How was Sasha’s early life?

Her father was African-American, while her mother was a descendent of German. Her brother Joshua is autistic. In the search of a better environment and schooling for him, they moved to various places over time. Finally, they settled in Boston, Massachusetts. There she started her wrestling career.

How was Mercedes KV’s wrestling career?

How was her WWE experience?

On January 23, 2013, Sasha Banks won her first game in the NXT against Alicia Fox. On October 16 the NXT championship, she won against Paige and Emma. The other 2012-14 WWE experience was not satisfactory to Sasha. She couldn’t perform that well and got defeated in many matches.
