It looks like Toni Storm is headed to WWE, at least for a couple of shows next month. An ad aired during the live event in Bournemouth, UK on Wednesday to hype the upcoming United Kingdom tournament that will air on the WWE Network next month. The shows will be taped on 6/18 and 6/19 and presumably will air on the network a few days later.
Storm has been on WWE’s radar since the 2017 Mae Young Classic tournament. At the time, it was believed that she was one of the favorites to get a contract. No deal was signed but she was part of live events that took place at WrestleMania AXXESS in New Orleans.
The 22-year old from Auckland, New Zealand has been one of the standout performers on the independent scene. Aside from her great in-ring work, she is also very charismatic and she seemingly checks off everything WWE would want in a wrestler. I would be surprised if she was not signed to a deal by the end of this year, if not sooner.
