10 Things you need to know about Sasha Banks
Sasha Banks is just 24 years old and already a 2-time WWE Women’s Champion and a former NXT Women’s Champion. She’s also one of the four horsewomen – the foursome who’ve helped bring in the era of women’s wrestling in the WWE. From her battles with Bayley in NXT to her wars with Charlotte on the main roster, Sasha has impressed with every opportunity she’s been given.
Along with her contemporaries, she’s leading the charge of women’s wrestling in the new era. Sasha and Charlotte’s match got some of the biggest reactions on Raw last week and she’s played her part in helping cement the women as top attractions in the WWE and they are no longer a side show.
10: Her cousin is Snoop Dogg
Sasha Banks is the cousin of rapper, Snoop Dogg. Snoop is a WWE fan himself and used to take his young cousin to WWE events and even took her backstage where she met the likes of John Cena. Sasha begged Snoop when she was 16 to take her backstage to Wrestlemania XXIV and he obliged.
Snoop famously walked Sasha down the ramp at Wrestlemania 32 while performing her theme song. Even though Sasha was unsuccessful that night, the image of Snoop accompanying her to the ring for her first Wrestlemania match will live on.
