On episode 106 of Sam Roberts' Wrestling Podcast, WWE's Sasha Banks spoke about being scared of WWE Chairman Vince McMahon, needing more female talent on WWE Monday Night RAW, and with whom she would like to feud in the future.
"Hunter's Papa, so [McMahon] must be Granddaddy. I don't really get to talk to him too often because I am honestly very scared of him. I am honestly really scared of him. But when he walks by, I try to be cool. Yeah, 'hello, how are you, sir?' He's like, 'hello, yeah.' I'm like, 'we're good, right?' It's mostly just Papa Hunter that I talk to. I've known him since NXT. He [has] seen me since the beginning when I was a nobody, so he's my go-to guy if I ever need help or questions. Yeah, he's the man."
When asked whether all of WWE's female talent should have been kept on either RAW or SmackDown Live, Banks claimed that she is glad the women have been split up, but says they need more female performers.
"I think it's good that we're split and more opportunities can happen for women, but we really don't have enough women. Like, I wrestle the same people every single week, Dana Brooke or Charlotte, Charlotte, Dana Brooke. There [are] only six of us and I think that's the hardest part, just we need more faces on RAW."
In addition to looking forward to an eventual main roster feud with fellow Horsewoman Bayley, Banks said she would like to have a program with Natalya and many other women from SmackDown Live's roster.
"I think in due time [a Bayley feud will happen], but other than that, I mean, Natalya's on SmackDown, but I haven't really had a good feud with her and I would love to wrestle her. Naomi, Carmella, Alexa [Bliss], everyone that's on SmackDown. Dammit."
