5 Things you didn't know about Sasha Banks
- Sasha Banks is nothing like the heel character she portrays on WWE Television.
Sasha Banks is one of the best wrestlers in all of WWE. Despite being fairly young, she's broken barriers and positively impacted WWE's Women's Division. Banks deserves to be credited for it, and when all is said and done, she will likely be a Hall of Famer.
Banks returned to WWE after a four-month hiatus to feud with Becky Lynch. Many expected her to come out on top, but she failed to win the RAW Women's Championship. Currently, Banks is on SmackDown after being drafted to the Blue brand during the recent WWE Draft. Although, she doesn't have any feud set in stone at the moment, this change in scenery should help her get involved in engaging storylines.
Sasha Banks is not only a great wrestler, but also an inspiring person behind the scenes. Despite going through many hardships in life, she's reached the top and sets an example for fans worldwide. With all that stated, let's look at five things you didn't know about Sasha Banks.
#5. She feared her father
During an interview on the Making Their Way To The Ring podcast, Sasha Banks opened up about her childhood. While growing up, she feared her father, who she claims was abusive to her mother. By the time she turned two, her father had abandoned the family and moved to Oregon to start a new life. Unable to make ends meet, Banks, her mother, and brother traveled across the US in search of a better life.
When she was 11 or 12, her mom relocated the family to Oregon to try to get help from her husband. Sasha's dad, who owned a restaurant and a record label, never helped them, despite having the money to be able to do so. She says she was miserable and depressed at that time. Finally, they packed and left Oregon in search of a new school.
