Naomi is a true veteran in the women’s division in WWE as she has been competing in the company for several years now. Naomi is definitely a fan-favorite in the company and is a former WWE Smackdown Women’s Champion as well. It seems she is still struggling on Friday Night Smackdown.

Ever since her return to the blue brand, Naomi has been engaged in a feud with Sonya Deville, who is the heel in their storyline. The storyline has been criticized for having no proper endgame.

While speaking with Jalen Rose: Renaissance Man podcast, Naomi talked about her current status on the main roster. Naomi added that she still has to fight with WWE for matches longer than two minutes.

“I think, just in general, still trying to fight for the TV time. Getting matches that are longer than two minutes. Although you’re thankful because there’s still so many women that aren’t even getting the TV time, it’s like, ‘okay, I got two minutes. At least I got that. I’ve got two minutes to show and prove and get people behind me.’ But you want more, you need more, you know what I mean? To develop those stories and those characters.”


That opportunity has to be there. I realize whenever women in our industry are given that opportunity, they knock it out of the park every time. But it can’t just be sporadically, it needs to be consistent. So, that’s what myself and all of us are still pushing for and fighting for. Each day, each week.

We will have to wait and see if Naomi will eventually find herself in the Smackdown Women’s Title picture or not as fans would love to see her become champion again.
