WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion, Sasha Banks, has opened up about her goal to replace Vince McMahon as ‘The Boss’ of World Wrestling Entertainment.
Speculation as to who will replace McMahon once he finally steps down as CEO of WWE has been rife for several years now. Some cite that it will be son-in-law who takes the throne. Others state that his children, Shane and Stephanie will inherit the family business.
However, if Sasha Banks has her way, then she would love to replace the man who pays her wages as the head of the biggest wrestling company in the world today.
In an interview with Stephanie Chase, the WWE Grand Slam Champion stated in no uncertain terms what her overall goal was:
“To be a shareholder in the WWE, maybe take over Vince’s job. [It] is a dream of mine to be a general manager, make billions. There’s just so much more to do. In WWE, you can absolutely be anything and everything, so my goals are not stopping here just because I’m the Grand Slam Champion.”
Once Banks had highlighted her overall goal, the interview moved on to the star’s recent championship victory at WWE Hell in a Cell 2020 and she was asked if winning the blue brand’s gold was as special as her first or any other title triumph:
“Yes! It was because SmackDown has always been one of my favorite shows. It’s where my favorites where I grew up watching them on, and I always wanted to be on SmackDown,” revealed Banks. “To be the SmackDown Women’s Champion and to definitely take it from someone I did respect at one point in Bayley has been amazing. I just have a lot of plans for this title as well – just wanting it to be the most prestigious and most talked about title in the company.”
Currently on WWE television, Sasha Banks is locked in a rivalry over her prize with Carmella and Bayley and defeated Asuka at WWE Survivor Series in a champion vs. champion clash.
