• Former WWE Wrestler Says Naomi Should’ve Been A 10-Time Women’s Champion By Now
Former 2-time SmackDown Women’s Champion Naomi and her fans aren’t enjoying her booking on SmackDown.
As we noted last week, Naomi didn’t like being part of the Karaoke ShowDown on SmackDown. A week later, she lost a match to Lacey Evans.
After Naomi’s loss to The Sassy Southern Belle, the hashtag ‘#NaomiDeservesBetter’ went trending on Twitter.
Naomi posted the following after she saw it trending:
“Wow! I know y’all got me you always have! I appreciate you all so so much! Thanks for the continuous support and believing in me #bestfans #glowmob #naomob #wweuninverse”

Former WWE wrestler Lio Rush, who previously ranted about WWE’s booking of Black wrestlers being a publicity stunt, also took the time to say that Naomi should’ve been a 10-Time Women’s Champion by now.
“Oh yeah…. and @NaomiWWE should have been a 10x women’s champion by now.”
Oh yeah…. and @NaomiWWE should have been a 10x women’s champion by now.
