Sasha Banks made her first appearance on the Disney+ series ‘The Mandalorian’ recently, crossing the border from WWE to Star Wars.
However, the launch date was significant for the SmackDown Women’s Champion.
Speaking with USA Today, Banks spoke of the universe coming full circle for her 15 years after Eddie Guerrero’s death.
On 13th November 15 years ago, my hero Eddie Guerrero passed away. So I’ve always thought about the date as something that was really terrible in my life, but I used it to fuel my passion and to really just create a legacy for myself. It’s so crazy how the universe is working kind of full circle for me right now.
Banks, real name Mercedes Vernado, plays the role of Koska Reeves in The Mandalorian.
In the interview she discussed how it was the person behind her Sasha Banks character who did the work to get these opportunities.
I’m so thankful for the role of playing Sasha Banks for so long, but it took Mercedes Varnado to put in that work, and it took Mercedes to get through those doors of the WWE and to be able to do Star Wars. I’m just so excited to show the world exactly who I am.
Now for the important question – what’s cooler, Sasha’s sunglasses or Koska’s helmet?
Definitely my Legit Boss sunglasses. But both of them have their limitations. I mean, with my sunglasses I can barely see, that’s why I take them off so fast.
