Sasha Banks hasn’t taken kindly to comments made by WWE legend Booker T about her tag team partner Bayley and has taken a shot at him on her social media.
WWE Legend Booker T minced no words while speaking about the reigning SmackDown women’s champion, Bayley. He called her a quintessential worker but also mentioned that she wasn’t ‘great at anything’. In contrast, he described Sasha Banks as a ‘major player’.
On his podcast, The Hall of Fame with Booker T & Brad Gilmore, Booker T praised Sasha Banks but reserved criticism for Bayley. Despite crossing all the boxes to be a wrestler, he did not see her on par with her tag team partner. Although he did admit liking her heel run.
“Sasha is a major player.’ Booker T said. “She is one talent on the roster that you can always be able to go to and then know that she’s always going to deliver, especially in a big match.’
“ Bayley is the quintessential worker. She can go out there and she may not be great at anything but she’s good at everything. So when I watch Bayley go out and perform now, taking on this new persona, which is something that I couldn’t wait [to see happen,]’
“I think it’s good for her, as well as we’re in this era again, this pandemic era. Everything right now is kind of like on hold in like a holding pattern and for those two to be in a position, in a holding pattern is perfect.”

Banks and Bayley have been calling themselves the greatest tag team and have called out other notable teams such as FTR, The Kabuki Warriors, WWE Hall of Famers Rock ‘N’ Roll Express among others. The timing on this tweet however, suggests that this was a light hearted response to Booker-T’s comments.
Bayley is set to defend her SmackDown women’s championship against number 1 contender Nikki Cross at WWE Extreme Rules. Sasha Banks on the other hand, is scheduled to have an Interbrand match against Asuka for the Raw Women’s championship.
