Sasha Banks hasn’t wrestled since May, when she and Naomi, the reigning WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions at the time, left the company. Banks was spotted training in Mexico in November as she was seen with Juventud Guerrera, Samuray Del Sol, and others. That experience was a very rewarding one for The Boss.
Sasha Banks highlighted her experience training in Mexico while taking part in an Instagram Live charity stream for Family Giving Tree with Bayley. She confessed that she misses Mexico and thinks about it every day. Sasha saw living in another country as a tremendously honorable feat.
I miss Mexico so much. I think about it every single day. What a huge crazy honor to live in a different country, let alone Mexico. Just to go out there to train lucha libre with these top legends that I grew up watching, whether it was Ricky Marvin, The Juice Juventud, Skayde, I have been such a fan of his work. The way that he teaches, he taught a lot of CHIKARA Pro guys. Claudio (Castagnoli), Drew Gulak. I’m a huge fan of Claudio’s work. I wanted to get my basing down, my rolls down, so I found him at the gym and freaked out like a fan. ‘You’re here. You’re actually here. I’ve been DMing you for years, trying to find an email, trying to go to a seminar in the United States.’ There I was in Mexico, training with him. Craziest timing, so meant to be. Trained with five different people whether it was Ricky Marvin, The Juice [Juventud], Mamba, Skayda, Mr. Iguana. There was so much. I miss it daily. I’m homesick from Mexico because I belong there.
Bayley said she liked training in Mexico because “when they tell you you’re doing something wrong, they make fun of you, but in a good way.” Skayde, she alleged, continued hitting her over the head on the last day of training because she kept messing up spots.
On the last day of training, Skayde kept hitting me over the head because I kept messing up all the spots. ‘Nooo.’ He called me ‘El Stupida.’ I was like, ‘I’m gonna cry. What the hell.’ I was doing two a days, training in the morning, training at night. Everything is on the other side. He is so ‘zippity doo da’ and I’m like, ‘I didn’t understand.’ [claps heads on head] ‘El stupida
