The once-powerful trio of Charlotte, Summer Rae and Sasha Banks is no more. As the WWE Universe has witnessed on NXT, the BFFs have all gone their separate ways. Charlotte reigns supreme as the NXT Womenâ€™s Champion, and Summer Rae has transcended her notoriety from Raw and SmackDown to leap onto the silver screen with â€śThe Marine 4.â€ť But what about Sasha Banks? The cornerstone of the BFFs has found herself on a singular path in the pursuit of success. This week, The Boss sits down with WWE.com to discuss the BFFs, her future and NXT. Some of her comments may surprise you!
WWE.COM: What are your honest feelings about the breakup of the BFFs?
SASHA: I’m glad to be rid of them. They were like leeches, living off of my hard work. I’m the one who put in all of the hours, all of the blood, sweat and tears that made the BFFs the dominant group we were, and they’re the ones who received all the glory. It’s about time I grabbed that shine for myself.
WWE.COM: What are your thoughts on Charlotteâ€™s reign as NXT Women’s Champion?
SASHA: Bravo for her. Iâ€™m happy sheâ€™s got something to fool herself into believing that sheâ€™s the best around here. But if I have anything to say about it, she won’t have that championship for long.
WWE.COM: What about Summer Rae?
SASHA: What about her? Every time I hear about something new that Summer has thrown her way, I feel like the knife she left in my back is sliding deeper. She fed me all this nonsense about how siding with her would lead to all of those same opportunities for myself, yet nothing has come of it. She just used my talents to get herself ahead. Personally, if I were Layla, I’d be sleeping with my eyes open.
WWE.COM: With all due respect, some critics have said you’ve been in the shadow of Summer and Charlotte.
SASHA: And just who are these critics? Have they walked in my shoes? Do they know what Iâ€™m all about? Itâ€™s really easy to sit behind a computer screen and critique something or someone you know nothing about. You wanna call it living in their shadows? I call it striking at the right moment. This isnâ€™t a sprint, itâ€™s a marathon, and all those same haters are gonna be kissing the ground I walk on sooner than later.
WWE.COM: So just who, exactly, is Sasha Banks?
SASHA: I’m the Diva that’s going to change the whole division. I’m the one that everyone will be paying to see. I’m a B.O.S.S.: Built On Self-Success.
