Today, the wrestling athlete and multi-media superstar Mercedes Varnado turns 29. Better known as Sasha Banks of the WWE, the Smackdown Women’s champion stepped out of the ring and into a spicy outfit to snap some photos from her special day. She may be able to break jaws with her wrestling moves, but she can drop jaws just as easily.
Don’t look too long, because Sasha Banks might hit you with a “Bank Statement” if she gets the wrong idea. She certainly didn’t have a problem doing so to Bayley after her former teammate turned on her. In fact, Banks has beaten the snot out of Bayley on a few different occasions over the years, one of which won her the WWE Women’s Champion title.
It doesn’t end there, as just last week Sasha Banks defeated the former Cirque du Soleil performer Reginald Thomas. This was the first intergender wrestling match that WWE television has aired since 2017. Clearly, Sasha Banks takes no prisoners as soon as they step into the ring.

Sasha Banks may not take prisoners inside the ring, but how about on another planet? Recently, the WWE star appeared on the Disney Plus show “The Mandalorian” as a bounty hunter. Her appearance on the show miraculously came through her Instagram DM’s as a casting director hit her up on the social media app.
“One day, for some reason, I was going through my Instagram DMs, which I normally don’t go through, and a casting director messaged me and said, ‘Jon Favreau really wants to interview you for something for Disney,’” Sasha Banks said via The Hollywood Reporter.
“And the next thing I know, I got a FaceTime from him and he told me about The Mandalorian. I just couldn’t even believe it. At the click of my fingers, we were shooting on set and now it’s here. It’s so awesome.”
