Sasha Banks Profile
Mercedes Justine Kaestner-Varnado, better known by her ring name Sasha Banks, is an American professional wrestler who currently occupies the SmackDown Women’s Champion title in her first reign. Signing for WWE in 2012, Banks was allocated the NXT brand and made history in doing so. In 2015, the pro wrestler faced Bayley at NXT TakeOver which was the first women’s match to headline at the event and the first Iron Woman match in WWE history.
Standing at a height of 5’5” and related to famous rapper Snoop Dogg, Banks has made a name for herself in the world of entertainment. In 2015, Banks was voted as Woman of the Year for her outstanding wrestling performances. Five years later, the American wrestler was named the Wrestler of the Year by Sports Illustrated, while BW 500 named her as the top black wrestler in the world.
Mid-way through 2015, Banks was promoted to the WWE’s main roster, where she would go on to hold the Raw Women’s Championship five times. The following year, herself and Charlotte Flair became the first women to headline a WWE pay-per-view event and the first to compete in a Hell in the Cell match. In 2020, Banks won the Smackdown Women’s Championship and became the third-ever WWE Women’s Grand Slam Champion.
