Naomi and Sasha Banks were WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions when they walked out of the company. They didn’t like Vince McMahon’s idea to not have them defend their titles at the next pay-per-view, but instead each of them would receive title matches for each brand’s Women’s Title and lose those matches. Now, Naomi is Trinity Fatu in Impact Wrestling, and she’s very happy about that.

Ringside News exclusively reported that Naomi would have re-signed with WWE, but Sasha Banks held out for more terms. Then they both did their own thing.

While speaking on Busted Open Radio, Trinity Fatu was very candid about her life prior to her WWE exit. She was at the lowest point ever, and she hated how WWE was handling her creatively, so a change was needed.

“I chose and wanted to be at Impact. The doors are open for me everywhere, literally everywhere, but I truly feel like Impact is the best choice for me at this point in my life right now with what I want to do and to just be able to work with the talent there I feel that is where I’ll be happiest and most utilized and really get to grow in the ways that I feel that I need to right now on this wrestling journey. Had all of this stuff never happened, there’s no way that I would have took that leap, but the situation kind of forced me to figure it out.”


“That’s what I meant when I said everything was a blessing in disguise because I was really going through a lot. I felt very stagnant and I wasn’t happy. Ultimately, I left that day because of the way I was talked to and handled. Everything kind of just broke me that day. It had nothing to do with anything else, anybody else. That was just it. I had to. To go through all the backlash and the negativity and the lies and the rumors and then to also kind of just feel lost, it broke me.”

“It was probably the lowest I’ve ever felt in my life. But going through that made me reset and face it head on and figure out how to learn from this experience and grow from it [and] just find myself again in all of it. I’m extremely happy now and really thankful for this opportunity to show that you haven’t seen me at my best yet.”

Trinity Fatu is doing much better now, and she has a fresh start in Impact Wrestling. Details about her contract have not come out yet, but it seems that she is having a great time in the former TNA so far.

Mercedes Mone was backstage at Impact Wrestling to see her friend debut. She also sat in the crowd to watch the moment live during the show.
