• Raw Star Reveals Which Female Legends She Would Like To See In The First-Ever Women’s Royal Rumble 2018 Match, Says She Wants To Pull One Of Kofi Kingston’s Tricks In That Match

During a recent interview with NBC Sports, Raw Superstar “The Boss” Sasha Banks had the following to say regarding which female legends she would like to see in the first-ever Women’s Royal Rumble 2018 match:

“I would love to hear Trish Stratus’ music. Of course Lita, Molly Holly, Jazz, Jacqueline, man even Victoria. It would be an honor to be in the ring with any of those girls. Beth Phoenix. Of course I want to win it, but at the same time, I would just want her to pick me up and throw me over the top.

I would mark out, but I would land on my hands and go back into the ring like Kofi Kingston [Laughs]. Any of those girls would be incredible, but of course I would love to see girls from NXT get the opportunity, but of course they wouldn’t win it because I would be the last person standing.”

During a recent appearance on Cerrito Live, former TNA World Heavyweight Champion James Storm talked about being invited to Ric Flair’s 30 For 30 Premiere, how The Undertaker played a role in people not drinking at the premiere, what’s next for him & more.

Below are the highlights:

On Ric Flair inviting him to the 30 For 30 Premiere:

“Yeah, it was really cool because I got the text and the phone calls actually the day of, ‘hey, ‘Cowboy’, I want you to come down to Atlanta, Georgia for ESPN and I want you to walk the red carpet with me’ and all this. The day of. Right, it was 10:30 in the morning here, which is 11:30 in Atlanta. It’s a four-hour drive from here to Atlanta, plus Atlanta traffic, so I had to leave literally as soon as I got off the phone.

Like, I grabbed some clothes, threw it in the trunk, and I just hauled ass to Atlanta and I got changed in my truck in the garage. That’s pro wrestling style, right there, for you. And then, I pulled my hair back, threw my hat on, and I got there as soon as Flair and his wife, Wendy, were getting out of the limo.”

On people not drinking at the premiere:

“No, I mean, he was still Flair. It was super cool just to go to his party. And, like, no one was drinking in respect to Flair. And I think a lot of people walked in to see what Taker was doing also. If Taker wasn’t drinking, no one was drinking, was how it went down.

But I do think it is out of respect for Flair that no one was drinking there, especially the boys. They paid their respects to him and as soon as that party, then, all the boys went to a different place for an afterparty.”

On what he’s doing nowadays:

“Right now, I’m just taking it one day at a time. I’m actually at a gym right now. I’m spending most of my time in the gym, just getting into the best shape that I can. Hell, I’m down to 11% body fat right now, which, at the last TVs, I was up to 16, so I’m hitting it hard because you never know what’s around the corner or what could be next for old James Storm.”

On if he would return to NXT:

“People always say, ‘main roster or bust type of guy,’ but if you look at NXT, it’s one of the hottest things going right now no matter what people say. And it’s one of those things where anybody would be proud to be signed to NXT and have a good run there.

I mean, it’s plain and simple. They are doing as much as the people on the main roster is on the road and stuff like that right now. So, I mean, I’d definitely go and work with those guys and help them out as best I can.

I just want to be a surprise because today, especially in our social media world, there are not that many surprises anymore. And because everybody wants to be cool and I always say, ‘people are wrestling for the likes and the retweets’ or GIFS, whatever they call those things these days.

But to me, I always try to keep stuff kayfabe and keep stuff secret until it happens or whatever, so it’s even cooler when it’s a surprise.”
