Mercedes Mone, formerly known as Sasha Banks in WWE, carved a significant legacy by winning every available title during her time in the company. Despite her departure, she has recently acknowledged that Sasha Banks is considered a legend in the wrestling world.

Mercedes Mone notably walked out of WWE in May 2022, alongside Naomi. Her departure was reportedly attributed to creative frustrations and concerns about her position within the women’s division.

During an appearance on the Kick Rocks podcast, Mercedes Mone, formerly Sasha Banks, expressed her admiration for the character. Mone referred to Sasha Banks as a legend, an icon, and a powerhouse who stands up for her beliefs.

Mone emphasized Banks’ role as a “legit boss” both inside and outside the ring, highlighting her dedication and willingness to give her all. Mone commended Banks for having a heart full of gold and reflected on her own excitement about what she, as Mercedes Mone, can achieve in her career.


“A legend. An icon. A powerhouse. Someone who stands up for what she believes in. Is a legit boss. They got that trademark for a good reason. I played that role really good. A legit boss, inside and outside the ring, and will lay it all on the line. She has a heart full of gold. Sasha Banks, what a career. What an amazing career. The thing about that, it makes me even more excited to see what Mercedes Mone can do.”

Mercedes Mone also vows to return to WWE one day. Nevertheless, we will have to wait and see when she will return to WWE, as fans are more focused on her impending AEW debut at Big Business on March 13th.
