Mercedes Mone and Trinity shocked many people when they walked out in the middle of Monday Night RAW over a year ago. What entailed after that was not something either of them expected, as the company made it clear they will never tolerate what the two did. While both Mone and Trinity are in different companies now, it appears that Trinity faced a lot of hardship after her walkout.
WWE was merciless when it came to doling out punishment to both of them. WWE indefinitely suspended both of them and that was just the beginning. The company actively buried them on live television.
The major narrative regarding Mone and Trinity was that they were difficult, unprofessional, and entitled. Many people found such descriptions alarming, but nothing more could have been done.
While speaking with Justin Barrasso for Sports Illustrated, Trinity talked about the media outrage and backlash she received after her walkout. She then opened up about the public humiliation she had to endure as well, adding that it was hard and hurtful.
“I understand the game, I understand the business, and I knew what I was walking away from that day, I just didn’t expect to go through it publicly. Mercedes didn’t let me go through it by myself, so having each other made that a lot easier. But to go through that public humiliation together, it was a lot.
To be taught a lesson while sitting back, that was hard and hurtful. But it got me to this point, and I’m pretty happy to be where I am right now.
There was a lot of hate and negativity in this situation, but the fans were always there to counter it, speaking for me when I couldn’t speak for myself. That motivated me. I love my fans. I love wrestling fans. They’re very loyal. They’ve been on this journey with me for over a decade.”
Trinity is set to wrestle at Impact Wrestling’s Under Seige event as she has an open contract to wrestle at the upcoming event. She is set to square off against Gisele Shaw in the match. We’ll have to see how her match will turn out.
