Sasha Banks explains where she has been since losing to Bianca Belair at WrestleMania 37.

On the latest episode of Talking Smack, Sasha explained what the SummerSlam showdown means to her and where she has been since dropping the belt to Belair at WrestleMania. Here is what she said:

"What does it mean? I mean, I finally get my rematch. I finally get my revenge on Bianca Belair. You know, for months I was sitting at home healing that wound that she did to me after she cheated with that braid. I would never drop that low if I was the champion. No, no, no, no. I brought people up. Just like I brought Bianca up. Just like I helped her get an ESPY. Just like I helped her get all these accolades that she wants to claim that she's the biggest star now. She's the EST of WWE? Well, I'm the Legit Boss and I'm coming back for my SmackDown Women's Championship."

Sasha continued on to say that she feels a thank you is needed from Bianca. Furthermore, come SummerSlam, Banks believes a title victory is all but assured and that she is now the EST of WWE.

"I mean, wouldn't you say thank you after everything I've done? I don't get no respect around here," Banks claimed. "I'm The Boss, I'm the standard, I'm the leader, and I'm the conversation, and she needs to realize that. Come SummerSlam, Bianca will not be the EST of WWE no more. Because I'm the greatest, I'm the best. So I guess that makes me the EST of the WWE now. Bye, Bu. I'll see you at SummerSlam. Victory is mine."
