Naomi has officially acknowledged that she is no longer employed by the organisation, as hopes for her WWE comeback grew less and less likely. As she prepared for WrestleCon the next weekend, Naomi (real name Trinity Fatu) revealed for the first time her job status at her longtime employer.
Several fans were curious about the former “SmackDown” Women’s Champion’s situation with WWE since she departed the company in May 2022. When she reposted a visual for her impending appearance on Instagram on Thursday afternoon. Female, are you even still working for WWE? Under the post, one fan left a comment.
In answer, Naomi responded, “no frien’,” confirming that she had actually left WWE. Although Naomi has now made her situation quite obvious, it is still unclear what she will do next. Following her walkout last year, Naomi mostly avoided wrestling-related engagements, with the exception of a few conventions.
Mone continues to advance outside of WWE
She decided to pursue other chances outside the square instead, including modelling alongside Sasha Banks, her old tag team teammate, during New York Fashion Week (now known as Mercedes Mone). They also went to the Los Angeles premiere of “She-Hulk: Attorney at Law” in August.
Mone continues to advance outside of WWE while everyone waits to see what Naomi will do next. Mone made her first post-WWE appearance in January at Wrestle Kingdom 17 of New Japan Pro-Wrestling. At NJPW’s Battle in the Valley event last month, Mone defeated KAIRI to win the IWGP Women’s Title. Next, Mone is anticipated to face STARDOM star AZM to defend her championship.
The former Sasha Banks’ return to WWE was noted, but it was also made clear that she would have to give up some of the demands she made during earlier negotiations. Yet, a contract with either Bushiroad or AEW would allow Mone to continue working in Japan and perhaps even book gigs in Mexico.
