Both Sasha and Ton are completely private about their relationship. Sarath’s ex-Tag Team Champion wife explained during an interview with Afterbuzz TV why she is so secretive about her relationship with Ton.
In the interview, Banks said the reason why she and Ton barely talk about their relationship is that her fans are so crazy sometimes and constantly send hateful comments to her husband on social media. Sasha said she’s just hiding it because she sees what the internet her partner Sarath writes on Twitter, which she doesn’t appreciate.
The former WWE Women’s Triple Crown Winner also reported how the online community often calls her husband ugly.

Is Sarath as rich as his wife, Sasha Banks? What is his net worth?
Although Ton’s partner of over a decade, Sasha Banks is generally a millionaire, it is unclear what appreciation Sarath herself has when it comes to money and financial status.
Nevertheless, it seems inconclusive that Banks’ husband Ton is also a millionaire similar to his wrestler wife who reportedly has an estimated net worth of more than $4 million. Banks are said to have cashed in most of this wealth during a successful career in the independent circuit.
Regardless, given his affiliation with one of the wealthiest sports franchises, Sarath’s net worth could still be at least in the neighborhood of hundreds of thousands of dollars.
In addition to being a designer, Ton is also sufficiently active on internet hangouts such as Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and the like.
