There have been some rumblings backstage claiming that the current rivalry between Sasha Banks and Alexa Bliss is closer to real life than most people realize. According to several sources, the two have a genuine dislike for each-other!
Sasha Banks Fires at Alexa Bliss
Rumours surrounding genuine heat between Sasha Banks and Alexa Bliss have been circulating since NXT. It is believed that Sasha Banks has a dislike for Alexa Bliss and does not consider her as a professional.
The claims that Sasha Banks genuinely dislikes Alexa Bliss seemed to be supported by the interview she gave after the Great Balls of Fire pay-per-view. Even though Sasha Banks is the face in the rivalry, she did make some pretty heel statements during the interview.
When Peter Rosenberg asked her about the rumours of genuine dislike between her and Alexa, Sasha Banks stated the following:
“you know, she came in so cute, so humbled. She came in so fake, with her fake little stories, her fake little “I love wrestling growing up, I love Matt Hardy”. You know what? You can’t even tell the difference between Jeff and Matt. You idiot. Yeah, we call you on all your lies, sweetheart. You’re just here to be another girl. Another heel. You just want to be here for a Hollywood act. You’re on Total Divas now, you’re getting what you want and you can talk your way into everything, but you know what? You can’t run away from me. You can talk this, but you can’t walk the walk – cause you’ll never be me. I’m a three time Women’s champion for a reason, and I will be a four time Women’s champion very soon. I won that match tonight, and I demand my rematch.”
When Renee Young tried to end the interview on a more positive note later, she tried to give Alexa some credit for working her way up the WWE ladder. Sasha Banks would interrupt Renee and say the following:
“What work, Renee? Look, you don’t have to come from the indies to be here, but you do have to respect it. You don’t need to lie your way saying “Oh my god, I love – I love this company”. Girl, you don’t need to lie, just be yourself. And if she was herself, maybe I would like her. There are girls who don’t like this business, but they learn to respect it. And she doesn’t show any respect. And that’s what I’m gonna teach her – respect.”
Alexa would retaliate after hearing the comments Sasha Banks made during the interview. Still, I have to admit that the statements made by Alexa were a lot more elegant than those of Sasha Banks. Here is what Alexis had to say!

Sasha Banks is certainly throwing a lot of shade in Alexa Bliss’ direction at the moment, while Alexa is keeping it professional. What do you think? Do Alexa and Sasha have a genuine dislike for each other? And if so, whose side are you on?
