Sasha Banks on WWE’s Creative Plans

The former four-time WWE RAW Women’s Champion, Sasha Banks, recently sat down with Sam Roberts on his popular podcast Sam Roberts’ Wrestling Podcast. Among many other things, Banks talked about the difference between NXT and the main roster on the creative side. Banks talks about knowing where storylines were going months in advance in NXT and since moving to the main roster she does not know where storylines are going.

“I think that’s what’s different about NXT too. We kind of always knew where we were going, so it helped me prepare and think of ahead of time, like, ‘how can I make this better?’. But when I go to RAW, it’s legit, like, ‘I have no clue what I’m doing.’ I don’t even know what to prepare for. I’m just, like, handed something or told something. And I was like, ‘okay, I have one hour to get ready. Oh, okay. Alright. Let’s just do it!’ So, honestly, I wish we had the opportunity to know what we’re doing in the next three months. If we’re going with a storyline, I would like to know, ‘yeah, we’re going with you and Alexa [Bliss] and this is where we want to take it and where we want to go’ instead of just being, ‘oh, maybe you’ll have a tag match. Maybe you’ll have a promo. Maybe you’ll have this random match that doesn’t make any sense or whatever. Who knows? Or maybe you’ll just sit in catering. Who knows?'”

“The Boss” also talked about why she is against all the women wrestlers being on one brand.

“I feel like we wouldn’t be all used if we were all just on one show, so I don’t know. And, like, there [are] two champions, so that’s really awesome.”

It’s refreshing to see a wrestler be so honest and hopefully, this interview will help creative plan storylines that benefit wrestlers long term like Banks wishes.
