Sasha Banks sees herself headlining WrestleMania once again, and although she also mentions Charlotte and Bayley, women she’s faced before in her career, she also mentions pop superstar, Nicki Minaj, surprisingly.

WWE has made use of celebrities before, and of course that is an understatement. WrestleMania has often been the perfect setting to use celebrities, and with WrestleMania 38 on the horizon, just how possible is this, many are wondering.

She’s no stranger to the main event at WWE’s marquee yearly show, as she faced Bianca Belair on night 1 of WrestleMania last year. As it would turn out, she’s no stranger to large musical celebrities either, as she’s cousins with the one, the only, Snoop Doggy Dogg himself.

Speaking of celebrity, though, she’s pretty much stepping up her own game in that regard, she having landed a role in The Mandalorian, and who knows what’s next for the wrestling and rising entertainment star.


In speaking with Bleacher Report on that experience she said:

“First of all, thanks for trying to get that out, but I’m not on the next season…But it was incredible being on The Mandalorian on Star Wars. To be on a franchise that is so huge and so loved, just look at the reception from fans outside of the WWE Universe. It was the best feeling of all time. The projection of that show was overwhelming. I legit felt like I was in a galaxy so far, far away. I felt like I was on a different planet…

“It was something I will always take with me and I took so much of what I learned from acting with them and being with so many great stars to WWE. It really helped my confidence as well when I came back from doing The Mandalorian two years ago. It was such a learning curve and something I wasn’t expecting, but now I’m in this whole new Hollywood world and it’s going amazingly. I’m so excited for the fans, and I can’t wait for my fans to see what’s next.”

Banks made this statement regarding the aforementioned WrestleMania match, and a bold one it is. She said:

“I see myself main-eventing WrestleMania either against Nicki Minaj, Charlotte Flair or Bayley…Those are my top three picks. If I predicted that one last year, I feel like any of those are a WrestleMania-caliber match.”

WrestleMania 38 is slated to go down in Arlington, Texas at at AT&T Stadium. If this match will happen, it would need some serious build for sure, which it looks like WWE might be able to manage for sure. Of course this remains to be seen.
