Sasha Banks was interviewed for the 'Smashing Glass Ceilings: The Women of WWE' documentary on Channel 4 in the UK. The former Three Time Women's Champion spoke to 'Gorilla Position' podcast host James Delow about a number of subjects, including her on-screen persona, her dream goals, and how women's wrestling has changed.
She also spoke about how she's able to shrug off negative fan reactions. You can hear her comments on this subject in the video above:
"Ultimately their opinion does not affect me because regardless [of what it is], they're talking about me. Love me or hate me, you're talking about me. You're invested in me, that's why you're mentioning my name. You're going to see the match regardless. Whether you're for it or against it, you're watching it and you're talking about it."
Does she ever bring "The Boss" character home with her?:
"When the camera is on I am 100 per cent this larger than life character. But when I come home I am this private, shy girl who feels like she is getting to live her dream every day. Sasha on TV is everything I wish I could be in normal life - being her has actually helped me and given me the confidence to stand up for myself."
What is her dream goal?:
"I am making it happen for myself and doing everything I have ever set my mind on - but I want more. Wrestling in Japan is one thing but main-eventing WrestleMania is the dream goal."
How does she feel about the changes in women's wrestling since she's been in WWE?:
"When I was 10 I wrote in my journal that I wanted to be the greatest women's wrestler of all time and that I wanted to change the definition of what it was to be a Diva in WWE. The fact we are now not Divas but Superstars, are getting opportunities like the guys and are making history means there are so many emotions."
