Sasha Banks Engages In Lightsaber Battle With Kevin Hart

Sasha Banks & Kevin Hart

Sasha Banks has become the latest celebrity to test herself against Kevin Hart in a lightsaber battle.

On May 17th, the new season of Kevin Hart’s “Cold As Balls: presented by Old Spice” kicked off. One of the celebrities featured on the new season is Sasha Banks.

On the show, Banks takes on the comedian in a lightsaber battle, an appropriate challenge considering her role as Koska Reeves in the Star Wars series “The Mandalorian.”

Other WWE stars who have appeared on the show include The Undertaker and The Bella Twins. The Undertaker famously losing an especially epic thumb wrestling war against the star.

Sasha Banks is currently the talk of the wrestling world after walking out of the May 16th episode of Monday Night Raw while it was in progress.

The Boss left the taping along with her tag team partner Naomi after a disagreement over creative. The Women’s Tag Team Champions had been scheduled to wrestle in the main event as part of a six-pack challenge to determine a new number one contender for Bianca Belair’s Raw Women’s Title.

After the walk out, the main event of the show was swiftly changed to singles bout between Becky Lynch and Asuka. The match was won by Asuka who will challenge Belair on June 5th at Hell In A Cell.

Meanwhile, WWE released a statement confirming that the Tag Team Champions had walked out.

“When Sasha Banks and Naomi arrived at the arena this afternoon, they were informed of their participation in the main event of tonight’s Monday Night Raw.

“During the broadcast, they walked into WWE Head of Talent Relations John Laurinaitis’ office with their suitcases in hand, placed their tag team championship belts on his desk and walked out.

“They claimed they weren’t respected enough as tag team champions. And even though they had eight hours to rehearse and construct their match, they claimed they were uncomfortable in the ring with two of their opponents – even though they’d had matches with those individuals in the past with no consequence.

“Monday Night Raw is a scripted live TV show, whose characters are expected to perform the requirements of their contract.

“We regret we were unable to deliver, as advertised, tonight’s main event.”

Corey Graves later described the pair as “unprofessional” on commentary.
