One AEW star has their sights set on the future and says that they plan to one day mix it up in the ring with Sasha Banks.
The future of Sasha Banks is currently up in the air after The Boss – along with Naomi – walked out of WWE Monday Night Raw in May 2022. Since then conflicting reports have suggested at different times that Banks could be done with WWE or that she will return now the company is under the management of Triple H.
One woman that hopes to compete with Banks again in the future is recent AEW signing Saraya. Saraya will compete in her first match in almost five years at Full Gear when she takes on Dr. Britt Baker DMD. The reason Saraya has missed so much time in the ring was due to an injury caused at a live event when the English star faced off with Banks in a six-woman tag team match.
Speaking on Insight with Chris Van Vliet, Saraya explained that while she’s excited to face off with Britt Baker, she still has her sights set on a rematch somewhere with Sasha Banks:
“So I really wanted to have that match for Sasha. Like I wanted to have that rematch with her, because we have a built-in story you know, so I really wanted that. But she’s kind of going down her own path and stuff now, doing her own thing. You don’t know where she’s going to be. She has an exciting life going on right now, I’m very pleased and she’s building her career outside of wrestling too, you know, awesome. And Naomi. So it’s really really cool to see.”
“But I get to face Britt too, who I’ve always wanted to face, and then in this brand new company as well. And the crazy part is that she’s always been a big fan of mine. I’ve seen the interviews Britt, I’ve seen them all, she was a fan of mine so it’s kind of cool that I get to have like a comeback story with her, and she’s so supportive. So I’m excited. I’m excited to have that match. One day I’ll have that match with Sasha, though.”
