Former WWE Star Naomi Addresses Future Plans Report

Former WWE superstar Trinity Fatu, popularly known as Naomi, has broken her silence regarding recent speculation about her future in professional wrestling. The talented performer has been absent from the ring since May 2022, when she and her then-tag team partner, Sasha Banks, walked out of a live WWE Raw taping while holding the WWE women's tag team championship titles.

Trinity has not wrestled in the intervening months, leading fans to wonder about her next steps. Last month, Trinity officially confirmed her departure from WWE after a 14-year tenure with the company. Although now a free agent, the wrestling world has eagerly awaited news of her next move, with many fans anticipating a potential partnership with her former tag team partner Mercedes Moné, who recently signed with New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW) and Stardom.

Moné made her debut at Wrestle Kingdom 17, further fueling speculation of a reunion with Trinity in the future. However, a recent report by renowned wrestling journalist Dave Meltzer in the Wrestling Observer threw cold water on these expectations.

Despite expressing interest, Meltzer claimed that Stardom still needs to sign Trinity due to budgetary concerns. Meltzer said, "[Stardom] were told they could bring in Trinity Fatu, but it was felt it would cost too much for the return and thus far hadn't made that deal."

Naomi Refutes Observer's Claims

In a direct response to the report, Trinity took to her Instagram Story on Friday, April 21, sharing a screenshot of the Observer's article and writing "Not true" over it.

This denial has reignited fan speculation about where she might eventually land. While Trinity has not competed in the ring for nearly a year, she has been spotted at various wrestling events since her last WWE appearance.

In January, she traveled to Japan to support her friend Mercedes Moné at Wrestle Kingdom, even appearing in a YouTube documentary chronicling Moné's debut with New Japan. Additionally, Trinity was seen backstage at Ring of Honor's Supercard of Honor event in March.

Fightful recently reported that she was at Game Changer Wrestling's (GCW) Scene of the Crime show on Saturday, April 22. As the wrestling world speculates on Trinity Fatu's next move, her recent activity and public denial of the Wrestling Observer's report suggest she remains invested in her wrestling career. Fans will watch closely for new developments regarding the popular performer's future in the industry.
