Sasha Banks turns the volume up when the red light is on.
Former WWE Women's Champion Sasha Banks fancies herself as the Legit Boss who is better than everyone. Prior to WWE Evolution, she boldly proclaimed that she was the greatest female wrestler to step foot in the ring. Appearing on The Real, Banks revealed that she's a much different person when the cameras are not on.
"When that red light comes on, I'm a whole different person. When I'm back home, I'm just this anime nerd who wants to sleep on the couch all day. But when I'm in that ring I want to be larger than life. I want to show the world that I'm the very best at what I do," said Banks.
Elsewhere in the interview, Banks discussed her larger than life persona and how she came up with the Legit Boss nickname.
"I got it from Snoop Dogg. I remember being around him when I was little and thinking when I got signed, 'I need a persona that's larger than life.' I knew when I was out in the ring that I was the very best," she stated. "But I was so nervous and so shy when I first got in. I was like, 'You know what, people call him the Boss. I'm gonna take that and make myself the Legit Boss. Because I'm more legit than him.'"
Banks has had a rough year by Legit Boss standards, having been linked to Bayley in some capacity since the beginning of 2018. The friends turned foes turned friends again currently have their eyes set on the Women's Tag Team Titles...whenever they are announced.
