WWE News: Sasha Banks has a tearful moment with WWE legend
What's the story?
WWE Superstar Sasha Banks has made no bones about the fact that Eddie Guerrero was a massive influence on her career. Right before these two women created history by becoming a part of the first ever Women's Royal Rumble match, Sasha Banks and Vickie Guerrero caught up for a special moment.
Both of the women remembered Eddie Guerrero and the massive legacy that he has left behind. Vickie Guerrero thanked Sasha Banks for representing Guerrero's influence in such a special way.
In case you didn't know...
Eddie Guerrero was once a part of WCW's Cruiserweight Division, but then made an even bigger impact when he moved to WWE as part of the Radicalz thereafter.
Eddie Guerrero passed away in the year 2005 due to acute heart failure, and countless fans including Sasha Banks mourned the loss to the wrestling world.
He was married to Vickie Guerrero for fifteen years, and even though she's married to someone right now, she still holds the utmost fondness for her late husband.
The heart of the matter
Vickie Guerrero shed tears as she spoke about Sasha Banks during the video:
To have my husband be such an influence on her, to help her with her career and motivate her to be the talented superstar that she is...to see you have Eddie's flames on and to show how much you love him meant the world to us.
Sasha Banks could not hold the tears back either, as she replied:
Wrestling is the only thing I've ever loved. I really feel like wrestling saved my life. But Eddie was the first person I ever saw on TV and I was instantly hooked and I knew right when I saw him, that I wanted to do exactly what he did.
Sasha Banks has already made so much history. Will she be part of the first ever Elimination Chamber match as well? Stay tuned to Sportskeeda Wrestling to find out, folks.
What a great moment, right? Videos like these are the reason we love professional wrestling so very much.
I'm a big Sasha Banks fan and I know how special this moment was for her, so I'm glad she got to do this.
