WWE News: Sasha Banks - "I am the Beyoncé of the WWE"
Sasha Banks is the current and two-time Raw Women’s Champion. She was recently interviewed by David Dennis Jr. of The Undefeated regarding her career, among other things. When asked by Dennis Jr. about being compared to pop star sensation Beyoncé, The Boss said the following:
“I am the Beyoncé of the WWE. Beyoncé is the greatest, so I am the greatest. Not only in the Women’s division, I’m trying to show the guys I’m better than them. I can close out RAW every week if you give me the opportunity. I want to be the face of the women’s division and I will be.”
This was fresh on the heels of her match with Charlotte 3 weeks ago, where the two main-evented Raw in a Raw Women's Championship match which saw Sasha Banks become a two-time Women's Champion.
Previously, she had won the championship on the first Raw after the draft, but unfortunately dropped it just about 27 days later at Summerslam due to some nagging injuries to the back and neck.
Sasha came back sooner than expected, and in a little over a month, won the title back from Charlotte. During the same interview, she addressed the fact that she was a heel in NXT, and when asked about how she had felt being a babyface on the main roster, she said “It’s an adjustment” and that she finds it hard to believe that the fans like her now.
She also addressed the injury at the end of August where she came back far sooner than expected. The Boss was pulled from all events for a full month. She said that while many people thought it was serious, she wouldn’t have come back as fast as she did if that were the case.
As mentioned earlier, Sasha Banks is set to make more history with Charlotte this Sunday when they become the first females to enter the demonic structure that is Hell In A Cell. It is unknown whether they will be the last match to close the show, but the Pay-Per-View itself is being advertised as having a “Triple Main Event”(referring to the three Hell In A Cell matches).
Many are under the impression that the women should headline the PPV, but decisions of what order it goes in can change any time.
