WWE Smackdown: Naomi has been drafted from WWE Raw
The rumors of Naomi Champion jumping into the Smackdown roster were making rounds for almost a month. All those rumors came tonight when the former Smackdown Champion showed up on tonight’s show in a backstage segment.
The former champ was on a brief break ever since losing in the women’s Money in the Bank ladder match at the Money in the Bank PPV. During the time, WWE worked through several editions of Monday Night Raw, Friday Night Smackdown & the Summerslam PPV, and now she has arrived on Friday nights.
WWE Smackdown: What was Naomi’s segment tonight?
Naomi appeared in a backstage segment where she had a word with WWE authority figure Sonya Deville in the latter’s office. She told Sonya that how excited she is to be on the Blue brand yet again and wanted to have a match tonight. But Sonya made it look like she wasn’t even aware of her arrival and therefore didn’t got anything ready for her.
