Naomi is set to return to in-ring action on Friday, but it won’t be for WWE or SmackDown.
According to a report from PWInsider, Trinity Fatu (Naomi) will make her IMPACT Wrestling debut this Friday. According to the report (h/ta WrestlingNews.co), it has been confirmed that this is not a one-night stand and that Trinity will be working towards a pay-per-view match with a full schedule as part of the buildup. .
The debut will take place this Friday, which will put to rest speculation that Fatu was training to return to wrestling, but it was unclear exactly where he would return to. There was talk of a possible return to WWE, but there are also reports that the company is in the midst of a hiring freeze. Not much was said about Naomi’s path to AEW and other reports suggested NJPW considered signing her but ultimately decided against it as a way to save money, a report Fatu appeared to deny on social media.
Depending on how long his stay with IMPACT Wrestling lasts, this is quite an accomplishment for the promotion. They have long wanted to improve the women’s division of hers and Fatu is widely regarded as one of the most naturally athletic fighters in the world. WWE critics suggested that she was never given a chance at her and that she will have a chance to prove herself as IMPACT is expected to push her hard upon her arrival.
Fatu should do well and deserves his chance
Fatu has been a part of the world of main stage wrestling since 2009. He initially competed in the developmental territory, Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW), before making his WWE debut as part of a group called The Funkadactyls. Initially a dancer for Brodus Clay, Naomi began competing as a singles wrestler and eventually won her first WWE championship in 2015, when she defeated Nikki Bella to become the WWE Divas Champion.
Known for her athletic ability and high-flying moves, she brought The Glow to WWE and will potentially do the same for IMPACT.
