Former WWE champ Sasha Banks has ‘nothing nice to say’ about Ronda Rousey’s pro wrestling crossover

In case you’ve been living under a rock, this past weekend (Sun., Jan. 28, 2018), Ronda Rousey made an appearance at WWE’s “Royal Rumble” event and, shortly thereafter, announced that she had indeed signed a full-time contract with the professional wrestling organization.

And while some “Divas” within the WWE organization may be eager to test their mettle against Rousey inside the ring, other’s aren’t as happy with the move. Former WWE women’s champion Sasha Banks is among them, recently chiming in on Rousey’s crossover. And she didn’t sound thrilled ... at all.

“My feelings, and sorry to do it to you guys, but you know - I have nothing nice to say so I can’t say anything at all. So that’s it,” declared banks during an appearance on Sirius XM’s Busted Open (via Cageside Seats). “I have nothing to say about it, nope. I’ve got nothing nice to say, I’m gonna keep at that. You’re not gonna get nothing out of me.”

Still, when pressed about how she would react if she ever finds herself having to work with “Rowdy,” Banks — once again — kept it short and sweet.

“It’s like I do every single week — I do my job.”

Of course, there are those who may take her comments as nothing more than part of a story line, though it seems her feelings toward Rousey are genuine. Nevertheless, it seems Rousey won’t have too many friends in the locker room, though it’s something I’m sure she won’t mind.

A date has not been confirmed for Rousey’s official WWE debut, though all signs point to Wrestlemania 34, which is set for April 8, 2018, in New Orleans, La., as being a potential landing spot.

Here’s Sasha’s short interview in the embedded clip below:
