Following last Friday's WWE SmackDown, the hashtag #NaomiDeservesBetter began trending after Naomi lost to Lacey Evans. While many fans and wrestlers rallied behind Naomi, Booker T was not one of them.
Booker said on his Hall of Fame radio show that Naomi needs to earn a chance and advocate for herself rather than rely on hashtags. Naomi responded with a tweet saying, "Will do" and a GIF of Jim Carrey from "Yes Man."
Booker responded again, saying he can help Naomi more than people on the Internet, but if Naomi wants to rely on hashtags, that's what she should do. Naomi once again took to social media to offer up a reply.
I don’t feel this way nor would I ever say something like this! Tho I felt my work ethic & what I have earned on my own merit was dismissed, the advice & constructive criticism was greatly appreciated & will be applied esp. coming from @BookerT5x! I’ll cont. striving to improve pic.twitter.com/rTQEEuevZA— Trinity Fatu (@NaomiWWE) July 24, 2020
Booker posted the following response.
I appreciate that. I’m only ever here to help and if there’s any way I can, the offer will always stand! https://t.co/UELwM0RpWn— Booker T. Huffman (@BookerT5x) July 24, 2020
