10. Sasha Banks Wants Nothing To Do With Total Divas

WWE.com

Unable to squirm free of Ric Flair's grasp, Sasha Banks must have been inwardly beaming with pride, knowing that Becky Lynch would shortly tap out to Charlotte's Figure Eight at WrestleMania 32. The trio had put together one hell of a match, perhaps the best female bout in WWE history.

There was a lot of emotion surrounding the match, especially because Amy 'Lita' Dumas had announced the retirement of the WWE Divas Title. Instead, Banks, Charlotte and Lynch would be competing for the new WWE Women's Title, a fact which represented the hard work those females had been through to get to such a point.

Speaking to Busted Open Radio this week, Sasha candidly discussed the Total Divas show. The faux-reality program relies heavily on portraying the women of WWE as dramatic and bitchy, and it's nothing Banks wants to be part of.

'The Boss' says she doesn't have a problem with the show itself, but isn't interested in ever appearing on it. That's a positive, because she's much more concerned with improving herself as an in-ring performer.
