Sasha Banks: I Want People To Look At Women's Wrestling And Think, 'That's The Greatest Thing Ever'

Sasha Banks continues to want it all.

Banks made history at WrestleMania 37 by headlining night one of the event in a SmackDown Women's Championship bout against Bianca Belair. She's made history outside of WWE as one of the stars of "The Mandalorian."

Sasha helped usher in a new era for the WWE women's division as part of the women's revolution thanks to her work in NXT before moving to the main roster.

“This universe keeps giving me so much more,” Banks said in an interview with The Athletic. “It’s so cool that my hard work since I was a kid is paying off. Women’s wrestling, something I wanted forever, it’s being taken seriously. I never want that to change. I want it to be something people look to and think it’s the greatest thing they’ve ever seen. I want my face on the posters. I want people buying tickets to see Sasha Banks.”

Banks has become a crossover star through "The Mandalorian," an appearance on "Hot Ones," being part of the NCAA Football National Championship open, and more. Much like The Rock and John Cena before her, Banks sees herself as following in those footsteps.

"I think I can in such a different way,” she said. “I see The Rock as maybe the biggest global superstar, and John Cena is coming right behind him. It would be cool to see a woman step into that level. I think with Sasha Banks and Mercedes Varnado right there, I think the stars are aligned for me.”

Banks is set to team with Naomi and challenge for the WWE Women's Tag Team Championships at WrestleMania 38.
