Sasha Banks Says She’s The Beyonce Of WWE, Talks Dusty Rhodes Helping Her W/ Promos, More

RAW Women’s Champion Sasha Banks recently spoke with David Dennis Jr of The Undefeated; you can read a few excerpts below:

Sasha talks about Dusty Rhodes helping her find her character in NXT:
“Dusty would always say [mimicking his trademark lisp], ‘There’s something to this, babyyy. I want to you to be sassyyyy.’ People would wonder why I’m dressed like I’m dressed and acting like Kanye West, but I just kept coming to class and working on it. It became this persona.”
Banks says she is the Beyoncé of WWE:
“Oh, hell yeah, you’re right. I am the Beyoncé of the WWE. I am. The Beyoncé of the WWE. Beyoncé is the greatest, so I am the greatest. Not only in the Women’s division, I’m trying to show the guys I’m better than them. I can close out RAW every week if you give me the opportunity. I want to be the face of the women’s division and I will be.”
Sasha talks about her initial reaction to the ‘Sasha’s ratchet’ chants:
“I heard the chant for the first time during a match with Emma and I thought they were saying ‘Sasha’s rat s—.’ It was the worst feeling in the world. I went to the back after the match and thought they hated the match. It hurt.”
