Sasha Banks Would Never Do Total Divas
In a recent interview with Busted Open Radio, Sasha Banks revealed that she would never do Total Divas because she is a wrestler.
“There’s always gonna be, so to say, Divas. And I’m in a category of wrestlers … It’s not for me. I won’t ever be on that show. Saying it out there for a fact. But it’s fine. People like it. People watch it. So let them enjoy it.”
Teddy Hart Talks NXT
During an appearance on the Kevin Gill Show, Teddy Hart pondered whether Triple H would have the balls to bring him to NXT:
“I would love to see Stephanie McMahon and Triple H man up, one time, and say we give you another chance… not to be under WWE contract, but to do some matches on NXT so people can watch me, and I can make their guys look great! Does Triple H have the balls to put Teddy Hart on NXT? That’s the question I ask Triple H. I’ve never said a bad word about you. I think you’re one of the best wrestlers for the last 15 years, if you put Triple H, Shawn Michaels, and Teddy Hart in a triple threat match, it would be better than the Chris Benoit match and it would happen right now. Even right now, Triple H is in better shape than he was before, and he’s watching NXT all the time so his mind is getting better for what wrestling really is.”
Hart was in WWE developmental many years ago and was supposed to come up with Nattie and DH Smith, but he was fired for his “bad reputation.”
“A lot of the stories and a lot of the hype is just stories and hype. I really want to show the fans substance I love the business, and my reputation is something I really want to work on changing, so people feel more comfortable, the fans that spend so much money keeping this great sport alive, and all the fans listening out there, feel more comfortable putting the Teddy Hart name out there as a name they want to see in Wrestlemania, a guy they want to see wrestle Triple H or Brock Lesnar, or go to Lucha Underground..stuff like that.”
