In the last several months, Sasha Banks has taken up a prominent role on the main roster. She has become a fan favorite over that span. In a recent interview with Sam Roberts Wrestling Podcast, Banks revealed that a former WWE legend called her their favorite wrestler.
“Shawn Michaels was backstage and he talked to me. I was like, ‘oh, this is so cool.’ He was like, ‘dude, you’re my favourite wrestler.’ I was like, ‘what the? You said that to me, Shawn Michaels?'”
This is a huge honor given that Michaels has been around the business over the past two decades. He knows what it takes to succeed in the WWE, and he sees that with Banks. Michaels still has much pedigree to what he says and believes that is largely why the company has brought him back in as a coach at the performance center.
As for Banks, she is at an interesting crossroad in her career. She has lost the Raw Women’s title at Hell in A Cell and looks to be out of the feud with Charlotte as she is expected to focus on Bayley. It will be interesting to see what lies next for Banks.
