Toni Storm is one of many former WWE stars to make the jump to AEW as she made her AEW debut last month on Dynamite where she defeated The Bunny to qualify for the Owen Hart Women’s Tournament.

During an appearance on Busted Open Radio, Storm was asked the one name from WWE she would like to see join AEW, which is Nixon Newell (Tegan Nox). Storm feels Newell deserves a spot.

“Tegan Nox, I would have to say would be high up on that list [of people I would like to see in AEW]. I think that would be someone who would really deserve an awesome spot like that and I know she loves this business as much as I do so that would be cool to see that one day in the future. Who knows? Anything can happen. It’s pro wrestling [Toni chuckled].”

After getting over with the fans in NXT despite her pushes being stopped due to injuries, she was called up to the main roster alongside Shotzi in July 2021. Nox and Shotzi were pushed strongly at first including a non-title win over then-WWE Women's Tag Team Champions Natalya and Tamina, but never received a championship match.

In last year’s Draft, she was moved to Raw, which split her from Shotzi. Last November, she was released from her WWE contract without ever appearing on Raw.

Storm also opened up about her decision to leave WWE in this interview where she noted the company wasn’t the place for her.
