Sasha Banks on her match with Charlotte at SummerSlam, the brand extension, NXT



WWE Women’s Champion Sasha Banks recently spoke with Slam Sports to promote Sunday’s WWE SummerSlam pay-per-view event. Here are the highlights.

On her transition from NXT to the main roster: "It was a struggle at first when we got brought up (to Raw)," Banks said. "This Divas Revolution didn't have that great, great start that I wanted (it) to, but I knew with time that we would get it to where we wanted to be."

On her match with Charlotte at SummerSlam: "I'm definitely excited heading into SummerSlam with Charlotte to have the fans talk about it again, what women's wrestling can do," Banks said proudly. "I'm definitely looking forward to this match and I'm nervous but really excited. I'm here to be the best and I'm here to show the world why I am the best."

On the Brand Extension: "I think it's a good opportunity for women," Banks said. "With all of us on the same roster, it was very hard to fight for time. We were barely given any time. Just on Raw, which is a three-hour show, we were given like two minutes, three minutes. Now that we're both on separate brands, we saw this week, there was two women's matches on SmackDown, the week before there were two segments of women's matches. I think it's a great opportunity. I'm hoping that they get a women's title for SmackDown and the women's division can fight for that. Our division is going to keep on growing and growing. With me as champion, I'm definitely going to show what our division is about. I think it's a great opportunity for groups of women because both women on both sides are amazing competitors."

Banks also talked about the current state of NXT and more. You can read the entire interview here.
