Sasha Banks and Ronda Rousey Disagree Over Meaning of Four Horsewomen

sasha banks four horsewomen ronda rousey taunt reasoning

The Four Horsewomen vs. Four Horsewomen feud continued on Wednesday after Sasha Banks explained her reasoning for throwing up the iconic hand signal on RAW.

As you may have seen, Sasha threw up the Horseman taunt on Raw this week while walking backstage and staring down Ronda Rousey. 

In an Instagram post days later, Banks said this was done because her version of the Four Horsewomen (which includes Charlotte, Becky Lynch and Bayley) is about changing the perception of women’s wrestling in WWE, not being a fan.

Sasha wrote:

The 4HW is about changing the perception of women’s wrestling in the WWE. Its about walking into an arena full of people, including some of the people in the back, who’s expections are lower than low, and knocking them on their asses. Showing the whole world that ” I was born to do this ” isn’t some catchy line, but a promise to them from me, that as long as I have a breath in my lungs, I will never go less than 💯. That’s why I throw up the 4 fingers. You throw them up cause you’re a fan… That’s the difference between you and I [Ronda Rousey] after #RoyalRumble you can go back to sitting in the crowd where you belong.

Ronda was quick to fight back, however, writing, “Everything you just said was about YOU and what YOU do. As an individual… you haven’t even begun to grasp what the 4 Horsewomen truly represent.”

Adding, “The REAL 4 Horsewomen [Shayna Baszler, Jessamyn Duke, Marina Shafir) and myself are about camaraderie, we’re about loyalty, we’re sweat sisters bonded in blood we’ve shed together in the pursuit of a common goal. When any of us succeed, we rise together. If any of us fall, we dive to catch each other. When at our highest highs we hoist each other even higher into the air. When at our lowest lows we dust each other off and empower the sisters at our side to take another defiant step forward. You’re a bickering quarreling thrown together corporate copy of the lighting we’ve captured in a bottle.”

“We’re real friends, we’re real sisters in arms, we’re the dose of reality to has come to dispel the fantasy that is your FAUX horsewomen.”
