However, this is just the beginning of Banks. As one of the front runners of WWE’s Women’s Revolution, she could not be happier. In a recent Digital Spy interview, she said, “For any new fan watching, especially women, I think it’s so cool to see women do it better than the guys.”

“For my match to be so well-received and for fans to say that I had the match of the night… it’s just incredible to be a part of this Women’s Evolution where just non-stop fans talk about the women and how incredible that we do,” as she referred to her Hell in a Cell match with Bayley.

However, she wants to main-event WrestleMania again. Banks said it does not matter who she faces, “I just want to have the most fun time that I can have in WWE. Whether that’s Bayley at WrestleMania, whether that’s Liv Morgan, whether that’s Ruby Riott – it could be anybody.”

Yet, she singled out Bayley as the ultimate opponent for a “dream-come-true moment,” “But, of course, to main event WrestleMania is still one of my biggest dreams and to do that with Bayley would be ultimately a dream come true.”

In 2018, WWE presented the first-ever all-women pay-per-view in history. The event was a huge success. However, it got postponed for two years. Like fans, Sasha, too, wants the revival of it.

“[Evolution] is something I absolutely want to happen again,” Sasha said. “It’s just something that I think was so incredible for the women and for the fans that I don’t understand why there hasn’t been a second one yet.”
