Sasha Banks joins Kelley O’Hara to discuss how she went from WWE superfan to the first woman to ever headline a WWE pay-per-view event. 

Banks started reaching out to wrestling schools at just 13 years old, and after years of rejection, she finally started training at age 16. She talks with Kelley about climbing the ladder in a male-dominated sport, what life on the road is like, and how it feels to watch the landscape of female wrestling evolve to match her championship talents.

A former NXT Women’s Champion, Sasha is a multi-time Raw Women’s Champion, as well as one half of the first-ever WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions. This year, she made further history at WrestleMania 37, when she and Bianca Belair became the first African-American women to headline WrestleMania. 

A wrestler, an actress, and a singer, Banks shares the stories behind her-larger-than-life career while discussing what she still hopes to accomplish in and out of the ring.
