Toni Storm was reportedly not booked for live event in DC, WWE called her at 8 am to fly out to the show

Dave Meltzer has more notes on Toni Storm in the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter.

As previously noted, Storm quit WWE this week and the company granted her release but it is unknown at this time if she is under a 90 day or longer non-compete, similar to Renee Paquette’s one-year non-compete when she left the company.

Meltzer said that another story going around is that Storm was never booked for the house show in Washington, DC and it was a last minute call and she was told at 8 am that morning. Meltzer added that she’s walking away from a good main roster contract. The main reason going around about Storm’s exit is that she felt burned out. A few weeks back, Storm talked about her frustration about having to sit in catering at SmackDown.

Storm is a great worker and she showed from the beginning with her in-ring work and charisma that she could become a top star in the business but the company never got fully behind her and when she started the program with Charlotte Flair, she was booked to get pies thrown in her face and was essentially treated as a second-tier star instead of someone who could eventually make it as a main eventer.

If Storm has a 90-day non-compete then expect to see her get tons of offers from the independent companies and from AEW and Impact Wrestling. Storm’s fiance Juice Robinson works for New Japan Pro Wrestling so she could possibly have a spot there as a non-wrestler as well.
