Akeelah is ready to play WWE’s Queen B.
Since losing to Lacey Evans on the July 17th episode of SmackDown, Naomi has been trending on Twitter with many feeling that she deserves better. With multiple fans and even AEW’s Big Swole chiming in to say with the WWE veteran does deserve more than she's been given over the years, one surprising name to join in on the conversation is actress/singer Keke Palmer.
Keke Palmer commented on a video of Naomi returning in the 2020 Royal Rumble match and offered to bring “The Glow” to the big screen.

Xavier Woods is completely stoked on the idea and has some suggestions regarding who could play him in a feature film.
I fully support a movie where you play Naomi, if there’s anything in there with New Day all I ask is that @DaveedDiggs plays the taller version of me?— Austin Creed - Future King of The Ring (@XavierWoodsPhD) July 18, 2020
Regarding Naomi herself, she has responded to all of the praise on Twitter and Keke's desire to play her in a movie.
I -- would approve...love you Keke now that’s the real gag------ https://t.co/MXwWxxfFnR— Trinity Fatu (@NaomiWWE) July 18, 2020
Keke Palmer did play Chilli in the movie about the 90s R&B group TLC. However, it looks like she may be willing to transition from singing TLC songs to competing in TLC matches.
