WWE superstar Sasha Banks recently interviewed with Sky Sports where the first ever women’s tag champion recalled how difficult it was to convince Vince McMahon to bring tag titles into the women’s division. Banks talks about how “annoying” she and Bayley must have been, constantly knocking on McMahon’s door asking for this opportunity, but how it eventually got them what they wanted.
It felt like the whole of last year we were asking, like we would be knocking on the door of Vince’s office every week. Me and Bayley would go up to him and some weeks he’d say no and some weeks he’d say yes and then, bam, it’s here. So that just proves that you should never give up on your dreams. If you’re annoying enough you can make things happen and that’s probably what happened, he just got annoyed with us.
Banks also expresses her gratitude to McMahon for green-lighting the idea, and promises that they plan on making the titles feel special.
I hope he understands how important this is to us and we’re going to make it really special. That’s just Vince every week – you never know how he’s going to be. You just have to keep on trying.
