Sasha Banks has received some high praise by one former WWE Champion.
Prior to signing with WWE, she wrestled on the indie scene and most notably for Chaotic Wrestling, where she once held the Chaotic Wrestling Women's Championship. She signed with WWE and placed in their developmental brand, NXT, in 2012.
Her match against Bayley at NXT TakeOver: Respect on October 7, 2015 was the first women's match to ever headline a major WWE event, the first women's Iron Man match, and the longest women's match in WWE history at the time with a length of 30 minutes.
In 2016, she and Charlotte Flair became the first women to headline a WWE pay-per-view event and the first to compete in a Hell in a Cell match (both at Hell in a Cell in October 2016), the first women to main event Raw in a women's match since 2004.
Between WWE and NXT, Banks has had five championship reigns – being a former NXT Women's Champion and a record-tying four-time Raw Women's Champion.
Former WWE Champion Seth Rollins recently participated in a live periscope where he answered fans questions. One of the questions that he was asked was about his relationship with Banks. Here is what he had to say:
“One of the best women’s wrestlers of all time. Best wrestlers of all time really, don’t even have to put woman in front of it”
Banks’ next match on WWE PPV is already lined up as she will team with Alicia Fox, Bayley, and two other Superstars to take on Becky Lynch, Carmella, Tamina Snuka, Naomi, and Charlotte Flair in Female 5-on-5 Traditional Survivor Series Elimination Match.
