Saraya Praises Sasha Banks For Knowing Her Worth & Taking Her Career Into Her Own Hands

"I just selfishly hope that I get to wrestle her one day."

AEW's Saraya has praised Sasha Banks for seeking opportunities outside of WWE. Speaking to Metro, Saraya said: 

 "I love the fact that she took her career into her own hands, and she knows her worth and she knows she wants to be treated a certain way, and she deserves to be treated that way because she’s done a lot for the wrestling business. She’s one of the girls that puts butts in seats, and you want to see wrestle and you wanna see main event. She deserves all those things."

Banks - real name Mercedes Varnado - is thought to be appearing at tomorrow's NJPW Wrestle Kingdom event, possibly to challenge for the recently-established IWGP Women's Championship, which will be on the line in a match between KAIRI and Tam Nakano. 

With regards to other potential destinations for Varnado, Saraya stated:

"Wherever she ends up, I'm gonna be happy for her, and anyone that gets her is gonna be very, very lucky. I just selfishly hope that I get to wrestle her one day."
