For those wondering what Banks has really done, here’s a quick recap of her achievements throughout her WWE career. Since joining, she has become a 5-time Raw Women’s Champion, SmackDown Women’s Champion, NXT Women’s Champion, and 2-time WWE Women’s Tag Team Champion.

These Championship reigns made her the Third WWE Women’s Grand Slam Champion and Fourth WWE Women’s Triple Crown Champion. In short, she has won every belt there is to win within her division’s capacity. 

Sasha Banks has done all of this and has a long career ahead of her which is bound to be filled with more gold. She aims to complete her legacy as the most decorated female Superstar of all time by winning the WWE NXT UK Women’s Championship, currently held by Kay Lee Ray. 

Trish Stratus was placed #1 on the list

‘The Legit Boss’ is currently in her first reign as SmackDown Women’s Champion and has gone through hell and back to get where she is now. She will surely make it higher up the list by the end of her career.

Beating Banks on this list are Asuka, Chyna, Becky Lynch, Charlotte Flair, and Trish Stratus respectively. All these Superstars have been deemed as the greatest of all time and 3 out of these 5 still have a long career ahead of them which says a lot about the impact of the Evolution in the WWE’s Women’s Division.

Keep in mind that this list only includes Superstars after 1993. This explains the absence of Wrestling legends such as The Fabulous Moolah and Mae Young.

The list was made as part of the WWE Network’s partnership with Peacock and rankings were “heavily based on in-ring accomplishments, championship victories, and creating legendary moments,” according to WWE.
