It's a balancing act for "The Boss."
Just two years ago at WrestleMania, Sasha Banks lost the Women's Tag Team Championship and went on a self-imposed hiatus to find herself. Two years later, she will be in the first-ever singles women's main event of WrestleMania and the first all-black main event of WrestleMania
Now, as she heads for what may very well prove to be one of the most defining moments of her life and career, she tells The Grio that she still has difficulties at times balancing Mercedes and Sasha Banks but she could not be more excited for what is to come on Saturday night.
"I still have to struggle through it to this day. I mean, like everyone else, COVID has shaken up my world like everything else. I’m thinking left and right. But every day you got to take moments to yourself and realize your center, where you came from before everybody told you to be who you’re supposed to be. You’re supposed to figure out [who] you want to be, [it’s] the only you can get yourself there. When I took that time to realize that, took that four months off, to really find myself again, figure out my voice and my name, and my hair and who I wanted to be in this world, that’s when I just started feeling amazing again.
"When I came back to my center, to myself, that’s where I got my happiness and so, I’m feeling great. I’m feeling amazing. I cannot wait for WrestleMania 37, where I’m going to make more dreams come true for myself and keep on changing the game."
There is no more debate. Stephanie McMahon has stated that Sasha Banks and Bianca Belair will close the first night of WrestleMania. Learn more here.
