Following her appearance at the 2021 Money in the Bank PPV, it appears that WWE will be going in a different creative direction with Naomi. Mike Johnson of PWInsider.com is reporting that Naomi “has quietly been shifted to the Smackdown brand” from RAW which means she is once again on the same show as her husband Jimmy Uso.
At this time, WWE has not officially made an announcement regarding Naomi. Naomi had recently been teaming up with Lana on RAW prior to Lana’s release from WWE.
There has been internet speculation in recent months about Naomi being aligned with The Bloodline on Smackdown and the news of Naomi being moved to Smackdown has fueled the speculation…

I wouldn't mind seeing Naomi turn heel, align with the Bloodline and get what's hers. Great performance last night, hopefully there's a plan in play.

Reports have confirmed that Naomi has been moved to SmackDown.
I really hope that this is the start of a build to Naomi turning heel to join The Bloodline and challenging Bianca BelAir for the SmackDown's Women's title. pic.twitter.com/PQ9e4lqS6V

There’s legit so many wonderful opportunities for Naomi to finally shine on #SmackDown…
– Align herself with The Bloodline.
– An amazing future title feud with Bianca.
– A Naomi & USO’s v Bianca & Street Profits feud.
So much to explore. I’m so so happy for her.

According to PWInsider, Naomi has been quietly moved from WWE RAW to Smackdown as of today.
Does she turn heel and join the bloodline? Or does she keep doing her thing as a singles competitor?
Regardless, I fail to see the point of the WWE Draft if this keeps going. pic.twitter.com/XgFRLYnEXD
