Speaking ahead of her clash with Bianca Belair at WrestleMania 37, WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion Sasha Banks has outlined her plans to take her “rightful place” in the WWE Hall of Fame.
During her conversation with The Root, Sasha Banks was asked about her future plans, to which she she explained she wanted to become the youngest person to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.
“The next thing I want to do is go into my rightful place in the [WWE] Hall of Fame next year,” she said. “I feel like I earned that, I deserved that, and why not accomplish that goal? Next year I’ll be 30, so I’ll be the youngest.”
The Boss also had some words for her WrestleMania rival, the winner of the 2021 Royal Rumble Match, Bianca Belair.
Banks played up her challenger’s relative inexperience, explaining that the whole WrestleMaina stage would be new to Belair.
“This is new to her that she’s going to face a star so bright. She’s just coming out of NXT, this is her first year on the main roster. If she would’ve listened to me, she would’ve walked into WrestleMania as the Women’s Tag Team champion, but she didn’t want to. She got a big head, she got a long braid, but come WrestleMania 37 I’m gonna show her what she already knows: That I’m the boss, the blueprint, and the standard for the women’s division.”
Meanwhile, away from WrestleMania, NXT General Manager William Regal has revealed that he put his job on the line to hire Banks. Regal explained that he told WWE they could fire him if the signing didn’t work out.
