On January 25, 2021, WWE’s Chief Brand Officer Stephanie McMahon spoke to The Wrap, touching on how Sasha Banks’ Mandalorian tenure impacted her as an in-ring performer. “Sasha’s star only continues to rise. I think that experience for her gave her a different set of confidence that maybe she didn’t have before,” McMahon said, going on to give Banks a bit of well deserved praise. “Sasha is one of our biggest stars with some of the best charisma and potential. And on top of her athleticism and her storytelling abilities, she just shines. When she walks out, you pay attention. I love her attitude and just everything about her.
McMahon concluded her comments by saying, “I think Sasha is really just getting started,” and looking back on her career, so far, it’s hard to disagree. In addition to making waves in the Star Wars universe, she has already secured five WWE Raw Women’s Championships, two WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships, one WWE NXT Women’s Championship, and is the current WWE Smackdown Women’s Champion, as of this writing. Not to mention she has put on countless classic matches that led her to become Sports Illustrated‘s 2020 Wrestler of the Year (yup, that’s an actual thing). At only 29 years of age, the sky is the limit for Sasha Banks — in the ring, on the set of The Mandalorian, and everywhere in-between.
