WWE Money in the Bank: Naomi's Ring Gear Inspired by Classic Teen Titan

The following contains spoilers for the 2019 Money in the Bank WWE event.

WWE Superstar Naomi used her ring gear to pay tribute to a classic member of the Teen Titans' roster during the 2019 Money in the Bank pay-per-view.

The wrestler sported the black-and-yellow striped top, black tights, hair buns and wings worn by the DC character Karen Beecher/Bumblebee, a superhero with the ability to shrink to the size of an insect and fly using her solar-powered suit. Naomi even came to the ring holding Bumblebee's "stingers," the weapons used by the hero to fire energy blasts at her opponents.

Naomi (real name Trinity Fatu), a two-time SmackDown Women's Champion, was one of the participants in the 2019 Women's Money in the Bank ladder match. The other participants were Carmella, Dana Brooke, Ember Moon, Mandy Rose, Natalya, Nikki Cross and, the eventual winner, Bayley.

Created by Bob Rozakis and Irv Novick, Karen Beecher first appeared in 1976's Teen Titans #45 before taking up the Bumblebee mantle three issues later in Teen Titans #48.

The character is perhaps best known for her role in Cartoon Network's Teen Titans animated series, in which she is introduced as a student at the villainous H.I.V.E. Academy before being revealed as a double agent tasked with gaining intel on the organization.

Bumblebee went on to form the Titans East alongside Aqualad, Speedy, Más y Menos and, eventually, Cyborg. She was later named the leader of the Titans East when Cyborg departed the team in order to rejoin the original Teen Titans lineup.
