Sasha Banks and Naomi walked out during the beginning of Raw in May 2022, and that didn’t sit well with Vince McMahon. They were subsequently suspended for what they did, and that has become distant memory now. Sasha Banks is officially a free agent and is free to go whenever she wants to. With her set to debut at Wrestle Kingdom 17, fans wondered whether Naomi would follow suit and join Banks. It seems Naomi has already confirmed that she is in Japan, ahead of Wrestle Kingdom 17.

Earlier reports suggested that Naomi was still weighing her decision regarding WWE return. It was later reported that Naomi is set to appear at Wrestle Kingdom 17 alongside Sasha Banks.

Naomi took to her Instagram story and uploaded a video from her current whereabouts, the streets of Tokyo. This confirmed that she has officially arrived in Japan. Needless to say, fans should now expect to see her with The Boss at the Tokyo Dome.

We will have to wait and see whether Sasha Banks and Naomi will find success in New Japan Pro Wrestling. After all, both of them have taken a big risk by leaving WWE to explore other avenues. Regardless, fans are definitely excited about their imminent NJPW debut.
