Sasha Banks has spoken about the influence WWE Hall of Famer Trish Stratus has had on her career both inside and outside of the ring.
During a recent appearance on Table Talk w/DVon, Banks was asked who she would want to wrestle at an Evolution 2 event. The 28-year-old said that Trish Stratus would be at the top of her list.
“If can choose anybody? Ahhh!! Trish Stratus. I would lose my mind.” Banks said. “Definitely. If It wasn’t Eddie Guerrero, it’s going to be Trish Stratus because she was just the top of the women’s division of her time. She was just the best, she was beautiful, she was athletic, and she killed it, and inspired me,”
“It’s so funny. I have a bunch of her stuff, and I remembered going to the Eddie Guerrero tribute show and she had this pink shirt on. I saw that shirt at a store the next week and I’m like, ‘I need that shirt because Trish Stratus had that shirt!’ And I would always do the finger point when I was a kid and it was always like, Trish Stratus was always the one. When I finally got to meet her and work with her, I mean, I just fell more in love with her. She is the most amazing, beautiful human being I’ve ever met, and not only she inspired me in the ring, but she also inspires me for what she does outside of the ring as well.” she continued.
Banks went on to speak about how Stratus’ storyline with Mickie James during the mid-2000s is what made her realize she could one day achieve her own dreams in the WWE.
“Having that storyline with Mickie James. When I saw that storyline when I was a kid, I knew that right then and there, my dreams can come true in the WWE.” Banks said.
