Sasha Banks comments on the current Women’s roster

From the beginning, Sasha Banks was a part of the women’s revolution. From battling for the Women’s championship to defending it, she was clear about her ambitions. At Hell in the Cell, she proved her potential to be ” The Boss” by winning the SmackDown Women’s Championship for the first time against Bailey.

During a recent interview with Bleacher Report, Sasha was questioned about whether she feels pressure to carry the women’s revolution. Banks replied, “Yes just because I want to keep the momentum going because I wanted to make sure that if I’m not in the title picture, there are more women in the title picture and there’s two women’s storylines going on at once.”

“I just want more, more, more for the women, and I feel like we’ve been doing that. For me, it’s nothing new. I feel the pressure less and less because they believe in me so much that I don’t have to put pressure on myself anymore.”

Later, Banks also appreciated the current women’s roster. She loves the growing competition in the women’s division. She stated, “The WWE women’s division is the best it’s ever been. I think it’s the greatest of any era from top to bottom and I can’t wait to see what more the future brings, even from NXT 2.0.

To see how many women are down there from when I first started—there was only a group of eight and now there’s maybe a group of 30—just to see the growth from then to now is so beautiful.”
