- Above is video of Sasha Banks and Bayley talking to Dasha Fuentes after last night's WWE RAW main event win over RAW Women's Champion Ronda Rousey and Natalya. Dasha asked Banks how confident she is going into Sunday's Royal Rumble match with Rousey.
"What? Did you not see me tap out her training partner, the person that taught her how to wrestle?," Banks asked. "Do you think I'm ready? No, let me ask you, Dasha, do you think I'm ready? Ronda Rousey wants to say that because of her we're a part of the main event. Did you hear her say that? Because of her? No, because of us, she's in the WWE."
Bayley chimed in and said they made the division for Ronda to join. Banks said she's going to teach Rousey a lesson on Sunday.
