Many fans blamed Naomi for Uso’s arrest, with some claiming he never got into trouble before she entered his life. This led to a ton of online abuse from fans who genuinely believed his nonsense. Having endured the poison from fans, Naomi quit Twitter entirely.

Some smarter fans sent Naomi support during these troublesome times, while many WWE superstars stood by her too. From Zelina Vega and Mia Yim, to Cedric Alexander, Xavier Woods and even James Ellsworth showed their support for Naomi.

It all began with a tweet from one fan, which began a chain reaction. This reaction ended with a significant portion of wrestling fans turning on Naomi and filling her timeline with hate. She hasn’t commented on the issue yet, and neither had Jimmy nor Jey Uso, or the Tribal Chief, Roman Reigns.

Big matches coming up for Naomi and the Uso’s

Although they’re on different brands, Naomi and the Uso’s are killing it. On Raw, the former Women’s Champion has qualified for the women’s Money in the Bank ladder match. As for her husband Jimmy and brother-in-law Jey Uso, they will have the Tribal Chief’s back during his gigantic Universal Title match against Edge.

But prior to those, all three of them have some tough tests. On Raw, Naomi takes on former Raw Women’s Champion Asuka in a pre-MITB match. Although they qualified for the ladder match together, this match will prove it’s every woman for herself this coming Sunday.
