The day many fans of both Star Wars and professional wrestling have been waiting for is here. Sasha Banks, current WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion, appeared in the latest episode of The Mandalorian on streaming service Disney+. She plays Koska Reeves a Mandalorian warrior that tangles with the title character and The Child, who everyone will also know as Baby Yoda.

As seen in her joyous social media reaction to the episode’s debut, Sasha is credited under her real name Mercedes Varnado. The current top of SmackDown’s Women’s Division is not scheduled to appear in more than one episode this season, and fans relished every second she was on screen.

In addition to joining the galaxy far far away this week, Sasha defeated longtime rival Bayley on SmackDown last week before suffering an attack from the returning Carmella. All signs point to more battles for Banks both in the squared circle and on the small screen.
