During a podcast interview with Chris Jericho, Sasha Banks revealed the origin of her boss character. She stated that she got that from Snoop Dogg, who happens to be her first cousin in real life. Sasha thought that the character really worked for the rapper, and she knew that she could call him for one liners to use on the audience. Snoop is a well known fan of WWE.

It is no secret that Sasha Banks has a very bright future with WWE. Not only is management pleased with her character and in ring abilities, they also view her age as a major asset. Sasha is just 23 years of age, so the company knows that she can be a centerpiece of the divas division on the main roster for years to come. By the time that the older performers are out the door, the main roster will belong to Sasha, Paige, Bayley and Charlotte.

The fear is that male fans would like her a little bit less if she did not appear to be single and available.
