Sasha Banks on the possibility of a Four Horsewomen vs. Four Horsewomen feud

Ahead of her Fatal 5-Way match at No Mercy for the Raw Women’s Championship, Sasha Banks spoke with Bleacher Report to discuss wrestling different style opponents, working live television and the possibility of a Four Horsewomen vs. Horsewomen feud. Highlights of the interview below.

On working with different style opponent: “Just like anybody I wrestle, I just try to prove I’m the best and I can work with anybody, any type, any strategy they have. They can have a ground game like Becky [Lynch]. Or like Alexa, she can run away, but I’ll catch her. Anyone I wrestle is a challenge to me, which I love—to go from wrestling her to Nia Jax to Charlotte. I love the challenge of it all. That’s what I love about wrestling. You can take different people and just make magic out of it. There’s some people you really click with and there’s people like Bayley, where we can go out there and not say a word and just know what we’re gonna do. Or there’s people like Charlotte, where you go all out or nothing at all. Or even Nia Jax, it’s such a different type of person that I’d never wrestled before. I’d never had that big girl/little girl story. It’s been a lot of fun.”

On not knowing a lot of what will happen when she arrives to an arena to do television: “It makes it what’s exciting about coming to work sometimes. I’d rather know what I’m doing and be prepared. When you’re not, it just makes things so much more hectic, and it makes you want to do the best that you can with the time you’re given. Like, tonight I have no idea what I’m doing, but when I find out, I just want to make it the best that I can. That’s what I didn’t miss about NXT. Those are taped shows. Here on Monday Night Raw, it’s live and anything can happen. Anybody can get hurt and someone needs to come in and do something. You never know what’s going to happen. In NXT, we do four tapings in a month and you kinda know where you’re going to go, because you get to watch those tapings. There’s an excitement to coming to work every week and not knowing what you’re doing and just making the best of it all.”

On working as a Babyface vs. Heel: “There’s so many different characters in WWE, which is what makes us us. That’s what draws people to you, telling those stories and being able to take them on a roller coaster. Whether I’m heel or babyface, that’s what I want to do. I just want to leave them talking. When I’m a babyface, I want them to care for me. When I’m a heel, I want them to hate me. I know a lot of people like to say, ‘Oh, when is Sasha gonna turn heel again,’ but all in due time.”

On not being present during the Four Horsewomen confrontation at the Mae Young Classic and possible feud: “I wasn’t disappointed in that situation at all. I was more disappointed that I didn’t get to come out and support these women who’ve had a dream like I had. I felt like I was part of something so special, making this happen with a bunch of women who came before me. To have an all-women classic, it just gave me goosebumps. I cried when I found out I couldn’t be a part of it. I was over in Australia doing a PR tour. I had Bayley Facetiming and I felt this missing hole. I had to be there. Then finding out I couldn’t go to Las Vegas, because I had to go to Australia for the actual tour, I’m like ‘what’s going on in this universe?’ I got to see the picture of our Horsewomen versus the phoney Four Horsewomen. They’re fans of us. That’s why they’re called the Four Horsewomen. Honestly, I do not care. They couldn’t hang in our ring and that’s it. I’ll just say you never know what’s going to happen in WWE. If it did, just bring it. I’ll take on anybody.”

Sasha Banks also discusses WWE 2K18, James Ellsworth‘s run as a manager and the passing of Bobby Heenan.
