Former WWE Raw Women’s Champion Sasha Banks isn’t someone to not speak her mind when it comes to something that she strongly believes in and the portraying of her character when it comes to promos is something that she is passionate about as that is part of her charter and presentation to the fans.
This comes at an important time for her as she is one of the biggest feuds of her career with the sports entertainment company as she is in a program with current Raw Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey.
While doing an interview on E&C’s Pod of Awesomeness podcast to talk with former WWE World Heavyweight Champion Christian and WWE Hall of Famer Edge, Banks reflected on getting changes to the script of her promo by WWE Chairman Vince McMahon from this past Monday’s episode of Raw.
“It felt good. For me, promos haven’t really been my best strong suit, but I feel like, as a I keep on getting older (which kind of sucks) the more mature I get and the more I actually think about what I say. I also feel like now as a performer, I’m not really scared to speak up when I’m giving a promo and that’s the beautiful thing about WWE. With them growing as well, if you get handed something and you have questions about it, I’m not scared about going to Vince [Mcmahon] at events and asking him to change it, to make it into my own words. For the past two weeks, I took liberty with that. The week before, I wasn’t supposed to say the ‘B Word,’ but it just kind of came out and I feel like that added to the promo, as well. So, you just kind of always have to apologize later, but if you’re doing the best you can to make the story better, I think it’s OK to do those things for the better of the story.”
