Trinity Fatu (fka Naomi) has opened up about her relationship with Mercedes Mone (Sasha Banks) following their WWE departures.
Both women walked out on a WWE Raw taping in May 2022.
While they were initially stripped of their Women’s Tag Team Championship and suspended, neither Mone or Fatu returned to WWE TV, with Mone appearing for NJPW in January, and Fatu debuting for IMPACT in April.
Speaking with Sherri, Fatu noted that Mone helped her to transition to life after WWE.
Commenting on the bond she has with Mone, Fatu said:
“It’s very difficult sometimes to get out of your comfort zone. And she and I kind of experienced that together, just the unknown, but having her to confide in, especially those times where it really did get hard.
“That’s my sister for life. Our relationship goes beyond wrestling.
“We always had, I think, a great special connection.
“Just being together in the business over the years, working together, experiencing things together, even real-life stuff, family, we just experienced so much together.
“And I think it’s very special when you find people like that in the business where it goes beyond the work to that.
“Yeah, I love her. She’s the goat, the greatest of all time.”
Mone picked up an injury at last month’s NJPW Resurgence show, suffering a broken ankle in her bout against Willow Nightingale for the NJPW STRONG Women’s Title.
An update has emerged on Mone’s talks with AEW prior to her injury, which you can read more about right here.
