In the co-main event of the IMPACT Wrestling Slammiversary 2023 pay-per-view this past Saturday, Trinity (fka Naomi in WWE) defeated Deonna Purrazzo to win the IMPACT Knockouts World Championship.
In a backstage interview after the match, Trinity said the following about her victory:
“I’m living the dream right now. I pictured myself being the Knockouts Champion. Here I am. It’s such a surreal feeling.
Gosh, I’m still trying to process it all right now. Deonna is definitely the toughest opponent I have ever faced.
To be able to go the distance with her and beat her is a huge accomplishment for me.
Now the real, real, real work begins because it’s gonna be even harder to hold on to this.”
WWE star Tamina Snuka and current NJPW star Mercedes Mone (fka Sasha Banks in WWE) were backstage at Slammiversary, to support their friend Trinity.

During an interview with the New York Post before Slammiversary, Naomi revealed that Bayley and Tamina are the only two WWE stars that checked on her and Sasha after they quit WWE in 2022.
Below is what she said:
“I wouldn’t want to do it with anyone else other than her, whatever that is. I’ll always do what’s best for her, what’s best for me and what’s best for the business. If it’s something that comes up that makes sense for the both of us, hell yeah.
Me and her, we just had each other it felt like. Other than Tamina, Bayley checking in on us regularly, that was it. We just had each other going through that.
Nobody understands the magnitude of what happened and what really went on and why we feel the way we feel and where we are but me and her and the people that were involved that day. It just goes to show how real our friendship is and how real all of this is.”
