It’s been five years since Sasha Banks and the Roman rulers had two important baby faces in RAW. By 2021, both could be integral figures of the SmackDown brand and the highlights of WrestleMania 37’s Night 1 and Night 2.
It’s easy to forget that once upon a time, Sasha Banks and the Roman rulers merged. It only happened one night and one game only on RAW. It was October 10, 2016, and Sasha Banks was the RAW women’s champion, while Rome’s reign was the U.S. champion.
By that time, Sasha Banks had already won, lost, and reclaimed the RAW Women’s Championship from Charlotte Fleur. The Roman Empire, on the other hand, had a quarrel with Rusev as the champion of the United States. That night at RAW, Sasha Banks and Roman Reigns teamed up for a Mixed Tag Team match against Charlott Flair and Rusev.
Although Roman rule wasn’t a well-known kid in 2016, that night he rejoiced with Sasha Banks, who was already famous. Two Champions defeated Charlotte Fleur and Rusev, handed over by Sasha Banks The Queen Roman rule, on the other hand, struck the spear Bulgarian rudeness to prevent any interference. Lana was also in the ring.
What happened in 2016 with Sasha Banks and Roman rule
As 2016 was a great year for the WWE, Sasha Banks and the Roman rulers found themselves in a comfortable position. By mid-2016, Sasha Banks had won her first WWE Women’s Championship, and Roman rule was in its “punishing” phase.
Despite WrestleMania under 32 titles and Triple H’s refusal to become a WWE World Champion, things have not been smooth for Roman rule. Before moving on to a brawl with returning Seth Rollins, he beat AJ Styles in a pay-per-view classic for two shows in a row.
In a shock move, Seth Rollins defeated Roman Reigns in a clean sweep to regain the WWE world title, only to be defeated just minutes later by Money in the Bank winner Dean Ambrose. The next evening, the Shield was declared the Triple Threat – the main event on the battlefield, and the Roman rulers were immediately suspended for violating the WWE health policy.
Roman rule came back and took the penfall to Dean Ambrose in the game. The next day at RAW, he lost cleanly to Finn Balor, who made his debut. It was the biggest drop he had faced in singles, but he returned to the fast pace after winning the United States Championship.
Sasha Banks will continue to win the RAW Women’s Championship again during the brawl before losing to Charlotte Fleur until the end of 2016.
