- Above is video of WWE NXT interviewer Alicia Taylor talking to Sasha Banks and Bayley at this week's RAW in Orlando. As noted, Banks defeated Nia Jax to become the new #1 contender to RAW Women's Champion Ronda Rousey for a showdown at the Royal Rumble. Taylor asked Banks how she plans on being prepared for Rousey.
"I don't plan on being prepared because I'm always ready," Banks said. "I was born ready, I was born to do this, and I say that all the time. You know, I prove every single week that I am legit the boss around here, and I'm going to prove to Ronda Rousey why she thinks I'm the best in the world, because everybody already knows that I am."
