"There’s only four people that I have ever gone to Mr. McMahon or to Triple H with whom I have said I put my reputation on. I put my job on the line once for Sasha Banks. She was somebody I went because I knew her, and my first thing on the job was to hire this lady. I said, 'If it doesn't work out, you can fire me'. She's not one of them. That was a separate thing".
When Regal was released by WWE in early January, Banks paid tribute to him by tweeting, 'There would be no Sasha Banks if it wasn't for @RealKingRegal thank you for giving me a chance and believing in me. Forever grateful'.
