Trinity Fatu Opens Up About Choosing To Join IMPACT Wrestling

Trinity Fatu, formerly Naomi in WWE

Trinity Fatu made her IMPACT Wrestling debut during a taping on April 28th.

The star hadn’t been seen competing in a ring since she and tag team partner Mercedes Mone (then known as Sasha Banks) walked out of Monday Night Raw amidst a reported creative dispute with Vince McMahon. For months, speculation ran rampant about a possible WWE return, but now it’s clear that both women are choosing to expand their horizons beyond the sports entertainment giant.

Speaking on a recent episode of Busted Open, Trinity opened up about her choice to sign with IMPACT as opposed to any other promotion, saying it’s the best place for her right now.

“I chose and wanted to be at Impact. The doors are open for me everywhere, literally everywhere but I truly feel like Impact is the best choice for me at this point in my life right now with what I want to do and to just be able to work with the talent there I feel that is where I’ll be happiest and most utilized and really get to grow in the ways that I feel that I need to right now on this wrestling journey.”

“I’m Extremely Happy Now” – Trinity Fatu

Continuing, Trinity Fatu opened up about her exit from WWE, saying that going through such a hard time was necessary for her to reach the next level in her career.

“Had all of this stuff never happened, there’s no way that I would have took that leap but the situation kind of forced me to figure it out. That’s what I meant when I said everything was a blessing in disguise because I was really going through a lot. I felt very stagnant and I wasn’t happy.

“Ultimately, I left that day because of the way I was talked to and handled. Everything kind of just broke me that day. It had nothing to do with anything else, anybody else. That was just it. I had to. To go through all the backlash and the negativity and the lies and the rumors and then to also kind of just feel lost, it broke me. It was probably the lowest I’ve ever felt in my life.

“But going through that made me reset and face it head on and figure out how to learn from this experience and grow from it [and] just find myself again in all of it. I’m extremely happy now and really thankful for this opportunity to show that you haven’t seen me at my best yet.”
