Professional wrestling career[edit]

World Wrestling Entertainment/WWE[edit]

Florida Championship Wrestling (2009–2011)[edit]

In August 2009, WWE signed McCray to a contract and she reported to their then-developmental territory, Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW). She made her FCW debut as a fan favorite on the September 3, 2009 episode of FCW TV, as a Lumberjill for the Queen of FCW match between then-reigning queen Angela and Serena Mancini. In October she was introduced as Naomi Night in her first match, a losing effort where she and Alex Riley lost to AJ Lee and Brett DiBiase.[7]

Naomi later became a villainess, teaming with Rosa Mendes, Alicia Fox, Maxine, and Courtney Taylor against the likes of Angela, AJ and Aksana. She soon transitioned into a fan favorite again by defeating Maxine and Savannah in tournament qualifying matches to eventually defeat Serena in the finals on June 20, 2010 episode of FCW TV, to become the first ever FCW Divas Champion. The surname Night continued to be used in the talent roster July 2010[4] She went on to successfully defend her title at a Father's Day salute against Lavinia.[8]

In July, Naomi retained her FCW Divas Championship by defeating both AJ and Serena in a triple threat match,[9] when Naomi pinned Serena. She also defended successfully against Tamina Snuka.[10]

In August[11] on FCW's 100th Episode, Naomi (now called Naomi Knight) fought AJ to a double count-out in a match where both the Queen of FCW title and the FCW Divas Championship were on the line. In September[12]) Naomi defeated AJ in a Lumberjill match to end their feud.

By October 2010[13] she began being identified on the website as just Naomi.

On the December 16 episode of FCW TV (aired on tape delay on January 23, 2011), Naomi lost her FCW Divas Championship to AJ. On the July 1, 2011 episode of FCW TV, Naomi defeated Audrey Marie. On the July 8 episode of FCW TV, Naomi unsuccessfully challenged Aksana for FCW Divas Championship in a triple-treat match also involving Sonia. On the July 21 episode of FCW TV, Naomi teamed up with Caylee Turner in a winning effort against Audrey Marie and Kaitlyn. On the October 9 episode of FCW TV, Cameron Lynn and Byron Saxton accompanied Naomi to ringside during her match against the debuting Leah West. On the October 23 episode of FCW TV, Naomi teamed with Cameron Lynn teamed up to defeat Caylee Turner and Kaitlyn. On the December 11 episode of FCW TV, Naomi challenged Audrey Marie for the FCW Divas Championship, but was unsuccessful.[14]

NXT (2010–2011)[edit]

On the August 31 episode of NXT, it was announced that Naomi would be part of the all-female third season of NXT, with Kelly Kelly as her pro.[15] Naomi debuted on the September 7 episode of NXT, where she won the "Dance Competition" and "Capture the Flag" contests, and also teamed with her mentor Kelly Kelly to face fellow rookie Diva Maxine and her pro Alicia Fox in winning effort, when Naomi pinned Maxine.[16] On the September 21 episode of NXT, Naomi unsuccessfully competed in the "Talk the Talk" challenge, was won by AJ Lee. Later, she teamed with Kelly Kelly and Jamie Keyes in a winning effort, defeating LayCool (Layla and Michelle McCool) and Kaitlyn with Vickie Guerrero in their corner.[17] On the October 5 episode of NXT, Naomi unsuccessfully competed in the "Mechanical Bull Riding" and "Talent Show" contests.[18] On the October 12 episode of NXT, Naomi and Kelly Kelly were defeated by Alicia Fox with Maxine in her corner, and Naomi unsuccessfully competed in a "Name that Tune" contest, but won the "Power of the Punch" contest.[19] The following week, Naomi won the "Who's That Body" and the limbo contests, although host Matt Striker incorrectly declared Naomi the winner without her successfully completing the round Maxine had failed. However, the rules were stated in the beginning of the challenge that the last Diva left standing would win, leaving the win valid.[20] On the October 26 episode of NXT, Naomi defeated Maxine in a singles match, and unsuccessfully competed in a "Halloween Candy" contest.[21] The following week on November 2, Naomi earned immunity from elimination for having the most challenge wins. Over the following two weeks, Naomi won matches against Aksana and Kaitlyn, as well as the "Diss the Diva" contest. On November 30, in the final episode, Naomi lost to Kaitlyn, placing second in the season.

