During WWE’s inaugural “For Your Consideration” Emmy event at the Saban Media Center in North Hollywood, California this past Wednesday, WWE RAW Superstar Sasha Banks was interviewed by Denise Salcedo of Red Carpet Report. There, the Superstar talked about her changing hair color, firsts for her in WWE, who she wants to face in the company and what fans can expect from her at Money In The Bank.
Banks first comments on her changing hair color over the years, explaining how the change came about in the first place.
“Ever since I was little, I wanted different hair colors, but my mom said I couldn’t. So when I was old enough to not listen to my mom, which you should always do though, I decided to change it. I went from a burgundy to a pink, to light purple to dark purple now. I have a bit of blue in, so maybe I might switch it up soon, but who knows? At this time being, I’m good with purple. I feel like Barney, and I love Barney.”
Salcedo asks Banks what her favorite firsts are, given her extensive history with them in WWE.
“That’s so hard to answer because I would never even think- It was only a dream that I would be a part of all these first-time evers. So, the first-ever woman to main event a pay-per-view, that could be up there. Being a part of WrestleMania 32 and having my cousin Snoop Dogg walk me down the aisle. That’s pretty cool. There’s so many, I can’t just name one, because I feel like all of them kind of helped me grow and helped me understand that this dream can be so much bigger and that you can really accomplish your dreams if you put your effort and hard work and all your passion. So, I can’t just choose one. In two weeks I’m gonna be part of a Ladder match, which is a dream come true. So, I don’t know. It’s so crazy.”
Ahead of the second women’s Money In The Bank Ladder match on pay-per-view television, Banks gave an insight into what fans can expect from her in the packed match-up.
“You can expect me to do some crazy things. I keep on dreaming about this match. I keep seeing myself diving off ladders and whatever. But, at the end of the day, the goal is to get up that ladder and grab that briefcase. So that’s the number one goal. That’s what you can expect, for me to win. I’m really excited because I feel like I’m a kid [again]. I remember watching Shawn Michaels in ladder matches and now to be a part of it as a woman, it feels really amazing.”
Finally, Banks comments on which Superstars in WWE she wants to work with.
“That’s hard, because, with NXT, we have so many women all over the world that I haven’t got to be in the ring with yet. I feel like, on RAW and SmackDown, I got to wrestle quite a few. Trying to think who I’ve not been in the ring with yet. I kinda feel like I’ve been with a lot, but I feel like I haven’t had that great singles match with Naomi yet because she is on SmackDown Live. Who else would I want? Natalya. I don’t feel like I’ve had a good one-on-one, singles with her. So, with all due time, I’ll wrestle them all. I plan to be here for a very long time.”
