Sounds like a champion. Women’s wrestling has come a very long way in the last few years. The women’s division has seen growth like never before, but more importantly it has seen more respect than it has ever seen before, with women’s matches main eventing multiple pay per views, including last year’s WrestleMania 35. That doesn’t leave much left to cover as the women now look like stars equal to the men in a lot of cases. They deserve some star level treatment then, that that is what one of them has received.
Sasha Banks arrived on the main roster along with Becky Lynch and Charlotte on the July 13, 2015 Monday Night Raw as part of the Women’s Revolution. Banks immediately became one of the bigger stars in the division and was part of a triple threat match at WrestleMania 32 to determine the first ever WWE Women’s Champion. Her cousin Snoop Dogg played her to the ring that night and now that same entrance has shown up again three years later.
It was a heck of an entrance. Check out Snoop Dogg playing Banks to the ring:
During this week’s SmackDown in Manchester, England, Banks debuted a new version of her theme song, which features Snoop Dogg’s vocals from WrestleMania 32, along with a remixed edition of her normal theme song. The new version of the song plays into her new alliance with Bayley, who has also debuted a new theme song as part of her own heel turn. This is Banks’ first new theme since her debut on the main roster.
It was quite the different theme. Check out the remixed version:
Opinion: This isn’t the biggest change but it does help shake things up a bit for her. There is only so much that Banks can do while she flips back and forth between heel and face so an actually significant change can help a good bit. She works a lot better this way in the first place so maybe the move can establish the bad side just a little bit better. If nothing else, it fits in more with Bayley and that should help things.
Do you like the new theme? What is next for Banks? Let us know in the comments below.
