In the world of WWE, anything can happen. There’s a weird dynamic in the company that starts and ends with Vince McMahon’s decision making constantly flipping back and forth between various ideas. In the defense of the Chairman himself, he certainly has a lot on his plate each and every week and it’s easy to get enamored with something in one moment and then move on from that idea in the next.

Still, when Sasha Banks decided to be persistent and constantly bring up the idea of a Women’s Tag Team Championship in WWE, she was playing with fire.

While Vince is known to appreciate those who work hard and prove that they can grab the brass ring, he’s also been known to have a short temper and overreact at times. Banks, however, appeared to toe the line between annoyance and persistence perfectly when asking about the belts.

“It felt like the whole of last year we were asking, like we would be knocking on the door of Vince’s office every week,” Banks said in an interview with Sky Sports.

Banks wasn’t alone in her endeavors as Bayley, her tag team partner and long-time friend in WWE, would be right there by her side. McMahons’ reactions, however, ranged from promising, to demoralizing.

Me and Bayley would go up to him and some weeks he’d say no and some weeks he’d say yes and then bam, it’s here. ”

“That’s just Vince every week – you never know how he’s going to be. You just have to keep on trying.”

Sasha would make sure to endorse another up-and-coming tag team on the main roster in the IIconics when mentioning who her choice for the first ever WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions should have been

“For me I would’ve said The IIconics, although they’re still quite brand new,” she said. “They’re amazing though, they’re really incredible.

Sasha wouldn’t stop there though.

“And they’ve had the dream to be WWE tag-team champions since they were kids too.

“They seem like a real team too and if it wasn’t us then I’d like to have seen them have it. Hopefully we can have some good matches with them.”

For Banks, a dream came true when she and Bayley were named the first Women’s Tag Team Champions in the history of the company. It was all rooted in persistence and hard work that proved that the future truly is now in the Women’s Revolution.
