• Naomi Is Joining IMPACT Wrestling (Details)
After leaving WWE in 2022, Sasha Banks joined NJPW this year as Mercedes Mone. However, her former tag team partner Naomi still hasn’t returned to wrestling.
According to the Wrestling Observer, NJPW & STARDOM’s parent company Bushiroad passed on the offer to sign Naomi because she would cost a lot and they can’t afford that because their business took a hit during the COVID-19 pandemic:
“They were told they could bring in Trinity Fatu, but it was felt it would cost too much for the return and thus far hadn’t made that deal.”
Naomi saw this report and took to Instagram to note that this isn’t true:
In an update, PWInsider is reporting that Naomi will debut in IMPACT Wrestling at this weekend’s TV tapings in Cicero, Illinois.
This won’t be a one-off appearance, but the beginning of her run in the company.
