Sasha started her training as a professional wrestler back in 2008. She performed for Chaotic Wrestling and debuted in an inter-gender tag team match. The ride was long and hard for her as she continued to lose all her initial matches, with a WWE run seeming very far. However, she exceeded all expectations. Her immaculate in-ring skills, along with her infectious energy and fire-spitting promise, quickly made her a valuable commodity. She even won the Chaotic Wrestling Women's Championship.
In 2011, NXT, the developmental brand of WWE, was looking to rebuild itself from scratch with some tough wrestlers and signed Sasha Banks. Her first-ever WWE match was against fan-favorite Paige. Even though she lost, she captured the attention of the fans. Her NXT run coincided with a never-before-seen elevation of women's wrestling in WWE. Many credit her along with Charlotte Flair, Bayley, and Becky Lynch for ushering in the women's revolution.
Sasha had a storied rivalry with Charlotte Flair going from best friends to worst enemies. She defeated Flair to become the NXT Women's Champion, immediately making clear that Triple H had big plans for her career. Her "The Boss" persona resonated with the fans and represented the modern female professional wrestler.
When Sasha finally left NXT, she did it in the best fashion possible. She lost to Bayley in a match that many call the best women's wrestling match in WWE history. After dropping the NXT Championship, she made her main roster debut on Raw as part of a stable with Tamina and Naomi.
She was part of the batch of wrestlers introduced by Stephanie McMahon, who revolutionized main-roster wrestling. Sasha would continue her fine run on the main roster again, feuding with Charlotte where the two even faced off in the first-ever women's Hell in a Cell match. She also had notable rivalries with Bayley and Becky Lynch on the main roster.
Sasha Banks entered a profitable partnership with Bayley in 2020, turning heel shockingly. She then won every belt in the WWE Women's division with Bayley, and the duo called themselves the 'Golden Role Models'. After a dramatic deterioration, Bayley turned on Banks, igniting a heated rivalry between the two. Sasha Banks came out on top after a thrilling match at Hell in a Cell, capturing the SmackDown Women's Championship from Bayley.
At present, she is working as a free agent and is expected to join either WWE or AEW.
