Sasha Banks: "I Want To Main Event WrestleMania"

Posted By: Ben Jordan Kerin on Jun 12, 2017

Sasha Banks: "I Want To  Main Event WrestleMania"

WNS Podcast hosted an interview with WWE Superstar Sasha Banks in which she discussed a number of topics including her chemistry with Bayley, thoughts before going into the first ever women's Hell In A Cell match and her desire to main event WrestleMania in the future.

Below are the highlights:

1. ON THE CHEMISTRY SHE HAD WITH BAYLEY THAT MADE THEIR MATCHES SPECIAL

It was a love/hate relationship. We have so much in common. We love this business so much and you know talking to her more, her dream was to be a wrestler when she was 10. My dream was to be a wrestler when I was 10. I wanted to change the definition of what it was to be a woman in WWE and she had the exact same feelings. So, it was just that mutual love for this knowing that we always wanted to steal the show. And getting the opportunity at NXT Brooklyn and just hearing that crowd. We tore the house down. Honestly, I can't wait to do it again. I can't wait to tie up with her again. But, that's all in due time. Ever since then, from that very moment the women's revolution has just been taking over. And from there I got to main event a WWE pay per view with Charlotte at Hell In A Cell. The first ever woman's match in hell in a cell and it's been just such a whirlwind of excitement. It's so crazy.

2. HER THOUGHTS ON MINUTES BEFORE THE HELL IN A CELL MATCH

First of all, I came out in an SUV I wasn't really walking because I'm The Boss you know what I'm saying? It was in my hometown and I remember being like "holy crap man! We are making history" It's moments like that where you just have to stand still and look around. We've come such a long way for the women and the men. But even then, getting to be part of Wrestlemania and having these great matches. The Smackdown women are going to be competing in the first ever women's Money In The Bank. Of course I'm really jealous but I'm so happy to see where this Women's division has taken it and grown. It's so incredible.

3. ON ANY ADVICE SHE HAS FOR FANS WHO WANT TO FOLLOW I. HER FOOTSTEPS

First of all it makes me feel super old. It's so crazy seeing little girls and even guys come up to me and say "I want to be a wrestler because of you". It makes my heart so happy and it gives me goosebumps. Because I know that feeling of when I was a little girl and I looked up to my favourite wrestlers knowing ai wanted to be in their footsteps. And now knowing little girls and guys want to be in my footsteps. It's really surreal. It's an honour. Being a role model is legit #1 for me. I just want to make little girls proud and know if they have a dream they can do it as long as they  put their heart, their passion and everything into it they can accomplish anything.

4. ON HER TRANSITION FROM NXT TO THE MAIN ROSTER

For me, we did TV at Full Sail in Orlando and it would almost be the same kind of fans coming every single month we would tape it. But Raw is live. We do this legit. Every single week it's live from a different state and it's a different crowd every week and you just don't know what to expect. You just kind of have to change with the crowd. If they're feeling one way,you have to try and make them fee another. It was definitely changing that and not having TV takings to being live every single week. And the travel schedule is intense. But if this is your passion, it's easy. We have the greatest times and the greatest fans. They're so passionate and loyal and it's so much fun.

5. ON ANYONE HELPING HER SINCE MAKING THE TRANSITION TO THE MAIN ROSTER

Nope. Honestly, when I first got called up, I was so nervous and the people that really looked after me was The New Day. And I was fortunate enough to be paired up with two amazing, incredible women in Tamina and Naomi and they just took care of me so much. It was those girls and New Day that kept me going. They told me their struggles, their highs, their lows and we were all in it together. Those are my people right there. That's my family. You have to create a bond with these people because we see these people more than we see our own family. I see my mom, legit, like twice a year. I see these guys every single week. Four times a week. You just have to create that bond. We fight, we argue but we love each other the most. They've become my siblings.

 6. ON BEING A FAN OF OTHER ANIMES BESIDES SAILOR MOON

So, Sailor Moon is my number one. I've watched that since I was a little girl and because I didn't understand time when I was really young, it used to be on at 6 in the morning so I would stay up all night thinking it would be on at night because it was still dark outside. So, I always watched Sailor Moon. I love Death Knell. That's one of my favourite animes of all time. Monsters, Soul Rumble, I could just go on and on I love anime.

7. THOUGHTS ON FANS DRESSING UP LIKE HER

It really makes me know that I've made it. The fact that people would take the time out to buy my stuff and make costumes to dress up like me. It's the coolest thing I've seen. We come to these WWE shows I see it all the time. Or I go to autograph signings. Seeing little girls wear my jewelry it's the best feeling in the world.

8. THOUGHTS ON THE UPCOMING MAE YOUNG SPECIAL

Going down to Brooklyn, New York and work with Amazing Red. His students are incredible. There's this woman named Sonya Strong and she loves this so much and I love her passion for and so I really want to try and push her in this women's classic. I think this is a great opportunity for women all over the world. And finding out we were going to have our own tournament after seeing these guys get it year after year. The women deserve it too. I think it's going to be the best tournament out of all of them we've had so far and I can't wait to go down and support them.

 9. FEELINGS KNOWING SHE IS PART OF THIS WOMENS REVOLUTION

Women are taking over the world right now and it's such an honour to be part of it. I always knew I wanted to change the definition of what it was to be a diva and now we're not divas anymore. We're superstars because we are equal and can do it just like the men. We can main event like them, we can take over Pay per views. We can just chill out and show we are better than all of them. It's a huge honour and we still have a lot more to do. A lot to overcome but we are in the right footsteps and we're just going to keep on going up.

10. ON WHAT HER NEXT BIG CHALLENGE WILL BE

I want to main event Wrestlemania. That's the number one goal. It's crazy knowing I've only been on the main roster for 2 years and I've done so much, accomplished so many things, done so many first time evers. It gives me goosebumps thinking I've done so much and everything I've ever dreamt up I've accomplished. But main eventing Wrestlemania is the number one goal right now.

11. HER FAVOURITE MATCH

Any Eddie Guerrero match is my favourite. I loved Eddie Guerrero vs Rey Mysterious from Wrestlemania 21 and Halloween Havoc. Shawn Michaels vs Undertaker from Wrestlemania (their first one). Of course myself vs Bayley from NXT Takeover Brooklyn.
