• Sasha Banks Takes A Shot At WWE Limiting Her Ideas

Sasha Banks left WWE in 2022 and joined New Japan Pro Wrestling in 2023 as Mercedes Mone. She’s the current IWGP Women’s Champion.

While promoting her upcoming match against Mayu Iwatani during an interview with Sports Illustrated, Mercedes talked about how WWE limited her ideas, but that isn’t the case in Japan:

“The ultimate goal for a lot of professional wrestlers is to make it to WWE. That’s what I thought was the big time. But I did that.

I wanted to make new history, and the place to do it is here in Japan. Japan has the highest standards for women’s wrestling, and I want to set the standard in New Japan.

I’m not even in my prime yet. I’m just getting started. I’m finally getting to create the magic I’ve always wanted to create. My ideas aren’t being limited and I’m not constantly hearing no or that matches are being cut short. I’m not going to hold back.”
