On Monday, June 4, WWE launched the website for its state of the art Performance Center and recruitment tools for aspiring wrestlers. The announcement used Sasha Banks on the header – touting her as one of the success stories to come out of the PC.
The online hub at WWEPerformanceCenter.com includes step-by-step instructions on how to apply for a tryout, as well as access to the official application form; an overview of the many resources available to WWE PC recruits, from professional development and life-skills services, to in-ring training and on-site medical care; photos of the entire Performance Center roster, including current NXT Superstars and champions; biographies of the WWE PC’s industry-leading coaching staff; testimonials from Raw and SmackDown Superstars like John Cena and Finn Bálor; and videos from past tryouts, both those held at the Performance Center and internationally.
Sasha Banks has the distinction of holding several prolific accolades in WWE since her debut on the main roster in 2015. She’s been in the main event of Raw with Charlotte several times, had the first Hell in a Cell match, the first Iron Man match on the main roster, held the Raw Women’s Title four times, holds the distinction of being the Iron Woman at the women’s Royal Rumble, and more.
She previously had a meteoric rise in NXT as The Boss, going on to have a MOTY with Bayley at NXT: Brooklyn in 2015 and then participating in the first Iron Man match in NXT with Bayley again several months later.
