Toni Storm Debuts on AEW Dynamite
Toni Storm has a track record of success everywhere she’s been including her stint in Stardom that saw her become the first, and so far only, wrestler in company history to win the Cinderella Tournament and 5STAR Grand Prix in the same year. She turned that momentum into a run as the top champion in Stardom before losing the title to Kagetsu. In the WWE, Storm was successful on their NXT UK brand where she was a women’s champion and won the second Mae Young Classic, she and Kairi Sane (now KAIRI) are still the only two winners to date.
The signing of Toni Storm should be a boost to the division as she is another well-liked name who fans care about that can help anchor the division.
