Sasha Banks Talks About Wanting to Face Asuka, Differences Between NXT and The Main Roster, More

Former Raw Women’s Champion Sasha Banks appeared on the Sam Roberts Wrestling podcast to talk about various topics. Here are the highlights (h/t Wrestling Inc):

On differences between NXT and the main roster:

“I think that’s what’s different about NXT too. We kind of always knew where we were going, so it helped me prepare and think of ahead of time, like, ‘how can I make this better?’. But when I go to RAW, it’s legit, like, ‘I have no clue what I’m doing.’ I don’t even know what to prepare for. I’m just, like, handed something or told something. And I was like, ‘okay, I have one hour to get ready. Oh, okay. Alright. Let’s just do it!’ So, honestly, I wish we had the opportunity to know what we’re doing in the next three months. If we’re going with a storyline, I would like to know, ‘yeah, we’re going with you and Alexa [Bliss] and this is where we want to take it and where we want to go’ instead of just being, ‘oh, maybe you’ll have a tag match. Maybe you’ll have a promo. Maybe you’ll have this random match that doesn’t make any sense or whatever. Who knows? Or maybe you’ll just sit in catering. Who knows?’”

On wanting to face Asuka:

“I feel like the women’s division down there hasn’t really [taken] off the way that I would have liked it [to] have, like it should have been. And I would love to face Asuka. I mean, I don’t understand why she’s the longest reigning champion because I’m not down there. But they have so many incredible women down there and I just wish they were used more. That’s what I have to say about that.”
