Sasha Banks has had a considerable fall-from-grace in recent months in the WWE.

After a landmark 2016 where she captured the Raw Women's Championship no less than three times, she added to that with another reign in 2017, taking the belt off Alexa Bliss at SummerSlam.

In recent months though she has not been as prominent of a figure on our television screens, especially in the last few weeks.

There was lots of speculation regarding the reasoning for her absence, but she revealed earlier this week she was suffering from post-concussion symptoms, so took some time off.

Banks was a part of arguably the greatest ever women's match produced by WWE in 2015, when she was defeated by Bayley in an all-time classic at NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn.

That feud has been teased on the main roster countless times this year, and has included many pull-apart brawls.

But despite it being the feud the fans want to see, the two are getting along for now, and will team with Natalya in a six-woman tag match at the first-ever all-women's pay-per-view - Evolution - to take on the Riott Squad.

Sasha Banks has made a bold statement about her legacy in wrestling after a Sky Sports reporter asked her a question.

And when talking to Sky Sports prior to the event, Banks made the boldest of statements to the interview when she was asked if she thinks a woman can be the best wrestler in the world regardless of gender.

"I’m living proof - I am," responded Banks.

"I’m the greatest women’s wrestler this company has ever seen, and it’s going to take someone with a lot of hard work, dedication and passion to beat me."

That is some accolade to declare on yourself, Sasha.

Not everyone will agree with her words, the Attitude Era folk would probably side with someone like Lita, and even further back the likes of Fabulous Moolah were household names back in their era.

But she's clearly got a legion of fans who agree with every word she stated.
