"I love it," Trinity said of hearing her real name being used by fans. "I wanted to use my real name when I first started wrestling, but I couldn't.

"So now that I get to use my actual name and and brand myself with my name, it's cool."

Leaving WWE, Trinity is not just leaving the name Naomi behind but the character as well.

When asked if there's any characteristics that make Trinity different from Naomi, the former WWE Women's tag team champion said: "Definitely.

"I think Trinity is going to be a little more aggressive. Still fun, she still likes to dance, still likes to play, but a little tougher than Naomi was."

Looking ahead to her future in Impact, Trinity said: "It's going to be a great journey. I hate saying 'journey' but I don't know what else to say because that's what it really feels like.

"There's just so much newness. It's a big deal and was a big decision because it affects everything, my whole life, my schedule, my home life. It's a new chapter."
