ Sasha Banks. That’s why I love Boston so much, it’s home. I got the phone call for my tryout in Boston. Boston is home, I love it.”
Banks also has high expectations and future goals she wants to achieve:
“I’ve accomplished so many of my dreams already, but main-eventing WrestleMania is a dream,” said Banks. “Also, I want to be on the cover of the 2K game next year–bye bye, Brock. The sky is the limit, and there is no limit to my dreams.”
