In recent months Sasha Banks has become the latest WWE Superstar to cross over into the world of television appearing in the Star Wars TV series The Mandalorian. The move marked her acting debut, with the show receiving acclaim across the board. While it remains to be seen whether Sasha Banks will be making similar appearances in the future, it’s a future that seemingly won’t include reality TV.
In a new interview with Stephanie Chase, “The Boss” has ruled out getting involved with reality television including Total Divas. While acknowledging the good that the show has done in raising the profile of WWE’s female performers, Banks doesn’t feel that the show is for her.
“I don’t think ‘Total Divas’ is a place for me. I don’t really want to do reality TV, but I think ‘Total Divas’ is a great thing for the WWE universe and has brought in so many new eyes within the company from celebrities. Being on after The Kardashians has brought in so many female viewers within the company. Personally, for me, I don’t want to be on reality TV,”
Total Divas premiered in July 2013 and has been a mainstay on E! ever since, with a total of 9 seasons airing up until December of 2019.The show has been credited with bringing new eyes to the WWE product, especially among women who may normally not have an interest in regular WWE programming. The shows success has lead to two spin-offs in the form Total Bellas featuring Nikki and Brie Bella, and Mz & Mrs following the lives of The Miz and his wife Maryse.
While the list of women who have appeared on the show is extensive, it is perhaps interesting to note that none of the much lauded “Four Horsewomen” including Banks, have ever appeared on the show.
