Sasha Banks has been on the short list of most compelling performers, male or female, on the WWE roster for more than the past year. She defeated her longtime nemesis Charlotte Flair for the women’s championship tonight.

Banks was inexplicably off television for upwards of two months after WrestleMania, and has been on a tear since she returned. In a promo after winning the match, she declared that “This is the era of women’s wrestling, and I promise you, every single week, every time I step in this ring, I’m gonna show everyone why I’m champion.”

She is well on the way towards becoming one of the most marketable faces of the company.
