Sasha Banks’ initial reaction to Ronda Rousey joining WWE was not positive

Speaking on the CBS Sports “In This Corner” podcast, former WWE Women’s Champion Sasha Banks became the latest lady to give her seal of approval to Ronda Rousey. The former UFC Champion has settled well into World Wrestling Entertainment and despite being a pro wrestling rookie, Rousey has received nothing but praise since joining the company.



In the interview, “The Boss” mentions how her initial reaction to Rousey joining WWE was lukewarm, but that perception has now changed:

“When I first heard she was going to be here I was a bit like, ‘That’s not really fair. But she has proven that she belongs and I’m really excited for her to be here with us. Man, I’m a big fan of her.”

Banks also added:

“To me, when I watch that match at Money in the Bank, I believed every single thing that she took. I believed that she was in pain and probably she really was. She was entertaining. For me, I feel like she gets it, and I think it’s because she was a fan growing up. She knows what our audience wants to see, and she makes me feel everything that she’s going through. I think that’s one of the hardest things about being a WWE superstar, which is making people feel whether she’s hurt or not.”

Rousey’s WWE experiment has gone near perfectly so far, so how would you guys feel about a future feud between “The Legit Boss” and “The Baddest Woman on the Planet” or perhaps The Boss’ feud with Bayley will still be ongoing thing in the coming years.
