WWE Network: Unfiltered with Renee Young – “Randy Orton” preview
Sasha Banks and the Best WWE Mic Mastery for Week
Sasha Banks, known more for driving her knees into her opponents' guts and tearing at their limbs, did her damage on Wednesday's WWE NXT by wielding a microphone instead.
Brimming with intensity, Banks stared down the woman holding the championship that she so proudly wore just a month ago. Her confrontation with Bayley ahead of their main event title bout was a clinic in how to hype a match using realism, simplicity and raw emotion.
While her in-ring acumen has generated the majority of the talk about Banks, she has quietly grown into strong mic worker as well. Her interviews feel more genuine. She looks more comfortable relying on her verbal skills alone.
That was evident at Full Sail University, with the flashy, fierce grappler returning to the stage where she first burst onto the scene.
