Sasha Banks misses Mexico.

In November, Sasha Banks (Mercedes Varnado) was spotted training in Mexico with the likes of Juventud Guerrera, Samuray Del Sol, and more. Banks has not wrestled since May when she and Naomi, who were the reigning WWE Women's Tag Team Champions, walked out of WWE.

Appearing on a charity stream to benefit Family Giving Tree on Instagram Live with Bayley, Banks reflected on her time training in Mexico.

"I miss Mexico so much. I think about it every single day. What a huge crazy honor to live in a different country, let alone Mexico. Just to go out there to train lucha libre with these top legends that I grew up watching, whether it was Ricky Marvin, The Juice Juventud, Skayde, I have been such a fan of his work. The way that he teaches, he taught a lot of CHIKARA Pro guys. Claudio (Castagnoli), Drew Gulak. I'm a huge fan of Claudio's work. I wanted to get my basing down, my rolls down, so I found him at the gym and freaked out like a fan. 'You're here. You're actually here. I've been DMing you for years, trying to find an email, trying to go to a seminar in the United States.' There I was in Mexico, training with him. Craziest timing, so meant to be. Trained with five different people whether it was Ricky Marvin, The Juice [Juventud], Mamba, Skayda, Mr. Iguana. There was so much. I miss it daily. I'm homesick from Mexico because I belong there," she said.

Bayley said that she enjoyed training in Mexico because when they tell you that you do something wrong, they make fun of you, but do it in a fun way.

Banks said, "On the last day of training, Skayde kept hitting me over the head because I kept messing up all the spots. 'Nooo.' He called me 'El Stupida.' I was like, 'I'm gonna cry. What the hell.' I was doing two a days, training in the morning, training at night. Everything is on the other side. He is so 'zippity doo da' and I'm like, 'I didn't understand.' [claps heads on head] 'El stupida.'"

It is unknown when Banks will return to the ring.

She will reportedly be at NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 17 on January 4. Fans can learn more about her appearance by clicking here.
