WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion, Sasha Banks, has made the surprising declaration that she is better than Roman Reigns.
Ahead of her champion vs. champion clash with Asuka at WWE Survivor Series on November 22, ‘The Boss’ spoke to Bleacher Report about how she sees herself within the company and being on the same level or above that of the company’s current champions Roman Reigns and Drew McIntyre:
“I’m not afraid to let people know that I’m better than Roman Reigns. I really am. I’m the face of SmackDown. I’m better than Drew McIntyre. I am. There are facts; you can look at the science and the numbers. I am the face of the company. I am the best and that’s just who I am. I’m a legit boss. I’m here to be the greatest, I’m here to make a legacy and I’m here to make so much history and create change and create magic, and I already know that I’m doing that right now.”
With another clash against ‘The Empress of Tomorrow’ on the horizon at WWE elimination extravaganza, Banks looked forward to the bout and explained how she loved her foe’s style:
“Any time I can face Asuka, I am so down because of her style and her creativity and her mindset. I’ve always been a huge fan of the joshi style and that was always a big dream of mine: to go to Japan and learn that style. To get a little taste of that with her is so awesome for me because it gets my ‘little girl’ heart so excited. I feel like any time we get in the ring, it’s not the same match and it’s never really the same style, and that’s what I really love about her.
I think our styles mesh really well with each other because she’s technical, she knows submissions and she can fly as well,” she said of her in-ring chemistry with Asuka. “I can do all those things, but I am Sasha Banks and I can put that Bank Statement out of nowhere. I think at Survivor Series, it’s going to be another classic between Banks and Asuka.”
Sasha Banks will battle Asuka at WWE Survivor Series in a clash of WWE’s SmackDown and Raw Women’s Champions.
