WWE RAW 7/25/16 | Sasha Banks wins the Women’s Championship

Brian Joel July 25, 2016 2

I’m a huge Sasha Banks fan.

No, you don’t understand — I’m a HUGE Sasha Banks fan.

I’m such a fan that she’s the only person I wanted to see this year at WrestleMania Axxess in Dallas. When her session ended before I was anywhere near meeting her, I didn’t see it as a wasted day at all; I’d rather have spent the day hoping to meet her than actually meeting anyone else. At least I’d be live at WrestleMania to see her win the Women’s Championship, right?

Yeah, about that…

When she didn’t win the title at WrestleMania, I said “Why the fuck did Charlotte of all people win?! It’s not her time.”

Sasha Banks’ time is now.

She’s been able to establish the ‘Legit Boss’ on the main roster and break away from only being known for her work in NXT. She didn’t have much character development going into WrestleMania, and as much as the mark in me would’ve loved to be there to witness her winning the title in person, in some ways her victory on RAW is more satisfying.

Check out the video below as I talk about why Sasha Banks was a superstar long before WWE ever gave fans the “permission” to call her one:


  • SASHA DID IT!!!! Best WWE moment of the summer (Year?) (Ever?). I don’t know if I’ve ever been so genuinely happy and proud for a wrestler to win a championship and also freak out about it at the same time. Jay, this is like our version of the Cleveland Cavaliers finally winning a championship, haha. Even better than that. Not gonna think about Charlotte, Nia, or a possible injury, nope. She got this moment, we got this moment and for one night, despite the demons that may lurk, all is well in the WWE Universe.

    A few things: 1) Sasha’s strut to the ring is just…. So much character and personality in a freaking walk. Maybe it’s not even those things, maybe it’s just that IT/X factor that she has. That allure. 2) Becky really should’ve won at WrestleMania 32 or Charlotte could’ve at least retained in a better fashion. 3) Byron Saxon needs to back the heck up when the Boss is having the biggest moment of her career. Wish he got drafted to the pre-show.

      Yes!! I’m not a sports fan, but I know what it feels like now, lmao
