Sasha Banks Teases Possibilities For Battleground Partner, More

Sasha Banks spoke with BET promoting WWE Battleground. Some highlights are below:

On who will be her mystery partner at Battleground: “I get a lot of tweets. It could be Nikki Bella — I’ve been hearing a lot of rumors. It might be Bayley. The [WWE] Draft just happened and we just got a lot of new girls — Alexa Bliss, Carmella, Nia Jax. Could be one of them. You never know. The Boss doesn’t need friends, but the ones I do have I keep very close. I finally get to get my hands on Charlotte, who has been running from me since day one. She’s been hiding because she knows I’m better than her. After this Sunday, I’m going to prove to Charlotte that I deserve a one-on-one match with her.”

On Snoop Dogg mentioning her in his WWE Hall of Fame speech: “I had no idea that he was going to mention me in his speech, so that really touched my heart. I was only 16 and WrestleMania [XXIV in March 2008] was in Orlando, which is crazy because that’s where WrestleMania [33] is going to be next year. But I just remember begging him like, ‘Please, please, please take me with you.’ He was the [Master of Ceremonies] for a match at WrestleMania that year and I remember him walking down the ramp during rehearsals and I was running behind him. I was like, ‘Wow, this is going to be me and I’m going to be walking down this ramp one day.’ And here I am, eight years later, walking down the ramp at WrestleMania with him performing my entrance music.”

On what she’d tell a young African-American girl watching her and wanting to be a WWE Superstar: “To anybody — boy or girl — if it’s your dream, do not give up. I was told no a 100 times. I was told I wasn’t pretty enough, tall enough, that I didn’t have the right look. But I kept coming back and saying, ‘No, this is my dream and I’m going to keep fighting for it.’ I’m finally here, but I’m still fighting for my goals and things I want to accomplish.”
