Sasha Banks has one of the coolest and most memorable names in WWE but initially her mother Judith wasn't a big fan of her daughter's new moniker.
Speaking to Kelley O'Hara on the Just Women's Sports podcast Sasha, who was born Mercedes Kaestner-Varnado, explained how she got her WWE name.
"The name came really just randomly," she said. "They asked me to give a long list of names, and I always remember putting Sasha with a different last name and Banks with a different first name.
"And I remember just debuting at a house show for WWE and I needed a name. I can't just be Mercedes KV. Finally Sara Del Rey came into the room and said 'we got you a name.' I go 'oh what is it!' She goes 'it's Sasha Banks.' I'm like 'Oh! I love it. That sounds really really good!'"
However Sasha's mum wasn't as excited by her daughter's new name. "I texted my mom. I said 'Hey mom, I got a WWE name. It's Sasha Banks,'" she explained.
"She ended up calling me and goes 'That's a porn star name! Tell them to change it!' I go, 'Mom I can't tell WWE to change the name.' That's how my mom is."
Fortunately, Sasha's mum has got used to the name. "She's come around to the name," Sasha added. "She's like Mama Banks now."
Sasha lost her SmackDown Women's Championship to Bianca Belair at WrestleMania 37 back in April but it's not all been bad news for her recently.
