In 2016 Charlotte and Sasha Banks dominated the women’s division on Raw. Their feud went on for quite a while and the Raw Women’s Championship changed hands often throughout their rivalry. That didn’t sit well with some fans out there who thought that all the title changes got out of hand.
Sasha Banks recently spoke to The Mirror and she addressed the negative reactions and she noted that all the title changes prove anything can happen in the WWE.
“Absolutely. The hot potato on that too, the same goes for SmackDown, that title has already changed three times as well. Fans can complain all they want but they are still watching every week because they want to see what’s next, we have them on the edge of their seat and they never know what is coming. That’s what’s so great about WWE, we are here to entertain you, we are here to make you watch with a mystery eye, like what’s going to happen. Even when I show up on Raw I have no idea what is going to happen, they surprise me as well. Raw is the better brand, I was the better champion and when I want to reclaim that championship, I will.”
Sasha Banks is one of the top names on Raw, and a top name from the past recently returned when Mickie James joined the SmackDown brand. Although James and Banks are on two different shows for now, the three time Raw Women’s Champion made it clear that she hopes to face off against Mickie James in the future.
“Oh yeah, absolutely, I was actually quite jealous to find out Mickie was going to SmackDown, I was like ‘damn I really want to wrestle her’. But it wasn’t to be and anything can happen, hopefully after the next draft our paths cross because she is definitely someone I would like to get in the ring with. The same goes for Naomi and Natalya, there are so many women I feel like I haven’t really had the opportunity yet to have great matches with yet. That’s what the future is for and keeping you guys on your toes again! Mickie James is an absolute legend, she is great.”
