Sasha Banks surprised the children at KIPP AMP Middle School in New York ahead of last night’s episode of WWE SmackDown.
One of the clubs at KIPP AMP Middle School is ‘The Wrestling Club’, where students meet to watch wrestling matches.
On the agenda yesterday was Bayley and Sasha Banks’ Iron Woman match from NXT TakeOver: Respect in 2015.
The match is great, but what made the moment extra special for the kids, as you can see below, was a special appearance from Banks herself.
Thank you @SashaBanksWWE and @WWE for coming to see The Wrestling Club. These kids will remember this day for the rest of their lives. 💙 💚 pic.twitter.com/3dt5CUZg3X

As you can see from the video above, Banks turned up to a thunderous ovation from the children in the classroom, all of whom seemed rather shocked to see the WWE star in their school.
WWE shared some photos from the day too, with Banks posing for photos with the children, some of whom were able to hold the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship.

Banks was then in action on SmackDown later that night, losing out in singles competition to fellow former NXT Champion, Shayna Baszler.
On next week’s episode of SmackDown, Banks and Naomi will defend their Women’s Tag Team Championship against Baszler and Natalya.
Many thought the match would take place at WrestleMania Backlash tomorrow night, with only one title match on the card, but WWE has decided to book the match on SmackDown next week instead.
GiveMeSport was recently present at a WWE press event featuring Sasha Banks and Naomi, ahead of WWE’s live event in London last week.
Banks and Naomi took questions from the media, including GiveMeSport, and spoke at length about their big win at WrestleMania 38, and you can watch the entire press conference above.
