Sasha Banks Talks Recent Training In Mexico

Sasha Banks (Mercedes Varnado) recently trained in Mexico with talents such as Juventud Guerrera, Samuray Del Sol, and others. This took place in November and she hasn’t wrestled a match since May when she walked out of WWE alongside Naomi when they were the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions.

On a recent charity stream for Family Giving Tree alongside Bayley on Instagram Live, Banks reflected her time in Mexico. Roxanne Perez and Indi Hartwell also appeared on the stream.

“I miss Mexico so much. I think about it every single day. What a huge crazy honor to live in a different country, let alone Mexico. Just to go out there to train lucha libre with these top legends that I grew up watching, whether it was Ricky Marvin, The Juic Juventud, Skayde…I have been such a fan of his work. he way that he teaches, he taught a lot of CHIKARA Pro guys. Claudio (Castagnoli), Drew Gulak. I’m a huge fan of Claudio’s work. I wanted to get my basing down, my rolls down, so I found him at the gym and freaked out like a fan. ‘You’re here. You’re actually here. I’ve been DMing you for years, trying to find an email, trying to get to a seminar in the United States.’ There I was in Mexico, training with him. Craziest timing so meant to be. Trained with five different people whether it was Ricky Marvin, The Juice, Mamba, Skayde, Mr. Iguana. There was so much. I miss it daily. I’m homesick from Mexico because I belong there.” (Fightful)

Bayley chimed in and explained how training in Mexico is enjoyable. She says they tell you when you do something wrong and make fun of you, but in a fun way.

Banks reportedly will be at NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 17 in January according to PWInsider. It has been reported by Dave Meltzer that she wouldn’t be wrestling but would appear. She has also confirmed that she has a makeup line coming.

Fightful Select will have more news on Banks coming soon including where interests may be coming from including AEW.
