Back in May last year, former SmackDown Women’s Champion Naomi made her way out of WWE. She was accompanied by her then tag team partner, Sasha Banks. Their creative differences with WWE management turned heads, leading to an unprecedented outcome. However, both women are currently performing in two different promotions and making a name for themselves around the globe.

Following their controversial walk-out, a plethora of vague reports kept piling up. However, it has now been cleared by Jimmy Uso, Naomi’s husband. During a recent chat with Ariel Helwani, The Usos discussed a variety of topics. Jimmy recounted for how things went down in real life. Apparently, he discovered the news just when the entire wrestling community did.

Also, Jimmy Uso shared the different challenges they had to face as a couple, given that they’re no longer working under the same banner. In some positive news, he revealed that his wife is definitely open for a WWE return somewhere down the road. They’d want to finish off their journey whenever the day comes where they started it off together.

Jimmy mentioned how Trinity is currently enjoying what she’s doing at Impact Wrestling. On being asked if Naomi’s actions ever bothered him about his position in the company, Jimmy denied. “I was never really worried about myself. Just mainly her. Making sure everything is okay,” he said. No matter how things shaped up in the past, Jimmy and Naomi stood by each other through thick and thin.

At WrestleMania 38, the magnificent duo of Sasha Banks and Naomi participated in a fatal four-way match. They outclassed the tag teams of Carmella & Zelina Vega, Rhea Ripley & Liv Morgan and Natalya & Shayna Baszler. In a fast-paced matchup that lasted for almost 11 minutes, Banks & Naomi captured the gold.

Following Mania, they didn’t get what they envisioned. Both women pledged to make those titles relevant once again by defending them across every city. However, in return, they received abysmal creative directions flooded with balderdash feuds. Fans weren’t able to get behind them.

After having enough, the duo decided to take a brave decision. Ahead of the May 16th Raw tapings, they went to John Laurinaitis’ office and left those titles on his table. In this way, Banks and Naomi left the building. And eventually, that walkout was permanent, as they later quit the company for good.
