Sasha Banks reveals she was “pissed off” that Ronda Rousey received more money than her in WWE

In a recent interview on The Kurt Angle Show, Sasha Banks revealed she was “pissed off” that Ronda Rousey received more money than her in WWE.

Rousey was a huge part of WWE during her one-year run in the promotion. However, her tenure was not without controversy. After her surprise debut at 2018’s Royal Rumble, she won the RAW Women’s Championship, which received unfavourable feedback from both fans and wrestlers alike.

Banks was a recent guest on the WWE Hall of Famer’s podcast and spoke about Rousey’s time in WWE.

“I can only speak for myself. There might be a little tension, I don’t know about real heat.

I was pissed off that Ronda Rousey could come in, get more money than me, get a (better) locker room than me, and bring all these people backstage and get more time than me. I’m like, ‘excuse me? who is you and what you do?’ Besides respecting everything she’s done in the UFC and the fight world, when it comes to the squared circle, that’s my home. That’s where I’m the legit boss, not Ronda Rousey.”

Banks and Rousey fought for the RAW women’s title at 2019’s Royal Rumble. After an intense back-and-forth, Rousey emerged victorious, which left Banks wanting a rematch.

“I’m so down to working with Ronda again. I loved our match at Royal Rumble. To have a match with somebody that doesn’t have the professional wrestling background and was so new and fresh, I love challenges like that. She got it so quick because she did love it and was a fan and because over her fighting background, she knew how to take things and it flowed so easily and naturally. She was awesome to work with and I would love to have another match with her.”
