Naomi is recovering from emergency surgery

Naomi defeated Bayley in a Beat the Clock challenge on the Aug. 21 episode of SmackDown, and that’s the last time she’s appeared on WWE television.

There’s a reason for that, and it’s because she’s recovering from emergency surgery. Naomi provided some details on her Instagram:

“In the midst of hurricane sally and Covid I also underwent an unexpected 6 hr surgery to finally remove a massive fibroid that’s caused me severe anemia fatigue horrible abdominal pains and more problems I don’t even want to mention over the past year and a half...I’m recovering well I’m relieved and already feeling so much better so family friends and fans don’t worry I’m ok lol miss ya #myomectomyrecovery”

She briefly commented on her recovery on Twitter as well:

We wish the best for Naomi as she recovers from this procedure, and hope to see her back in the ring soon.
