Sasha Banks Talks Accidentally Hitting Vince McMahon Backstage The Night Of Her RAW Debut, Triple H

On a recent episode of Talk Is Jericho, current NXT Women's Champion Sasha Banks talked about Triple H's commitment to the future of professional wrestling and his involvement in the Divas Revolution. Also, Banks told a story about meeting Vince McMahon for the first time.

In the interview, Banks stated that Triple H "cares so much about the future" of professional wrestling and women's wrestling in particular. Banks said that Triple H is the reason that the female wrestlers get so much TV time and that she is afraid to let him down.

"We definitely don't want to let him down and we haven't," Banks said. "Every [NXT] Takeover, I have a little breakdown because I just don't want [WWE brass] to be like, 'this is the match, this is why [the Divas division] can't have time."

During the interview, Banks called meeting Vince McMahon for the first time a very nerve-racking experience and noted that he still scared her.

According to Banks, the night of her RAW debut, she accidentally hit McMahon backstage when she was talking with her hands while explaining something to her Team BAD partners, Naomi and Tamina. "And I was like, 'oh my God!' He's [Vince] like, 'are you guys excited [for Team BAD's debut]? Are you guys ready for this?'," Banks explained. "He's so intimidating!" she added.

In a wide ranging interview, Banks and Jericho talked about the late great Eddie Guerrero, how Banks came up with 'the Boss' gimmick, and many other topics. Click here to check out the entire podcast.
