Naomi’s first post-WWE appearance has been announced.
The Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo (C2E2) announced today that Naomi will be appearing on Saturday, August 6 and Sunday, August 7 at McCormick Place in Chicago, IL.
This is the same convention that Sasha Banks was announced for several weeks ago. As seen in the tweet below, the official C2E2 Twitter account is advertising Banks and Naomi together, but it should be noted that their appearances are separate.
Other pro wrestling stars scheduled to appear at C2E2 as of this writing are WWE Hall of Famer The Undertaker (Sunday), AEW World Champion CM Punk (all days), Danhausen (Saturday/Sunday), WWE Hall of Famer Lita (all days), and WWE Hall of Famer Trish Stratus (all days).

It was reported this week that WWE officials were looking to reconcile with Banks and Naomi, especially now that former WWE Chairman & CEO Vince McMahon has retired. They have not been seen since walking out of a RAW taping in mid-May.
As we’ve noted, Banks and Naomi both removed WWE from their Instagram profiles, and Naomi removed WWE from her Twitter bio. WWE deleted both of their official Facebook pages, and they were also removed from the WWE TV intros at one point. Banks’ avatar was also removed from Peacock. It was reported earlier this month that Banks and Naomi were removed from the internal WWE roster, and that the WWE creative team is operating on the assumption that they are not returning whatsoever. One creative source added that they have not heard of any contingency plans or creative prepared in the event that things change to where Banks and Naomi return. There’s also been no update or internal talk on the tournament to crown new WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions.
It’s been reported by two sources that Banks’ release was secured in early June, but no other sources have corroborated that news, and WWE has not confirmed the departure either. Banks and Naomi reportedly walked out of RAW at the May 16 show, due to frustration over creative. WWE then stripped them of the WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles, and announced that the two were suspended indefinitely. It was later revealed that they were suspended without pay. Their merchandise was also pulled for the duration of the suspension.
