Sasha Banks on how she found out that she would headline WWE Hell in a Cell in 2016

Sasha Banks recently appeared on the We Have Cool Friends podcast where she spoke about a wide range of topics. 

Banks is slated to challenge WWE Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch for the strap at Sunday’s Hell in a Cell pay-per-view event in Sacramento, California at the Golden 1 Center. 

During the interview, she discussed how she found out that she was main eventing the 2016 Hell in a Cell PPV in a Hell in a Cell match against Charlotte Flair.

“I didn’t know we were main-eventing until the night before. I had an autograph signing in New York and me and Bayley luckily had a car service to Boston and I remember Charlotte calling me and she’s like, ‘Don’t tell anyone, but, they said we’re the main event’ and I was just like, ‘What!? Are you kidding me? In Boston? My hometown and the first-ever woman to main-event a pay-per-view. That’s crazy. Oh my gosh’. I was freaking out — just like, ‘Oh man’ and all the pressure is on.

You would think they [WWE creative] would be like, ‘Hey, are you comfortable? Are you okay? Can you do a ladder match?’ No. ‘Hey, can you take a chair shot?’ Uhh, sure. I’ll do it,” Sasha laughed with uncertainty. “How much money? Just kidding. You’re welcome Vince. We don’t know a lot of stuff until we get there and a lot of times we don’t have any say but it’s just like, it’s cool. It’s what I grew up watching so… the last pay-per-view when I took a chair, it sucked ass. It hurts so bad, but at the same time, like dude, I can’t believe I just got hit with a chair. This is so cool. It’s like a dream come true. Charlotte got my nose. She loves hitting my nose. I don’t even have a bone in this nose anymore. I broke it about six times. It sucks. I’ll get it fixed when I’m done.”
