Sasha Banks loves the idea of being SmackDown Women’s Champion but she says that her match next week against her former best friend, Bayley, is about so much more than a championship belt.
After three years of on-again-off-again fighting, Sasha Banks and Bayley have seemingly severed the ties of their friendship and will clash next week for the WWE SmackDown Women's Championship. The situation became very personal very quickly between these women with Bayley revealing several weeks ago on SmackDown that she was using Sasha Banks all along.
Appearing on the most recent episode of WWE Talking Smack, Sasha Banks addressed those remarks and said that next week, she's coming to end her former friend.
“You know, the 'using me' part, I get. She has been using me because she's always needed me. Bayley, you can't do this without me,” said Sasha. “You can't do the magazine covers, you can't get the following. You can't get the interviews, the appearances. You can't get star power because you're not a star like me, plain and simple. So of course you were using me. That's not what hurt me.”
She continued, “It's after all of these years, all of these years of friendship, I knew you before you even got signed, I felt your energy. I believed in you before anybody else did and I know that you believed in me. So you can use me all you want, but I need to remind you that you're absolutely nothing without me. You try to end my career, you try to end me because you know that you cannot beat me. So come next week, Bayley, forget about the title, it's not even about that. I'm coming to end you.”
