KEY POINTS

  • Sasha Banks names Mandy Rose, Kayden Carter and Kacy Catanzaro as performers she would like to work with
  • Rose has been holding the NXT Women's Championship since October 2021
  • Carter and Catanzaro have meshed well together as tag team competitors

WWE has been looking to create a new generation of stars via its NXT 2.0 brand which serves as their in-house developmental territory, and former Women’s Champion Sasha Banks has her eyes on some women she would like to get in the ring with.

While on the promotion’s European tour, the Women’s Tag Team Champions Banks and Naomi answered some questions from the media, with the former name-dropping some of NXT 2.0’s best female talents.

“I have a little history with Mandy Rose. She and them can get it anytime. I really like Kayden [Carter] and Kacy [Catanzaro] down there. They’ve been working really hard. I’ve trained with both of them at D-Von Dudley's school. I love girls that want to do more,” Banks said.

Mandy Rose and her faction “Toxic Attraction” have been running roughshod over the brand since forming in August 2021 and won the NXT Women's Championship two months later.

When Rose was brought up to the main roster in 2017, her first feud saw her team up with Sonya Deville and Paige to take on Sasha Banks, Bayley, Mickie James and Alexa Bliss, before flying solo in December 2019.

Banks mentioning Kayden Carter and Kacy Catanzaro in the same breath as Rose is a great endorsement of their burgeoning talent.

The duo of Carter and Catanzaro took part in the 2021 Women’s Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic tournament and defeated the duo of Mercedes Martinez and Toni Storm in the quarterfinals before falling in the semis to Dakota Kai and Raquel Gonzalez.

Catanzaro, now performing under the ring name Katana Chance, became known in pop culture after putting on stunning performances during her time on American Ninja Warrior.

After retiring in 2017, Catanzaro made the move to pro wrestling where she has since been honing her talent and is quickly becoming a dependable performer alongside her tag team partner in Carter.

Banks did not shy away from complimenting the current stars of NXT 2.0 and every female performer who has been putting the work in at the Performance Center.

“I’ve seen them work so hard for so long and would love the opportunity to go down there and tangle with them,” she added.

Having Banks do a one-off feud with either one of the women she mentioned is going to be a win-win situation for all parties involved.

NXT 2.0 is going to get a massive boost in viewership thanks to Banks’ star power, and the likes of Catanzaro and Carter will benefit from getting in the ring with a veteran like her.

It remains to be seen whether Banks will push for this setup with WWE’s creative team, but it certainly is an interesting proposition.
