The former two-time SmackDown Women’s Champion is back on the blue brand.

Naomi was one of the participants in the 2021 women’s Money In The Bank Ladder match. Dating back to October of 2020, Naomi had been a part of the Raw brand but according to PWInsider, Naomi was quietly moved over to SmackDown and will be a part of WWE’s Friday night programming going forward.

Naomi was last a part of SmackDown in August of 2020. She lost to Sasha Banks and defeated then-SmackDown Women’s Champion Bayley on the same night.

She did not return until the 2021 women’s Royal Rumble match because during that stretch between August and January, she underwent surgery.

Naomi is joining a SmackDown Women’s division that includes the champion Bianca Belair, Bayley who is out with a torn ACL, Carmella, Liv Morgan, Sasha Banks, Tegan Nox, Shotzi, Zelina Vega along with WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions Natalya and Tamina.
