As a reward, ‘The Boss’ gets a base salary of 250,00$ per year. Apart from this, she also gains significant revenue from WWE approved brand endorsements, appearances, and merchandise sales.

Also, WWE offers an undisclosed amount of bonuses to its top talents based on their performance. All this cash made Banks worth quite a fortune. As of 2021, Sasha’s net worth is estimated at $5 Million.

Sasha Banks is currently feuding with Carmella

Although she enjoyed quite a title reign, 2020 was not so great for Banks. Despite being the WWE Raw Women’s Champion and one-half of the Tag Team Champion, Sasha Banks lost it all.

First, she lost the title to Asuka, then her best-friend/tag team partner, Bayley, turned on her following their loss. Banks was left alone when Bayley injured her neck and left.

However, Banks got her revenge on Bayley. In a highly acclaimed match at Hell in a Cell 2020, Banks defeated Bayley and won her first SmackDown Women’s Title and sixth Women’s title in total.

Banks would then go on to have a feud with a revamped Carmella. Recently, Banks faced Reginald, Carmella’s ‘sommelier’ for WWE’s first inter-gender match since 2017. Carmella got a title shot after this but failed to win.

After Royal Rumble, the winner Bianca Belair has teased a match with Banks. However, nothing has been officially announced. Apart from WWE, Banks will serve as the honorary starter of the Daytona 500, a 500-mile long Nascar Cup series. Banks will surely gain some more bonuses from this major appearance as wel.
