Naomi On Her Early Days In FCW, Who She Learned From & More

During an appearance on “Chasing Glory With Lilian Garcia”, Naomi spoke on her early days wrestling for FCW, seeing A.J. Lee as a mentor and more. Here are the highlights:

On Her Current Mindset:

It’s a way bigger statement than just me. I’m having a different look coming back to wrestling. It’s just something that I just wanted to do, symbolically to recognize the struggle and also, to come in and say, ‘Look, this is who I am. This is where I am.’ I’m at a point. Yeah. You don’t have to accept me. I accept me. I love me. This is how I look. This is what it is. So, enjoy, watch me kill it. So, that’s what’s all about.

On Her Struggles With Her Recent Injury:

That was a tough time, because fans thought that was a work, they thought it was a part of the script and for and they don’t understand, that was real. I really had to vacate it when I didn’t want to. I cry. I was upset, because my MCL, really was torn. I had a slight tear. And that wasn’t supposed to happen in Mania, but I bust my butt off in rehab. I didn’t even know at the time if I was fully healed, but I fought for that and it was rough, and it almost didn’t happen. But I’m glad it did.

On A.J. Lee Being A Mentor In FCW:

It was me and AJ. AJ Lee holding it down at FCW. And I learned so much from her, because honestly at the time, the only one… there was only a handful of us, which is crazy, and we look at the roster now. But it was literally eight or 10 of us, that was it. That was the whole roster.

And at the time AJ was really the… we all came in so green and not from a wrestling background. AJ was really the only one who knew what was going on and how this thing works and really helped me a lot and taught me so much, and Serena Deeb. It was just… I learned so much from those girls in itself, because I feel you never get to hear those stories or know about this stuff.
