In a recnet interview with NBC 5 Chicago, Trinity (the former Naomi in WWE) discussed several topics, including her departure from the WWE, joining IMPACT Wrestling and more.
Highlights of the interview are below:
On how it felt to be back in the business after nearly one year away: “It felt really good. You know, it’s scary when you’re away for a while, and you come back not knowing what the reaction is going to be, if you’re going to be missed, if fans still care and if they still remember, so I was extremely nervous about that, but Chicago reassured me that they still got love for your girl.”
On getting emotional during her in-ring promo: “I did, gosh, I did. I was trying to hold back the tears, but it just felt so good being back in wrestling, and being with IMPACT, in a place where I feel so welcome and just for the opportunity, and just receiving all the love, it was very, very overwhelming and I really felt it in my heart, I really did, I couldn’t even hide the emotion.”
On her journey from departing WWE to returning with IMPACT Wrestling: “I think it took a little while for me to figure things out, I’ve been wrestling 14 years now, and then one day, everything just changed and I felt like my whole world was turned upside down and things were shuffled around. I took a little time to just process everything, and really sort out what I wanted to do, and where I wanted to be. I chose IMPACT, because I really, truly believe that it has one of the best women’s divisions, the history of it, I’ve been watching these women for years from afar, and I’ve always admired the talent here, so once I made that decision, that’s what I wanted to do, I went after it and now, I’m here.”
On how what happened in 2022 would affect her approach in the next chapter of her career: “At the time, it was very scary, but I feel like everything happens for a reason and I feel like it was a blessing in disguise, I feel that it’s allowed me to grow and become better in every way, in every aspect, it showed me how strong I really am, and now, I’ve got this new journey ahead of me, these new goals and I’m excited and ready to step into this new chapter.”
