The former WCW champion would go on to state that WWE's women's roster needs someone like Banks to add more depth to it, especially given what she has been able to accomplish for the past several years.

"I do think the women's division needs Sasha Banks. I don't think the division would be the same without her. That's the kind of impact Sasha really brings to the division. Also there's many African American females that need a Sasha Banks to look up to [not taking away from Ember Moon or Naomi]. They need Sasha. She's been in a lot of these 'First Times:' Hell in a Cell, Iron Woman Classic. She's the one who's had these opportunities to get the rocket strapped and go to the moon. She's held the title several times... I understand what Sasha Banks was going through and sometimes you have to take a step back," Banks said.
