Sasha Banks on her WWE Grand Slam Champion Achievement
Branks said the following in an interview after winning the title. "Like I said on Friday, I came, I saw and tonight, I conquered," Banks said.
"I defeated the longest-reigning SmackDown Women's Champion in history, my former best friend, Bayley. Now Bayley was an incredible champion, she was the longest-reigning, she was a Grand Slam Champion, she's the first-ever Grand Slam Champion, but tonight I just proved once again why I am The Boss, why I am Sasha Banks.
"I feel really, really happy and so excited to be the new SmackDown Women's Champion because just like you know, the Draft was a couple of weeks ago. We have a bunch of new incredible female talent, and I cannot wait to go up and down that ring with Bianca, with Liv, with Ruby Riott, Natalya, Zelina, Billie Kay.
I mean, the whole roster. SmackDown is the land of opportunity and I am the leader. So, I'm going to lead the SmackDown women's division to the land of The Boss. I like that." Sasha Banks is also the first woman in history to win a title from someone she was previously a tag team champions with.
She is now the 12th superstar to compete in 3 hell in a cell match. She has a record of 1-2. Banks lost her RAW Women’s Title to Charlotte Flair in her first Hell in a Cell match.
