Sasha Banks’ recent return made Michael Cole shout: “IT’S BOSS TIME” when her music hit, despite Banks’ former ally Bayley giving Cole such a hard time. She cemented herself as a future WWE Hall Of Famer thanks to the historic matches she has been part of and Banks is not shy talking about it.
Sasha Banks also has a lot of respect for her peers who continue to hone their craft and that is especially true for Roman Reigns.
While speaking to Rasslin’ with Brandon F. Walker, Sasha Banks talked about the upcoming match between Roman Reigns and John Cena. Banks stated that Roman Reigns is on a whole different level compared to other pro wrestlers. Apparently, her money is on The Tribal Chief to pull down the W in Allegiant Stadium.
“Well the feeling is it’s great to have someone like John Cena back. What a legend. What a freakin legend. Just someone that’s lending their name to the WWE history. He’s just great. At the house shows I’m watching him and you look around and you see the fans. Little kids that have probably never seen John Cena because he’s been gone for the last five, six years. But they still know who he is and they’re still so entranced with his work and what he does.”
“And Roman Reigns? He’s on a whole different level. He’s on a whole different game with having Paul Heyman and having the Bloodline by his side. He’s hungry to prove that he is the top dog in this business. So I think that match is definitely one to watch. But it’s definitely not going to be better than Bianca vs. Sasha Banks.”
Roman Reigns is set to defend his WWE Universal Championship against John Cena at the WWE SummerSlam pay-per-view on August 21. We will have to wait and see if he will be able to retain his title or not.
Banks obviously acknowledges The Tribal Chief, but the real question is whether John Cena will do the same on August 21st.
