Toni Storm released by WWE



Fightful is reporting that Toni Storm has been released by WWE.

Storm recently wrestled Charlotte Flair last Friday night on SmackDown. There's no word on what led to her release or if this is something she requested.

Storm was on Ryan Satin's "Out of Character" podcast this week and she talked about sitting in catering after being called up to the main roster.

"When you’re sat in catering, it’s not a good feeling,” she said (h/t SEScoops). “Just sitting there waiting for your shot. Waiting for your big break. Waiting to show everyone what you’ve worked your life to be good at. I just sat there [asking] ‘When am I next? What’s happening?’ Now [when] stuff starts happening, I’m still like, ‘what’s going on?’ Oh, my God. What is my life?"

Storm would presumably have a 90-day non-compete in place so she would not be able to negotiate with other promotions until late March.
