Sasha Banks recently spoke with Stuff while WWE was touring New Zealand, and had the following to say about the evolution of WWE’s women’s division in recent years:
“Five years ago we weren’t given this opportunity that we’re having now to be equal to the men. Just two years ago we were considered Divas, that was our brand name, and we had a championship that was in the shape of a butterfly. I was like ‘this is not us, we’re not divas, we’re superstars’. And so two years ago we changed that.
We have all different shapes, sizes, all different looks, and it’s so beautiful to see, because legit five years ago it was all models. Now, the sky’s the limit.”
WWE uploaded the following video featuring highlights from the Four Way Dance between Tajiri, Mikey Whipwreck, Little Guido and Psicosis at ECW Heat Wave 2000:
