Sasha Banks is Shawn Michaels’ favorite wrestler

Here’s a cool story which pretty much totally makes sense.

During her appearance on Sam Roberts' Wrestling Podcast, Sasha Banks told the host about a meeting she had at a WWE event with the legendary Heartbreak Kid, Shawn Michaels. Turns out old HBShizzle is a big fan of the Boss:

Shawn Michaels was backstage and he talked to me. I was like, “Oh, this is so cool.”

He was like, “Dude, you're my favourite wrestler.”

I was like, “What the? You said that to me, Shawn Michaels?”

This still makes a lot of sense, because while Sasha gets compared to her idol Eddie Guerrero a lot, she’s also got a lot in common with Shawn. Both are undersized performer with a reputation for show-stealing performances who got big as cocky heels and for whom injury history became a big part of their kayfabe stories.

Plus, they share a very powerful mutual friend in Triple H.

Now, we just need pics of Shawn wearing a camo hat and Kanye shades to seal the deal.
