When it was announced that Sasha Banks would have a mystery tag partner to face off against Charlotte and Dana Brooke at WWE Battleground, the rumor mill ran amok as to who the partner would be.
"The Boss" recently spoke to BET.com to discuss Battleground, her upbringings, and her cousin Snoop Dogg.
When asked who her partner might be, the former NXT Women's Champion remained tight lipped. She did, however, commented on several women that have been rumored.
"I get a lot of tweets," Banks said. "It could be Nikki Bella — I've been hearing a lot of rumors. It might be Bayley. The [WWE] Draft just happened and we just got a lot of new girls — Alexa Bliss, Carmella, Nia Jax. Could be one of them. You never know. The Boss doesn't need friends, but the ones I do have I keep very close. I finally get to get my hands on Charlotte, who has been running from me since day one. She's been hiding because she knows I'm better than her. After this Sunday, I'm going to prove to Charlotte that I deserve a one-on-one match with her."
On the subject of her famous cousin, Snoop Dogg, Banks was ecstatic when he joined her for her WrestleMania 32 entrace. She has spoken numerous times on the importance of Snoop Dogg as it pertains to her WWE career.
When Snoop was being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame earlier this year, he mentioned the former NXT Women's Champion in his speech, something that stayed with Banks
"I had no idea that he was going to mention me in his speech, so that really touched my heart," Banks said. "I was only 16 and WrestleMania [XXIV in March 2008] was in Orlando, which is crazy because that's where WrestleMania  is going to be next year. But I just remember begging him like, 'Please, please, please take me with you.' He was the [Master of Ceremonies] for a match at WrestleMania that year and I remember him walking down the ramp during rehearsals and I was running behind him. I was like, 'Wow, this is going to be me and I'm going to be walking down this ramp one day.' And here I am, eight years later, walking down the ramp at WrestleMania with him performing my entrance music."