The Funkadactyls (2012–2014)[edit]

On the January 9, 2012 episode of Raw, Naomi made her main roster debut along with Cameron, as The Funkadactyls, the backup dancers and valets for the returning Brodus Clay.[22] Naomi made her WrestleMania debut at WrestleMania XXVIII alongside Cameron during a segment with Clay.[23]

On the TLC pre-show on December 16, Naomi participated in her first televised match by winning a "Santa's Little Helpers" battle royal to earn WWE Divas Championship match against defending champion Eve later that night,[24] which she lost.[25] On the March 15 episode of SmackDown, The Funkadactyls were attacked backstage by the Bella Twins. On the March 22 episode of SmackDown and the March 25 episode of Raw, Naomi and Cameron attacked the Bella Twins.[26] It was announced on March 27 that at WrestleMania 29, The Funkadactyls, Clay and Tensai, collectively known as Tons of Funk, would face Team Rhodes Scholars (Cody Rhodes and Damien Sandow) and the Bella Twins in an eight-person tag team match. However, the match did not happen, as it was revealed that they were cut due to time constraints.[27] The match instead took place the following night on Raw, with The Funkadactyls and Tons of Funk coming out victorious. On the August 26 episode of Raw, Naomi alongside the rest of the Total Divas cast accompanied Natalya and Brie Bella to the ring for their match. After the match, Divas Champion AJ Lee cut a worked shoot promo, where she insulted the cast of the show. On the September 2 episode of Raw, Naomi competed in a triple threat match with Brie Bella and Natalya to determine the number one contender to the WWE Divas Championship, however AJ Lee attacked all three of them, resulting in Stephanie McMahon putting Naomi, Natalya, and Brie Bella in a fatal four-way match to compete for the title at Night of Champions, where AJ was successful in retaining the title. The cast of Total Divas went on to defeat The True Divas (Alicia Fox, Aksana, Divas Champion AJ, Kaitlyn, Rosa Mendes, Tamina Snuka and Summer Rae) in a 7-on-7 elimination tag-team match at the Survivor Series pay-per-view, and in a rematch on the following night on Raw.[28][29]

Naomi in April 2014

On December 15 at the TLC pay-per-view, Naomi, along with fellow Funkadactyl Cameron and Tensai, abandoned Brodus Clay because of his attitude, effectively disbanding Tons of Funk.[30] The following night on Raw, Naomi and Cameron aligned themselves with R-Truth and Xavier Woods, and subsequently began accompanying them to their matches.[31] In January 2014, Naomi received a push, facing the Divas Champion AJ Lee in various tag team matches, and eventually pinning her on both Raw and SmackDown.[32][33][34] On the February 3 episode of Raw, after Naomi defeated Aksana in a singles match, Alicia Fox attempted attack her but was stopped by Cameron.[35] During the match, Naomi suffered a legitimate displaced fracture of the orbital bone.[36] Naomi returned on the March 17 episode of Raw, donning a diamond studded eye-patch, teaming with Cameron to defeat AJ Lee and her bodyguard Tamina Snuka. At WrestleMania XXX, Naomi competed in the 14-woman "Vickie Guerrero Invitational" match for the WWE Divas Championship but was unsuccessful in capturing the title.[37][38] On the June 17 episode of Main Event, Naomi defeated the new Divas Champion Paige, while Cameron, who had began showing villainous tendencies, attacked Paige after the match and ended up being beaten down by Paige. Naomi then shook hands with Paige, hinting at dissolution between The Funkadactyls. On the June 23 episode of Raw, Naomi defeated Alicia Fox and shook hands with Paige after the match. On the June 27 episode of SmackDown, after once again losing to Paige, Cameron tried to attack her. Naomi got involved and tried to separate the two, but wound up being shoved into Paige by Cameron. At Money in the Bank, Naomi unsuccessfully challenged Paige for the Divas Championship.[39]

