After nearly a year's absence from WWE, former WWE Women's Tag Team Champion Naomi, who left the company alongside Sasha Banks (aka Mercedes Moné) last summer, has officially re-entered the wrestling ring under the new moniker Trinity Fatu, or simply Trinity.
She made her debut with Impact on the May 4th edition of the brand's show, despite being previously associated with AEW, New Japan Pro Wrestling, Stardom, and even rumored to return to WWE. In a conversation with Denise Salcedo on her YouTube channel, Trinity discussed her decision to part ways with WWE, venture out independently, and ultimately bring her talents to Impact.
While she acknowledges and appreciates her WWE legacy, she is excited to explore her potential and make a name for herself outside Vince McMahon's empire.
Trinity Fatu Embraces New Challenges
Trinity Fatu expressed the inherent pressure of wrestling and stepping into a new company, emphasizing her desire to grow, showcase her abilities, and, most importantly, have fun.
She doesn't feel the need to prove anything, given her successful WWE career, but wants to demonstrate her continued passion for wrestling. As she embarks on her journey with Impact, fans are eager to see if Fatu will establish a lasting legacy like Deonna Purrazzo, becoming a prominent face of the brand and their female ace, or if she'll follow the path of Chelsea Green and Mia Yim, using her time in the Impact Zone as a stepping stone rather than a final destination.
In discussing her choice to join Impact over other opportunities, Trinity explained on Busted Open Radio that Impact presented the best chance to advance her career at this point in her life. She believes that she will be happiest, most utilized, and able to grow in the ways she needs to while working with Impact's talent.
Her past experiences influenced Trinity Fatu's decision to join Impact and her desire to overcome stagnation and unhappiness. She views the situation as a blessing in disguise that pushes her to make the leap and pursue her passion for wrestling with a new company.
