Former WWE Raw Women's Champion Sasha Banks appeared on Hot Ones recently, where she speaks with host Sean Evans about her WWE career. You can check out submitted highlights below, and the full interview above.
"I feel at ease when I'm in that square circle. The hardest reality is knowing that it's a lot of politics, a lot of grueling grueling traveling, which I didn't realize how hard that would be."
How she got her nickname, and being Snoop Dogg's cousin:
"When I was around him, his bodyguards would always call him 'boss', and I was like, 'That's kind of catchy. That's a good little nickname.' So I was like, 'Sasha Banks the Boss,' and then it turned to 'The Legit Boss.'
"Any time he was with the WWE, I would call him and be like, 'Please take me with you. I love this. Please, please, please.' And I remember going with him at 2008, and he was doing rehearsals with the Divas at the time, and he was walking down the ramp. And I was following him behind like this, and I was walking down the WrestleMania ramp. I was 16 at the time and 25 doing it this year. Dreams really do come true."
Her post-match relaxation:
"Lots of wine. I love drinking wine after a match. It makes me really calm and relaxed."
Her love and connection of Boston:
"I was in Boston when they won the Bruins championship. The whole town just came out of these restaurants and just went to the streets and started rallying…It was so crazy. That's why I love Boston so much. Any time I go out in Boston and they say, 'From Boston, Massachusetts…' the crowd just erupts. I remember in my Hell in a Cell match with Charlotte, I lost it, and they were just dead silent. They couldn't believe it. I thought they were going to start a riot. I'm like, 'That's Boston fans for you."
