That explains some things. There are all kinds of reasons for a wrestler to be out of the ring and a good number of them are health related. If someone is injured, there is very little that they can do to get back in the ring without risking a much bigger problem. Such an injury can explain a lot of absences and now we know about another such injury that is preventing an expected return.

Back in May 2022, Naomi and Sasha Banks walked out on WWE vacating the Women’s Tag Team Titles in the process. While Banks has gone on to wrestle in New Japan Pro Wrestling under the name Mercedes Mone, Naomi has not been seen in wrestling. During a virtual signing with Golden Ring Collectibles, Ariane Andre, formerly known as Cameron and Naomi’s former tag partner, revealed that Naomi is recovering from shoulder surgery. There is no word on when the surgery took place or Naomi’s recovery time. It is not clear if this is what is keeping her from returning to WWE, where she is still under contract.

Naomi is awesome when she is around. Check out some of what she can do in the ring:

Opinion: This does explain a few things and hopefully once her shoulder is healed, Naomi can return to the ring and catch up for some lost time. She really is talented in the ring and deserves more attention for her abilities. Getting her shoulder fixed up could make her even better and if we are lucky, we will get to see just how good she can be sooner than later.

What do you think of Naomi? Will she return to WWE TV? Let us know in the comments below.
