Sasha Banks is a former WWE Raw Women’s Champion and she’s been a big player in the women’s division ever since she got called up to the main roster a few years go.
But in order to make it on the main roster you need to have a good relationship with Vince McMahon, and in the past Sasha Banks has said that she’s intimidated by Vince. However, during a recent interview with Al Arabiya English, The Boss indicated that their relationship has come a long way.
“It is [different]. It comes with growing up, becoming more mature and becoming a woman. You have this more comfortable feeling of, ‘ok, you work for the boss, you work for the man, a legend, Vince McMahon, but hey, you’re the Legit Boss, so you better go through that door, tell him what you’d like to do and what you’d like to have’,” Banks said.
It seems that the backstage dynamic has changed for Banks as she says that she’s less intimidated by Vince McMahon and she finds it easier to go directly to him when she has issues.
“Honestly, that’s the biggest thing—not being afraid to stand up for yourself. If you’re very passionate about something, he’s the man to talk to. I’ve learned that it’s actually very easy to talk to him, and it’s so much better for me to talk to him than to talk to writers, because you get the right answer, and you get the answer right away. You kind of understand what he wants from you as a performer. It’s been so much easier talking to him, and I feel less intimidated. A lot of times, when it comes to whether we’re handed a promo that I’m not really feeling, or trying to figure out what the story—if we don’t know what we’re doing, it’s hard to perform. Recently we asked him, ‘hey, where are we going with this storyline? Can you tell me what direction you’d like to see me go?’ Getting the answer right from him straight up makes it so much easier.”
