Naomi (real name Trinity Fatu) revealed today that she recently underwent an unexpected surgery but is already feeling much better.
Naomi wrote in a post on her Instagram Stories:

Naomi also wrote on Twitter that she's recovering well, misses the fans, and will return as soon as possible.
Naomi's most recent appearance on WWE television was on the August 21 episode of SmackDown. She faced Sasha Banks and Bayley in a Beat the Clock Challenge to determine the order for Banks and Bayley's Women's title matches against Asuka at SummerSlam. Naomi lost to Banks but then defeated Bayley.
Bayley is defending her SmackDown Women's Championship against Nikki Cross at Sunday's Clash of Champions pay-per-view. Cross became the number one contender to Bayley's title by defeating Tamina, Lacey Evans, and Alexa Bliss in a fatal four-way match on SmackDown two weeks ago.
