Saraya: I’ve Always Said That I Would Want To Work With Sasha Banks Again, She’s Fantastic

Saraya acknowledges the rumors surrounding Sasha Banks‘ future and notes that there are number of exciting options for her mystery partner.

As announced during the December 7 episode of AEW Dynamite, Saraya will join forces with a mystery partner to face Britt Baker and Jamie Hayter on the January 11 episode of AEW Dynamite. Fans started speculating about the potential identity of this individual, and some of them have wondered whether it will be Banks. On December 8, Mike Johnson of PWInsider reported that Banks is expected to be at NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 17 in January, and this development led to more speculation that Banks could be on her way to AEW.

In an interview with Alfred Konuwa for Forbes, Saraya addressed this reaction and noted that fans always jump to Banks whenever there’s a mystery.

“I feel like anytime there’s a mystery, everyone always goes straight for Mercedes (laughs). They’re like—straight away—it’s her!” said Saraya. “There’s plenty of women out there, I’m not going to say yes or no to anybody, but there’s a lot of exciting prospects for a potential tag partner.”

Saraya also emphasized that she has always said she’d like to work with Banks again. She praised the former WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion’s talent.

“I’ve always said that I would want to work with Sasha again in any capacity, because she’s a pro. In the wrestling side of things, she’s such a fantastic athlete, you can’t deny her talent. She’s fantastic.”

In a recent interview, Saraya stated that she wants to face Banks again. Check out her comments here.
