A number of legends and former superstars come through Monday Night Raw's doors, and recently the company brought back the WCW legend Goldberg after a 12-year absence. That gave some current wrestlers on the roster the chance to meet him for the first time, including The Boss Sasha Banks.
Banks wasn't the biggest Goldberg fan beforehand but describes their first ever meeting quite pleasantly. Banks and Bayley even had the chance to witness some pre-entrance amping from the superstar (via WrestlingInc).
"Seeing him backstage, he was so nice and he came up to me and said 'hi' and I was like, 'wait, you're saying 'hi' to me? Oh my god! You're Goldberg!' And right before he went out, he looked at me and Bayley and was like, 'you didn't see this'. He headbanged the door just to get himself psyched and ready. Like, that is the coolest thing I've ever seen in my life!"
Banks and Goldberg will occupy the same stage later this month on Survivor Series, where Goldberg will take on Brock Lesnar in an anticipated rematch while Sasha Banks will join her RAW compatriates Charlotte, Bayley, Nia Jax, and Alicia Fox in a 5 on 5 elimination match against Smackdown Live's Nikki Bella, Becky Lynch, Naomi, Carmella, and Alexa Bliss.
While she lost the championship to Charlotte, Banks described the joy of planning the bout in the ring with some friendly faces.
"I love being around the ring because I just needed to sit in the ring to think about my Hell In A Cell match. Once I'm in the ring, I'm just, like, things just flow to me. Being in the ring is home." Banks added, "Kalisto was around. I talked to him. Scotty 2 Hotty, he just started at the Performance Center and he was such a help. He helped me so much in this match, like, giving me ideas because it's like, 'how do I even think about this match' because I've never had it? I never used a chair before, I never used a table, because these are options I can use inside Hell In A Cell."
Survivor Series airs on the WWE Network on November 20.
