On the latest episode of WWE Talking Smack, Banks made a statement that hits the core. The impact isn’t primarily in what she said, but how she said it. Her voice, expression, and emotions portrayed an individual who was hell-bent on revenge.

According to Banks, she wasn’t unaware of Bayley using her. Unfortunately, Bayley’s backstabbing is what hurt Sasha Banks. Now, she is all set to remind the current WWE Women’s SmackDown Champion where she stands.

“You know the using me part, I get. She has been using me, because she has always needed me. Bayley you can’t do this without me. You can’t do the magazine covers, you can’t get the following, you can’t get the interviews, the appearance. You can’t get the star power because you’re not a star like me. So, of course you were using me. But that’s not what hurt me.”

“It’s after all of these years, all of these years of friendship. I knew you before you even got signed, I felt your energy. I believed in you before anybody else did. And I know that you believed in me. So you can use me all you want but I need to remind you that you are absolutely nothing without me. You tried to end my career, you tried to end me because you know you cannot beat me. So come next week Bayley, forget about the title. It’s not even about that. I’m coming to end you!”

Does the storyline end with Sasha Banks defeating Bayley?

Sasha Banks has a larger following on social media, something which inspired her passionate promo. In fact, she has two million more followers on Instagram alone.

What if she does not? Let’s not forget that Vince McMahon was doting on them when they were together as The Golden Role Models. There’s no saying how the company will move forward with this rivalry given they’re both equally important.
