WWE had its final SmackDown ahead of WrestleMania, and part of the night's lineup included a triple threat match between Tamina, Naomi, and Lacey Evans. The match was to select the last opponent for a match challenging Bayley for her SmackDown Women's Championship, but when Bayley came out to sit in on commentary she wasn't alone. With her was her best friend Sasha Banks, and Banks once again impressed with her outfit, wearing a gorgeous sparkling blue jumpsuit. It didn't take fans long to react on social media, and while everyone pretty much loved it, fans couldn't decide on one thing to compare it to. Whether it was X-Men's Mystique, Nintendo's Samus, Avatar's Neytiri, or a host of other examples, people had plenty of comparisons to make, and you can find some of the best starting on the next slide.
We definitely think there is something to the Mystique comparisons, specifically the Mystique seen in Fox's X-Men films (both Rebecca Romejin and Jennifer Lawrence's versions). The blue is the same hue after all, and it shines just like the original costume.
Granted, she can't change her form, but hey, it still looks cool.

It didn't take long for someone to make the comparison between Sasha's dress and Mystique, and when you see the two pictures side by side, it's hard to argue at all.
"Sasha be looking like Mystique from Xmen #SmackDown"
One fan compared Sasha's blue look not to a person or an X-Man but to a bottle of blue Fanta.
"Why Sasha Banks got the Fanta look tonight? Thinking face #SmackDownOnFox #SmackDown"
Another fan went a different route, saying that Sasha looked more like a sparkly mermaid.

Another fan drew inspiration from a gaming classic, saying Sasha was looking like Samus Aran of the Metroid series.
