[9.0] "I guess the nicest thing I can say about Sasha Banks, is that she always puts her body on the line to have the best possible match she can have. When most wrestlers would be okay with coasting or just having a nothing match on TV, Sasha seems compelled to make every match be something special. Perhaps to her own detriment because she is injured a lot, but speaking as a fan of wrestling, I only have respect for this woman who deeply cares about her craft. Just so this is not a complete love fest about Sasha, I'll be fair and acknowledge Sasha is not great on the mic. That partly has to do with her gimmick conflicting with her being a face instead of the heel, but it can also just be something she'll grow into being better at with time. As for whether Sasha Banks will be a flash in the pan when its all said and done, I don't know, but she's made a very strong impact on me, and I only have respect for her hard work and her ability to have consistently great matches with everyone."
SuTon wrote on 22.08.2016:
[6.0] "She's a decent wrestler at best. She's not consistent at all, exposed on the main roster as a pretty sloppy worker, her ability to work the mic is almost non-existent (she sounds wooden, extremely amateurish, botches lines, and what appears to be an accent gets in the way of understanding her), she's botching in every match, her face character work is at odds with her gimmick (combination of this plucky "we can do it" hero with "fuck you, I'm the BOSS") and is generally unconvincing. That being said, she has had a number of great matches and has played a convincing heel before getting lost in the main roster that testifies to her natural charisma."
The Phantom Pain wrote on 13.08.2016:
[8.0] "A charismatic and swaggerish character she portrays with having good big matches she's involved in, Sasha Banks is definitely one of the best women's wrestler in WWE of today's generation. Say what you want about her being the most overrated of the four horsewomen of this company, but she's young and can still develop her wrestling ethics despite, being already successful and if given the opportunity she'd be one of the aces of the women's division for WWE. Now their pulling the punches right with Sasha Banks. As of her winning the women's title Sasha, has suddenly become slightly sloppy in terms of her wrestling on the ring. While its a major flaw, but if she can go back to what made her successfully over in NXT than I wouldn't mind putting her back to a 9. She still has alot of time."
Hurin wrote on 12.08.2016:
[6.0] "Overall rather overrated since coming to the main roster. Noticeably sloppier in promos and in matches. If she can improve to her NXT levels again I'll change it but until then 'satisfactory' sounds about right."
CaptainCharisma07 wrote on 09.08.2016:
[10.0] "Unlike many of the women in NXT, Sasha Banks did not come into WWE with a ton of hype. She came into WWE with just two years of wrestling experience in Chaotic Wrestling. However, she has worked her butt off to improve a ton each year, going from a jobber in NXT to the NXT Women's Champion to the face of the WWE Women's Division. She's great in the ring, pretty good on the mic, and understands all aspects of ring psychology and charisma. You can tell Sasha loves this business because it shows in all of her work. And the best part? She's only 24 years old and has plenty of time to grow and get even better."

[9.0] "Seen her in action several times in WWE and with Chaotic Wrestling (CW) and liked what I saw. Great talent and it was like a breath of fresh air to see her win the main roster women's title. First woman of color to win a main roster title in quite a while. Heard Nikki Bella is part Hispanic but unlike Sasha she don't look like it. Like her 'Boss' character and impressed that a couple of her matches are "match of the Year" candidates."

[9.0] "Great in ring work and has been involved in a couple of "Match of the Year"candidates but has had a few botches the last few months. Mic work is pretty good but seems a bit forced at times, do like her 'Boss' character though. Heard several fans complain that she is too small to be a believable champ on main roster but apparently they forgot about how small 3 time divas champ AJ Lee was. In fact, since Chyna and WWE parted ways in 2001 most of the women's and diva's champs have been small to average size so smaller women winning the title has been kind of a pattern the last 15 years. Most fans will probably get tried of her sooner or later and claim WWE is trying to shove her down their throats like they have with other stars but for right now she is one of the best in the women's division."
Strezemann wrote on 04.08.2016:
[8.0] "I think that Banks, along with Bayley, has the highest ceiling in the WWE's women's division in terms of how good of a match they can possibly deliver. When it's crunch time - both her matches versus Bayley, her title defense versus Becky Lynch, the 4-match where she won her NXT title, and her recent 'new era' RAW title match versus Charlotte - she has the ability to steal the entire show, and would be a tough act for anyone, male or female, to follow. I don't, however, feel like her less epic (and therefore less all-out) week-to-week stuff is quite as consistent. Maybe she needs to lay out her matches in great detail beforehand in order to really deliver on her potential, which is perfectly alright by me, but I feel like her work on the main roster prior to her title win has ranged from okay to ugly. And while she absolutely looks and carries herself like a star during her entrance and during her matches, she's still not that comfortable on the mic. She made it work as a heel because she could overcompensate with "I'm the boss! "-type character work, but she's quite a poor babyface promo, both in terms of delivery and content. Banks being this good while so young means that she could improve significantly on all fronts in the very near future - and despite that, she's already a star! - and that's definitely something to be excited about. For now, she's close to being great, and deserves being a title-holder on the flagship show."

[10.0] "Pure star overall. She is something that women's divison probably never had. She is top 3 in every possible segment wheather it is in ring skills, mic skills, charisma... she has everything. I would call her the most electrifyng woman in professional wrestling. And you can see that it is hard for her to play that Boss character when she is completely different person in real life but she is always able to deliver. And about her in ring work, she is really something special."

[Kommentar] "A very good wrestler but also a very overrated one. She is prone to botch quite a lot in her matches, though seems to get more of a pass for these than other, less talented (yet more consistent) female wrestlers."
