After Sasha Banks and Bayley dropped the WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles to The IIconics at WrestleMania 35, Sasha Banks disappeared from WWE programming.
The Boss recently returned to Raw, and she quickly turned heel then kicked off a feud with Becky Lynch.
During an appearance on WFNZ, Sasha talked about her time away from WWE and why she took a break.
“I’ve been doing this for seven years straight, no breaks. People need to step back, re-evaluate their lives, take care of their souls, and their minds. I’m back and better than ever. I got myself a championship match on Sunday, so I think I did quite well for myself.”
Next week NXT is set to go live on Wednesday nights on the USA Network, and NXT is a brand that Banks is very familiar with.
“I mean it’s so crazy, it gives me goosebumps. I just can’t believe it. NXT is its own brand. They’re just really taking over and I’m so proud to be part of it. Just seeing the growth here and there I saw at the performance center how many potential starts we have in the making. It’s just cool that there’s NXT on USA, where the whole world can see them now.”
Sasha Banks will challenge Becky Lynch for the Raw Women’s Championship at Clash of Champions on Sunday, September 15.
