Sasha Banks Talks About WWE Women’s Division, Ronda Rousey, More

Former Raw Women’s Champion Sasha Banks recently spoke with Stuff while promoting upcoming WWE events in Australia and New Zealand. Here are some of the highlights:

On the WWE Women’s Division changing over time:

“Just two years ago we were considered Divas, that was our brand name, and we had a championship that was in the shape of a butterfly. I was like ‘This is not us, we’re not Divas, we’re Superstars.’ And so two years ago we changed that. We have all different shapes, sizes, all different looks, and it’s so beautiful to see, because legit five years ago it was all models.”

On women’s evolution in sports:

“From Ronda Rousey, to the US soccer team, to Serena Williams, women are just killing it in sports around the world. Five years ago we weren’t given this opportunity that we’re having now to be equal to the men.”
