7. Sasha Banks: Mercedes Kaestner-Varnado
Residing in Boston, Massachusetts, Sasha’s real name actually seems like a generic pro wrestling name. Is it just us here on The Richest, or does Mercedes Banks have kind of a nice ring to it? Nonetheless, the WWE didn’t think so and changed her name to Sasha Banks once she made her in-ring debut with the company.
That wasn’t always the case for Banks who wrestled on the Indie scene as Mercedes KV. She wrestled for a couple of years with the name and made quite the name for herself on the Indie circuit before the WWE finally came calling and re-branded the current Women’s Champion under a new name.
Outside of the WWE, Sasha has quite the family history as she is the real life cousin of rapper Snoop Dog. Believe it or not, the popular rapper helped Sasha in developing her Boss-like persona we see on display every week since her dominance began.
