NXT UNIVERSE: If you could wrestle any Diva from the past, who would it be?

SASHA: There are so many Divas who have come and gone who have left their mark in WWE: Ivory, Jazz, Lita, etc. … Ric Flair says, “To be the man, you gotta beat the man,” so if I had to choose one, it’d be the Diva who most people would consider the greatest Diva of all time, Trish Stratus. The only reason I’d choose her is because I know in my heart that I can put her down.

NXT UNIVERSE: What is it like working on NXT with so many talented people around you?

SASHA: Talented people? You mean Summer and Charlotte? Well, my BFFs are the most talented girls I know, besides me, of course. We complement each other in every way. Everyone else just isn’t on our level.

Learn more about the BFFs.

NXT UNIVERSE: What's the key aspect to becoming a WWE Superstar?

SASHA: Everyone thinks being a WWE Superstar is all about the moves you do and the way you talk. But it takes hard work and dedication toward the little things that make you a great Superstar. You need to have the will to reach your limit, then shatter it. Because in this world, no matter how many miles you run, there’s still a million more miles to go.

NXT UNIVERSE: Who are some of your favorite K-pop (Korean pop music) artists and groups?

SASHA: There are too many to count. I love Rain and Big Bang, especially Taeyang and G-Dragon. “Ringa Linga” by Taeyang is currently in rotation on my iPod.

NXT UNIVERSE: Would you call yourself the “devil Diva” of NXT? Why or why not?

SASHA: Um … No! What the heck is a “devil Diva?” I’m “The Boss” of NXT. Learn it, respect it, remember it!

NXT UNIVERSE: Why did you choose to pursue a career in sports-entertainment?

SASHA: Simple. It’s all I ever wanted to do. I was meant to be in WWE. Growing up, I knew kids who wanted to be doctors and lawyers. Because Snoop Dogg is my cousin, I was pressured into pursuing music and acting but I never had those kinds of dreams. I only dreamt of being a sports entertainer. It was and is the greatest form of entertainment in my mind.

NXT UNIVERSE: Who could you see yourself facing on the main WWE roster?

BANKS: My goal is to win the Divas Championship. Anyone who stands in my way is fair game.
