Following WrestleMania 35, Sasha Banks took a break from WWE until the Raw after SummerSlam. Banks was reportedly unhappy with the creative direction after losing the Women's Tag Team Championships at WrestleMania 35.
Speaking to Corey Graves on WWE After The Bell, Banks discussed partnering with Bayley again and her mindset upon her return.
"Legit, the best," she said about Bayley. "When I came back, I came back really refreshed and wanting to have fun this time around. It's the best feeling in the world to do something and standing next to someone you really love and loves the same thing you do. We've seen Bayley the hugger for so many years and I really loved when she turned. I could feel that reaction from the fans like, 'No way, did that really just happen?'"
She continued, "I have a good time [playing heel or babyface] but this right now is a little more fun because we haven't been able to do this, like this. I hope we get to do it again, if not as good guys, then the role models and leaders that you see today."
Banks is currently sidelined with what she describes as an ankle injury. You can find her in-character comments by clicking here. As reported on Fightful Select, Banks was not cleared for the Women's Royal Rumble. It is unknown when she will return to the ring.
