Sasha Banks was recently interviewed by Australian television show The Project to promote WWE’s upcoming tour of the continent in September. Banks shared why she created the “Bank Statement” finisher, working with her husband, WWE seamster and former independent wrestler Mikaze, and her favorite WWE career moment so far.
Here are the highlights.
On Creating “Bank Statement” Finisher:
“When I first started, I was scared of taking a bump, so I would get my mattresses and I would practice on that. But, that signature move, I wanted to be original, and that’s never been done. So, if anyone copies me, it’s because I made it.”
Working with Her Husband in the WWE:
“He’s like the fashionista. He does everything for me. I just choose the colors sometimes. Sometimes we disagree and I’m like, ‘You know what? You make my gear, and you just gotta make me look better than everyone else, or there’s a fight at home.’ But I’m very thankful that he’s here with me in the WWE so I get to travel with him. It’s been amazing.”
Favorite WWE Career Moment
“It was my first ever WrestleMania, so I had to do it big. I actually found out the Thursday before WrestleMania [that Snoop Dogg was rapping during my entrance], and I was like, ‘Wait, what?!’ I mean, it’s Snoop Dogg, he’s a legend. That was honestly one of the coolest moments of my career so far.”
