Sasha Banks began 2021 the same way she ended 2020 – as the best female wrestler in the world. The SmackDown Women’s Champion is enjoying a phenomenal run and is already in contention for the MVP of 2021.
Banks added another feather to her cap by appearing on the Broken Skull Sessions, where she compared herself to Vince McMahon.
Stone Cold Steve Austin and Sasha Banks discussed a wide range of topics, from the Boss’ battle with depression to losing the tag titles at WrestleMania 35. Banks was a wonderful guest, and her confidence and poise provided an entertaining episode for WWE fans.
Banks said, “There comes a point where you can be thankful, grateful and blessed, but they have to know there’s a chapter after that, and that’s where I’m at. I’m at a whole different level.
“I’m done with the pizza I don’t eat that anymore. I eat steak, like Vince McMahon, with vegetables, like him. Because I can be that, and that’s where I’m at. I’m not ‘Can I please be signed?’. I’m here, I’m signed. I’ve been here, I’ve put in the work and if I see myself where I wanna see myself; I’m at Vince McMahon’s level, and that’s just that.”
Austin responded to Banks, calling her statement an honest and candid answer. Banks’ statement may be bold and brazen, but the Boss is definitely good enough to be on that platform and project such confidence.
Sasha Banks will defend the SmackDown Women’s Championship at WrestleMania. This is the first time Banks walks into the Show of Shows as champion, but will she walk out of WrestleMania as champion?
Royal Rumble winner Bianca Belair hasn’t chosen her WrestleMania opponent yet, but Banks is the heavy favorite. Charlotte Flair and Asuka are a readymade pairing for WrestleMania, making Belair vs Banks a set match. They have already teased the match after the events at Elimination Chamber.
Belair vs Banks has been a dream match since the former stepped foot on the main roster. The two have never crossed paths, making their inevitable WrestleMania showdown even more special.
Tune in to SmackDown to see how the story between Banks and Belair proceeds and if a certain Carmella tries to third wheel the champion and Rumble winner.
