The article posted the following on the idea:
They don’t call Sasha Banks “The Boss” because she’s known for her micromanagement skills. With her flashy style and in-ring technique, she specializes in disrupting the status quo. After main-eventing NXT TakeOver and competing in NXT’s first women-only Iron Man Match, she’s off to a great start.
It has been more than 10 years since a Diva challenged for — yet alone won — a male championship in WWE. Past Divas did it with power moves and frying pans, but Banks’ high-risk style affords her the ability to take down much larger opponents. Plus, the classic Intercontinental Championship would look perfect around Sasha Banks’ waist.
In 2015, Sasha Banks had a historic year for female wrestling. However, it’s a very different animal for her to compete against men in WWE, let alone win a male championship.
Despite the fact that Lucha Underground and other promotions utilize male vs. female wrestling in the ring, WWE hasn’t done that in years. WWE is in the mainstream, and that could be a difficult thing to pull off.
It’s still a possibility, and it would no doubt make women’s wrestling something to take even more seriously in WWE. The question is if WWE would take that chance in today’s climate.
