Sasha Banks is one of the top female WWE Superstars in the history of the company. Her accolades speak for themselves and she has competed in some of the best matches in the company’s history. It seems WWE wanted her to wrestle like a diva.

Sasha Banks was pulled from the WWE SummerSlam pay-per-view and was absent for a long time. However, she made her shocking return to WWE television at Extreme Rules. Since then she became one of the mainstays of WWE television once again.

While speaking to Kurt Angle on his podcast, Sasha Banks recalled her time in WWE developmental. Banks claimed that the company wanted her to train and wrestle like a diva.

“It was really tough. Still, back then they didn’t want us to train like the men. We were told to train like Divas and we didn’t have any explanation to what that meant. They just came out and said, ‘Hey, no striking, no doing this no doing that.’ We’re like, ‘Okay, but we wanna wrestle. We wanna do it.’


But training was every single day plus live events plus setting up the ring plus going to different towns and putting posters up so people could attend the shows.

It was every single day sacrifice. I think maybe only Sunday I had off and that wasn’t even an off day cause you just had to recover mentally for what the next day was gonna bring.”

Sasha Banks was engaged in a feud with Shotzi Blackheart. It is likely she will be feuding with Charlotte Flair now that WWE Survivor Series is over. We will have to wait and see how their feud will be booked.
