Trinity Fatu, known as Trinity in Impact Wrestling, was recently interviewed on Busted Open Radio on Sirius XM, where she discussed a number of topics. Among them were why she walked out on WWE, working through an injury, and more.
Below are some highlights from the interview:
Trinity on walking out on WWE:
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.”
Trinity on working through injury:
“I also had, what people don’t know, I worked with a torn labrum for over a year. I kept wrestling, I didn’t talk about it [and] I didn’t say anything because you know, you don’t want to look weak. You don’t want to look like there’s a problem, you don’t want to be taken off TV, none of that. I wanted to keep working. So I continued to work with a shoulder injury and that was also affecting me, it didn’t feel good. So when I got the time off, the first thing I did was go get my shoulder fixed, had shoulder surgery so months off like that not being able to work, having all of it gone, at one point I was like I’m done, like I don’t even think I would probably wrestle again. Just working through it all with myself mentally and having a great support system and seeing the fans still like [say] ‘we want you back, we need to see you, how you doing.’ The support and my family, I got back to where I needed to be. Got through the injury, got through the surgery…I had surgery, I had shoulder surgery. I had a torn labrum. So yea all of that was just a lot mentally and then also being just off the road after that’s all I’ve known for the last 13-14 years…then all of a sudden just sitting home alone by myself in all of it to sort through myself. It was a lot. I feel that it’s made me stronger, better mentally, and physically I feel great. Just having that time to really miss wrestling and really miss the business and really miss the job, I was like ‘oh no, this ain’t it, I can’t go out like this, we have to run this back one more time.’ It was probably the scariest time of my life just being unsure of myself, my future, the first time I’ve been unemployed since I was like 16 years old. It’s made me better and want to go after this job and career even harder.”
