Naomi walked out on WWE RAW back in May 2022 and eventually made her way to TNA Wrestling, where she became the Knockouts Champion. She finally made her WWE return during the Royal Rumble and now Naomi commented on her return as well.
This month, Naomi’s contract with the company came to an end and it was all but certain she was heading back to WWE. The 2024 Royal Rumble started with the Women’s Royal Rumble match, featuring Natalya in the number one spot.
Naomi would then make her shocking return as the second entrant into the match, as she came out to thunderous applause. She wasn’t able to win the match but the fan reactions certainly mattered to her.
While speaking during backstage interview following the Royal Rumble Premium Live Event, Naomi was asked about the fan reaction to her return. Naomi admitted that it was hard to hold back her emotions and was simply grateful to be back.
‘‘It was hard to hold back all the emotions, it felt really good after this little journey I been on, to finally be back. That’s the scary part, you never know what that reaction or response is, to feel that oh man. It’s so much more rewarding, we’re grateful to be back.”
It remains to be seen if Naomi will be able to replicate her past success during her second run in the company, as fans are simply happy to have her back after so long.
