The Boss clinched her first-ever SmackDown Women’s Title, ending Bayley’s impressive reign at the same time.
With her win over former tag team partner Bayley at WWE Hell In a Cell, new SmackDown Women’s Champion Sasha Banks is now a WWE Grand Slam Champion.
Banks went into the match as a five-time RAW Women’s Champion, a two-time WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions, and a one-time WWE NXT Women’s Champion. Hell In a Cell 2020 marked her first-ever SmackDown Women’s Title win, and her first Cell victory.
As seen below, Banks was happy to pose with her new title after her match. The Boss worked hard, and also went through an intense rivalry with Bayley to earn her title. Odds are her time against Bayley is not over yet, but tonight was one for celebrating.
In her post show interview, Sasha Banks also comments on winning the title and said she will lead SmackDown to “Land of the Boss”.
“Like I said on Friday, I came, I saw and tonight, I conquered,” Banks said. “I defeated the longest reigning SmackDown Women’s Champion in history, my former best friend, Bayley. Now Bayley was an incredible champion, she was the longest reigning, she was a Grand Slam Champion, she’s the first-ever Grand Slam Champion, but tonight I just proved once again why I am The Boss, why I am Sasha Banks.
“I feel really, really happy and so excited to be the new SmackDown Women’s Champion because just like you know, the Draft was a couple weeks ago. We have a bunch of new incredible female talent, and I cannot wait to go up and down that ring with Bianca, with Liv, with Ruby Riott, Natalya, Zelina, Billie Kay. I mean, the whole roster. SmackDown is the land of opportunity and I am the leader. So, I’m going to lead the SmackDown women’s division to the land of The Boss. I like that.”
