Sasha Banks is a former three-time Raw Women’s Champion and a former NXT Women’s Champion whilst Alexa Bliss boasts being a former two-time SmackDown Women’s Champion and was switched over to Raw and easily able to take the Championship from Bayley a few months ago.
It seems that both of these women have pedigree and are able to claim they are the best on Raw right now, but it seems that their hatred of each other could run much deeper than their current problems on Raw.
Sasha Banks recently took part in an interview on the Fallout episode of Raw where she mentioned that she had known Alexa since she was down in NXT and that she was a snake.
The video can be viewed below:
The problem here is the fact that all Sasha’s encounters with Alexa when she was on NXT was when she was a face. Alexa turned heel whilst Sasha was still a heel and The Boss then left NXT as a tweener when she dropped the title to Bayley and failed to recapture it in their Ironwoman match at NXT Takeover: Respect.
There have been rumors for a while the the duo don’t like each other after Sasha made comments about Alexa on social media and now the duo don’t even follow each other on Twitter and have instead decided to build their match up for Sunday by indirectly posting tweets about each other.
Jealousy could be the fuel to this entire situation that was thought to have started when Sasha broke Alexa’s nose in a match in NXT a number of years ago, but these two women have to fight it out in two days time, so they will need to find a way to get along.
