WWE Superstar Naomi recently did an interview with Civilian Magazine in which she discussed multiple different topics. You can see the highlights below.

On wanting her ‘Feel The Glow’ gimmick for a long time:

It took me two years to get that on TV. I had been pitching it literally for two years. I just knew that was me, and that was what kind of set me apart.

On seeing a WWE event for the first time:

I was blown away. I was like, ‘I know I can do that.’ I like it, this is cool. It keeps me in shape, and it keeps me fit. So I’ll keep doing it until I figure out what’s next.

On joining the Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s Alumni Hall of fame:

I grew up in a Boys & Girls Club. Seeing all these little kids who look like me, grew up like me, growing through the same stuff I’ve been through, it’s giving me purpose.

Naomi has been off of WWE TV ever since her husband Jimmy Uso suffered an injury that will keep him out 6-9 months. She took to Twitter and said, “I haven’t been posting much of myself lately because I’ve just been down about all that’s going on in the world, helping my husband through his injury, and trying to figure out my next step (work). It’s been a lot to process but today I woke up feeling HOPEFUL and ready to rock.”
