SASHA BANKS TALKS ABOUT HER TRIP TO JAPAN
With Sasha Banks’ status with the WWE a constant source of speculation, the woman herself took to Instagram to clear up the reason for her recent trip to Japan. Sasha was tagged in numerous posts last week with prominent Japanese wrestlers. Sasha took to Instagram to reveal the purpose and reason for her trip:
In life, there are a lot of things I’ve always wanted to accomplish. Not for the sake of telling the world I did it, but for me, and only me. Things that feed this hunger inside me. Things that, when everything else in the world disappears, still brings me a heartfelt of joy that makes me remember why I am who I am. This past week I was lucky enough to travel to Japan and train with some of the best wrestlers in the world. I walked in with an open mind, and open heart, and became a student once again. To say that this was a dream come true is an understatement. Thank you @meiko_satomura @sendaigirlspro_official @dicktogo
She also posted two other pictures from her trip:
