WWE Superstar Naomi recently did an interview with Civilian Magazine where she discussed her reaction when she first saw women perform in WWE, her “Feel the Glow” gimmick and joining the Boys & Girls Club of America’s Alumni Hall of Fame.
Check out the highlights below.
Naomi on first watching women perform in WWE:
I was blown away,” she recalls of her first time seeing the women perform. “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.”
Naomi on her “Feel the Glow” gimmick:
“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.”
Naomi 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,” she says of her new outlook on life.
