Sasha Bank’s debut match, under the ring name Mercedes KV, took place on 1 October 2010. It was an intergender tag team match, where she teamed with Nikki Roxx against Alexxis Nevaeh and Danny E. Her debut singles match was on 22 October where she lost to her opponent Danny E. Throughout the next year, she successfully defended her title from many such as Luscious Latasha, Nikki Roxx, Alexxis Nevaeh, and Mistress Belmont.
After her reign of 260 days, the championship was declared vacant on August 18, as she signed a contract with the WWE. With her new ring name Sasha Banks, she made her debut in WWE NXT. Her first match was against Paige, in which she lost. The feud came to an end after Banks teamed up with Paige, and defeated Marie along with Summer Rae. Later that year, in June, she took part in the NXT Women's Championship. However, she lost in the first round. Later, when the Championship was vacant, she again competed in a tournament for it. However, she lost in the semi-finals. In February 2015, she defeated Charlotte Flair in a Fatal four-way match, winning the NXT Women's Championship. A rematch was held next month, where Banks successfully retained her Championship by defeating Charlotte again. Throughout the year, she defended her title against several others such as Alexa Bliss, and Becky Lynch. She and Charlotte had a rematch again, in July, in which Banks emerged victorious again, retaining her title. In November 2016, Sasha Banks was a part of Raw's women's team for Survivor Series. Even though she was eliminated by Natalya, her team proceeded to win the match. During the same month, Banks defeated Charlotte in a Falls Count Anywhere match to win the Raw Women's Championship once again.
