WWE star Sasha Banks recently spoke to Peter Rosenburg on Complex’s Open Late. Banks touched on Ronda Rousey’s emergence in WWE and her initial feelings on the former UFC women’s bantamweight champion’s move to professional wrestling.
Originally, Banks felt that bringing in someone like Rousey would be a distraction for WWE. Now, however, her opinion has changed with time. Banks praised Rousey’s work ethic and desire to improve, and even said she’s ready for a match with “The Rowdy One”:
“I’m ready for her,” Banks said on wanting to face Rousey. “Especially knowing her now I would be more than happy to have a match with her. I think she’s awesome I think we could make magic together and I have don’t have anything bad to say about her.
“When I first found out that she was going to come [to WWE] I was like ‘ugh we don’t need that taking away from what we’re doing but she helps so much she works so hard. She always wants to learn and she loves it and respects it, and you know, I appreciate that. She works very hard.”
