Despite recently parting ways with WWE and joining Impact Wrestling, Trinity Fatu, formerly known as Naomi, maintains a deep affection for her former company. In an interview with Forbes, the former WWE SmackDown Women's Champion expressed gratitude for her time in WWE and emphasized that she harbors no ill feelings towards the company.
"I never wanna come off as angry, bitter, or mad. I don't feel any of that, you know? I mean, it was just a bad situation... crazy, crazy, crazy situation with many layers to it," she explained. "I'm thankful for all the amazing years that I've been there, what they've given me, what they've given to my family, and the career I've had."
Trinity Fatu, Mone Exit Amid Differences
Fatu and her partner, Mercedes Mone, left WWE just before the May 16 episode of WWE Raw, reportedly due to creative differences.
The pair were Women's Tag Team Champions then and subsequently appeared at various events, ranging from red carpet movie premieres to New York Fashion Week catwalks. Reflecting on the fallout with WWE, Fatu believes it could have been managed more effectively.
"Sometimes there are hiccups with the business, and there are issues and problems, and everything just came to a head, and sadly we had to deal with it publicly," she said. "I wish it could have been handled and handled privately." Since she departed from WWE, Fatu has debuted with Impact Wrestling, joining their Knockouts division.
Meanwhile, Mone has been working for STARDOM and continues to enjoy a successful acting career, including a role in the hit series "The Mandalorian." Despite the challenging circumstances surrounding her exit, Fatu remains grateful for her time with WWE and hopes that the situation could have been resolved more discreetly.
As she begins this new chapter in her career with Impact Wrestling, it's clear that her love for WWE and her experiences there will always be a part of her story.
