With some of the coolest tattoos on the roster and a short pixie cut, Ruby Riott is one of the edgiest superstars in WWE. Her look and attire drips charisma, and the confidence with which she pulls off her look is quite brilliant. Sasha Banks imitated Ruby’s amazing confidence on her Instagram as she gave herself a makeover.

Complete with a wig with green hair, fake tattoos and a quirky pose, Banks bore a stunning resemblance to Ruby Riott. The fake tattoos are particularly eye-catching, especially the one featuring a wolf on Banks’ chest. She nailed the look down to the last detail, getting the dark lipstick and even the outfit exactly right.

The post grabbed the attention of quite a few people. WWE legends D-Von Dudley and Shane Helms complimented Banks for her fresh look. Along with the legends, former WWE commentator Renee Paquette also commented on the post. Natalya and Dana Brooke also left positive comments on the Boss’ post.

The Boss had an amazing year which is in stunning contrast to the rest of the women’s division. With Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair absent for long periods, Bayley and Sasha Banks more than stepped up to the plate. Banks’ presence was crucial for Bayley to keep the SmackDown Women’s Title in her grasp.

Sasha and Bayley won the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships on SmackDown. This was Banks’ first title win since winning the same titles with Bayley at Elimination Chamber 2019. After winning the titles, she moved on to a feud with Asuka. With help from Bayley, Banks beat Asuka to win the Raw Women’s Championship.

Upon returning, Banks targeted Bayley’s championship, and challenged her to a Hell in a Cell match. Banks beat her former best friend in an instant classic and won the championship. The Boss even saw off Carmella at WWE TLC and will end 2020 as the champion.
