10 Things We Learned From Sasha Banks On Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Sessions
“I’m on the chopping block, and I cannot get fired from this place that I grew up watching my whole life”.
That's how Sasha Banks felt back in 2013. At the time, she was just another aspiring female worker hoping to graft her way up the WWE food chain, but that didn't look possible. So, Banks started panicking about what it'd be like if the company put her on the scrap heap; where would she go, and what would she do?
Both Tyler Breeze and Xavier Woods stepped in to help her out. Together, the trio came up with a list of five different characters that Sasha could present to management. Amazingly, her 'Legit Boss’ gimmick was the first one, and it was heavily inspired by her cousin Snoop Dogg. Sadly, WWE officials weren't very keen on it.
Dusty Rhodes was.
'Dream' was the only one at NXT who got it. Thinking back to his support made Sasha cry on Austin's show. She'll never forget how determined he was to let her fly, and says she started finding things easier after that. Finally, she had a proper gimmick to focus on.
