During the interview, Banks answered questions about a variety of topics. 

What she does not miss about independent wrestling promotions:

"Scummy promoters. I don't miss getting paid twenty-five dollars or getting paid by getting a slice of pizza. It was legit 'you either get a pizza or a hotdog' or you get twenty-five dollars. That was it," said Banks.

How she created "The Boss" character:

"I didn't really have a larger-than-life character. I was looking around and said 'we really don't have any bad guys. So, let me turn bad' because I was a good guy at the time. I was like 'just accept Snoop Dogg is your cousin, just do it.' When I was around him, his bodyguards would always call him 'boss'...And I was like 'that's kind of catchy, that's a good little nickname.' I was like 'Sasha Banks, the boss' and it turned into 'Legit Boss,'" said Banks.

Recovering from Iron Woman matches: 

"I did have a glass of wine afterwards and I did have a large pizza. Because to prepare for that match all I did was cardio because I'm like 'this is the longest match I have every had.' And then my Iron Woman match with Charlotte, I think that went forty-five minutes. I was dead because she broke my nose during it. I was bleeding. I was like 'oh my god, can this finally be over? oh, it's over,'" said Banks.

Also during the interview, Banks shared anecdotes about her early career and meeting Vince McMahon. She took part in the usual segments of the show. Banks faired well against the spicy chicken and said she considers herself a spicy food fan.
