Sasha Banks recently took part in an interview with CBS Sports’ In This Corner’ podcast to discuss rumors of backstage heat and a possible heel turn. Below are the highlights:
On Rumors of Having Backstage Heat:
“It’s whatever you guys want to believe. You guys can believe I’m a good guy or bad guy, but at the end of the day I’m still Sasha Banks. I read a lot of that stuff and it makes me laugh, so it entertains me, and obviously entertains you guys. To me it doesn’t matter as long as you respect my work and want to see Sasha every week, that’s what I’m going to do.”
On a Heel Turn:
"I hear that all the time, and it’s been over three years, and it’s not up to me. It’s up to the fans, they’re the one who choose. So, if they boo me, that’s when I become a bad guy. Right now they’re cheering because, I mean, look at me, I’m cute. I’m the best.”
On Being Underutilized:
“Of course. I feel like I go out there every single week and give it 110-percent,” Sasha responded. “Most recently, I talked to one of my good friends, Mark Sherman, and he told me ‘as long as you work hard, you can’t be unhappy with yourself’ and that’s what I do every single week. Whether they want to push me or not, I’m always going to give it 110-percent.” “I’m honestly living my dream every single day, so there’s not a lot that I can be mad at,” she said.
