Naomi and Sasha Banks walked out of Monday Night RAW over a creative dispute in May 2022. The duo were the Women’s Tag Team Champions at the time, and their exit led to the titles being vacated. A tournament was held to determine the new champions, which saw Raquel Rodriguez and Aliyah come out on top. As fans wait for Naomi’s return to the ring, it turns out that she is recovering from an injury.

Sasha Banks has since headed to Japan, debuting as Mercedes Mone in the NJPW, where she is currently the IWGP Women’s Champion. Naomi on the other hand has been trying her hand at some modeling work.

While on one hand, the fans are happy for Sasha in NJPW, they are also worried about Naomi as they believe she would not be returning to the WWE. It looks like that’s far from reality.

Ariane Andrew, her former tag team partner, recently appeared for a virtual signing with Golden Ring Collectibles. She claimed that Naomi is currently recovering from a shoulder injury.


“So, she (Trinity Fatu/Naomi) is recovering from shoulder surgery and you know, I want her to answer the question for herself (of what’s next for her). I know she’s recovering from shoulder surgery. But, I’m super proud of her. That’s my sister from another mister and I think you have to ask her for yourself how she’s feeling. See if her shoulder is feeling good because she’s recovering right now. Ask her that question,” said Cameron. 

It remains to be seen when or if Naomi is going to make a return to WWE. Until then, we wish her a speedy recovery. For more updates, stay tuned to Ringside News.
