E&C’s Pod of Awesomeness Recap w/ Sasha Banks – Travelling & Tagging With Bayley, Tag Titles, Challenging Ronda Rousey, More!
Edge and Christian welcome Sasha Banks to the show.
Edge asks Banks what keeps her hungry at this point in her career. She points out that the continuing evolution of the women’s division is very important to her. It’s becoming normal now for women to main event RAW and Smackdown as well as house shows, which she never thought would happen, and things just continue to improve for the women.
Banks notes that you have to keep working to be happy, and if you’re not happy you have to let someone know. She’s not content with mediocrity. Edge says he loves that attitude, but sometimes that can rub people the wrong way.
Banks informs that she’s been a fan of wrestling since the age of 10, and through her family connection with Snoop Dogg she was able to go backstage with him at WrestleMania 24. She was very overwhelmed at the time, so it’s amazing that all these years later she’s a performer in the company.
Banks informs that her “Boss” nickname came from her hearing everyone call Snoop Dogg “Boss” over the years. She notes that Dusty Rhodes played a big role in helping her develop that character in NXT and now she’s very comfortable in that role.
Banks talks about her classic NXT Takeover match with Bayley. She points out that it was one of her favourite matches of her career thus far. The underdog story that they told with Bayley really had fans invested and the result was a magical match.
