Sasha Banks impressed her co-star on "The Mandalorian" and now Katee Sackhoff wants to enter Sasha's world.
Sasha Banks, going by her real name Mercedes Varnado, landed a big role in "The Mandalorian" in 2020 and ended up becoming a featured cast member as Koska Reeves. Banks appeared in two episodes and played a big part in the season finale.
Banks' co-star Katee Sackhoff, who played Bo-Katan Kryze, had high praise for the SmackDown Women's Champion.
"Mercedes is such a beautiful blend of so many qualities that are phenomenal. She is one of the hardest workers I've ever met in my entire life. She is grateful and humble. She's incredibly talented and fierce. She is open to learn. She's gonna be a superstar and is absolutely amazing. She is so physically capable and makes it look easy. There are certain things I've been trained to do as a fighter and actor, but when they do it as a living and as an athlete and they are flying around, it's very different than me pretending to do it in a foam pit with a bunch of five-year-olds. I really really want to fight with Sasha. I want Katee Sackhoff to show up and be her tag team partner for a WWE match," Sackhoff told Schmoedown Entertainment Network.
When asked if she had ever attended a WWE event, Sackhoff replied, "I've only been to one in my entire life and it was a Sasha Banks fight. I went with the entire stunt team from The Mandalorian watching Mercedes fight and she tells me that everybody boos. So I was like, 'I'm going to cheer so hard.' She goes, 'Don't you dare, you have to boo.' I was like, 'okay, I'll boo you.' I was booing so hard. I was drinking a beer and screaming at her."
Sackhoff went on to say that her outburst against Banks was nothing compared to a child next to her, who wanted to "murder" Sasha.
