Naomi On Missing The Beginning Of 2017:

“It’s definitely hard being taken from you dream, especially when you’re trying to accomplish something. I went through two injuries. There was one right before a tour, I tore a tendon in my ankle and then I went on tour and it made it worse, so I came off of that. I came back again and then I got injured again and had even more time off, so I just had a lot of time to sit at home and think and come up with another plan. So when I do come back, this is what I’m going to do and this is where I want to be. And I just put all my energy and time and everything into that, and thankfully everything went as planned and worked out for me.”


Relinquishing The SD Live Women’s Championship & Thinking Their Would Be No WrestleMania For Her:


“For sure, because at that time I honestly was trying everything in my power not to let anybody know happened. But realistically there was no way I could compete and perform. I didn’t know how bad it was. I had an MCL sprain, which I got on the finish. So I was just blown away, I was like ‘there’s no way this is happening, why does stuff like this always happen to me?’ I had to just rehab and take care of myself. I’m very blessed and fortunate to even have come back, and for the injury not to be as bad to where I needed surgery and be out longer.”

Feeling Ready To Compete At WrestleMania:

“Yes, it was literally the week before and even then it was still a possibility, ‘I don’t know if you want to risk it or give it more time.’ I fought and fought and fought and begged. Just had to really get them to trust me. ‘Trust me, I know my body. I can go, I can do this.’ And it was literally a week before. I for sure thought I wasn’t going to make it.”


Naomi On Her “Feel The Glow” Entrance:


“It’s all me. I have a very creative mind and I’m always looking for new stuff and new things. I’m really into EDM music and the culture of that, I just love all that stuff. Changing the entrance and just doing something different every time, I think it keeps it fresh for everyone. I like people wondering ‘what is she going to wear tonight? What’s she going to have on, what’s she going to do?’ I think it just keeps it new and something different. Every time that I come out and I don’t want it to get old. What I have been learning, I’ve been trying to learn how to shuffle dance. It looks easy, but it’s a lot harder than it looks. That’s what I’m working on next, I want to come out with a cool shuffle dance routine.”