On the July 7 episode of Raw, Cameron and Naomi lost in a tag team match to AJ Lee and Paige. After the match, a brawl ensued between Cameron and Naomi, officially disbanding The Funkadactyls.[40] On the July 8 episode of Main Event, Cameron was scheduled to team with Naomi, Natalya, Eva Marie, Rosa Mendes, and Summer Rae against Nikki Bella in a six–on–one handicap match, but instead showed up only to attack Naomi.[41] On the July 11 episode of SmackDown, during Cameron's match with AJ, Naomi dragged a retreating Cameron back into the ring, allowing AJ to get the win. These events led to a match between Naomi and Cameron on the Battleground pre-show, which Cameron won after she grabbed Naomi's tights.[42] On the July 28 episode of Raw, Naomi defeated Cameron in a tag team match.[43] On August 30, after almost a month of inactivity, Naomi announced on Twitter that she had been out of action following minor surgery on her orbital bone.[44] She returned on the September 1 episode of Raw in a six-woman tag team match, and attacked Cameron afterwards.[45] Naomi then secured victories over Cameron on the September 15 episode of Raw[46] and on the October 9 episode of Superstars.[47] At Survivor Series, Naomi participated in a 4-on-4 elimination tag team match, where she eliminated Cameron before pinning Paige to get the win for her team in a clean sweep, gaining a measure of revenge for her pay-per-view losses against Paige and Cameron from the months prior.[48]

Managing The Usos (2014–2015)[edit]

In December, Naomi became involved with The Usos' feud with The Miz, in which Naomi and Jimmy Uso's real-life relationship was openly acknowledged on-screen. Miz began offering to help further Naomi's musical career as well as showing some hints of flirtation, much to Jimmy's dismay.[49][50] On the December 16 episode of Main Event, Naomi appeared on "Miz TV", where Miz managed to get Naomi a WWE Divas Championship match against Nikki Bella later that night on Super SmackDown Live. Miz came out mid-match to support Naomi, but she lost the match after Jimmy accidentally distracted her due to his anger of Miz being present.[51] On the December 29 episode of Raw, Naomi hugged Miz backstage and thanked him for his services, while Miz acted as if he had no expectation that the producer he had hired would help her music career. She later celebrated with her husband and brother-in-law after the Usos won their second WWE Tag Team Championship from Miz and Damien Mizdow.[52] The feud continued with Alicia Fox joining Miz and Mizdow after she attacked Naomi backstage, leading to a series of mixed tag team matches, which Naomi and the Usos lost.[53][54] In February, Naomi and the Usos briefly feuded with Natalya, Tyson Kidd and Cesaro after the Usos lost the Tag Team Championships to Kidd and Cesaro.[55]

Team B.A.D. (2015–2016)[edit]

On the March 30[56] and April 6 episodes of Raw,[57] Naomi pinned the WWE Divas Champion Nikki Bella, making Naomi the number one contender for Bella's championship, however, other Divas, requested and, were granted a number one contender's battle royal by acting general manager Kane.[58] On the April 13 episode of Raw, Naomi turned heel for the first time in her WWE career by assaulting Paige after she had lastly eliminated Naomi from the battle royal.[59] It was subsequently announced that Paige had been injured at the hands of Naomi, rendering her unable to compete in the storyline.[60] With this Naomi was granted a championship match against Nikki at Extreme Rules,[61] but she failed to win after interference from Brie Bella.[62]

In May, Naomi started an alliance with returning Tamina and the two attacked both Nikki and Brie,[63] which led to a tag team match between the two sides at Payback, which Naomi and Tamina won.[64] On the May 18 episode of Raw, Naomi lost another title match to Nikki after Tamina caused a disqualification.[65] After Paige returned, a triple threat match was made between Naomi, Paige and Nikki at Elimination Chamber, however she once again failed to capture the title.[66] On the July 13 episode of Raw, after weeks of being outnumbered by The Bella Twins and their ally Alicia Fox, Stephanie McMahon called for a "revolution" in the WWE Divas division and introduced the debuting NXT Women's Champion Sasha Banks as an ally to her and Tamina, after bringing in Charlotte and Becky Lynch to ally with Paige, leading to a brawl between the three teams.[67][68][69] The three teams would ultimately face off at SummerSlam, on August 23, in a three team elimination match, won by Team PCB.[70]

Naomi, Tamina and Sasha Banks, known as Team B.A.D. remained together throughout the rest of the year,[71][72][73][74][75][76] however, on the February 1, 2016 episode of Raw, Banks announced her departure from the team and Naomi and Tamina attacked her, officially ending their association.[77][78] The feud between Naomi and Tamina and Banks would continue throughout February,[79][80][81][82] and would lead to a tag team match at Fastlane, where Naomi and Tamina lost to Banks and her partner Becky Lynch.[83] In late March, Naomi and Tamina allied with Lana, Emma and Summer Rae, leading to a 10-Diva tag team match on the WrestleMania 32 kick-off show, which Naomi's team lost.[84] On July 19, at the 2016 WWE Draft, Naomi was drafted to SmackDown.[85]
