Fans have been waiting for Sasha Banks to turn heel for a long time, and it may finally be coming, according to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter. Meltzer said that while Sasha Banks will be feuding with Nia Jax for the coming weeks, the long-term plan is for her to be a heel.
Sasha Banks got over in NXT as a heel playing the character of The Boss. This was a role she excelled in, and it peaked in her final NXT feud against Bayley. Many fans have criticised Sasha’s role as a babyface, citing it to be unsuitable for her and her talents.
