Sasha Banks is currently atop the mountain on SmackDown. She is the Women’s Champion on the Blue Brand and was recently named Sports Illustrated’s Wrestler of the Year 2020. The Boss is not only enjoying her most successful run in the WWE Universe but is also making her name through ventures beyond it.
She recently starred on the hit show ‘The Mandalorian’ as Koska Reeves. a Mandalorian who serves under Bo-Katan Kryze as a member of the Nite Owls. Katee Sackhoff, who plays the role of Bo Katan, was full of praise for Banks during a recent interview.

“Mercedes (Banks’ real name) is such a beautiful blend of so many qualities that are phenomenal,” Sackhoff told Schmoedown Entertainment Network. “She is one of the hardest workers I’ve ever met in my entire life.
“She is grateful and humble. She’s incredibly talented and fierce. She is open to learn. She’s gonna be a superstar and is absolutely amazing. She is so physically capable and makes it look easy.
“There are certain things I’ve been trained to do as a fighter and actor, but when they do it as a living and as an athlete and they are flying around, it’s very different than me pretending to do it in a foam pit with a bunch of five-year-olds.
“I really really want to fight with Sasha. I want Katee Sackhoff to show up and be her tag team partner for a WWE match.”
During the same interview, Sackhoff recalled how Banks insisted she boo her when she went to a WWE event.
“I’ve only been to one in my entire life and it was a Sasha Banks fight,” Sackhoff said. “I went with the entire stunt team from The Mandalorian watching Mercedes fight and she tells me that everybody boos. So I was like, ‘I’m going to cheer so hard.’ She goes, ‘Don’t you dare, you have to boo.’ I was like, ‘okay, I’ll boo you.’ I was booing so hard. I was drinking a beer and screaming at her.”
