Toni Storm is officially ALL ELITE! The 26-year-old Australian made her AEW debut on this week’s edition of Dynamite when she was revealed as The Bunny’s mystery opponent in an Owen Hart Foundation Women’s Tournament Qualifier Match. Storm advanced to the first round of the tournament when she pinned The Bunny after hitting her with a Storm Zero.
Ahead of Dynamite, Fightful Select reported that Storm had been in talks with AEW and is very close to signing a deal. Apparently, multiple AEW stars have been pushing for AEW boss Tony Khan to sign the former WWE Superstar.
Storm parted ways with WWE via mutual consent in December 2021. According to Bodyslam.net, a source close to the situation revealed Storm just “up and quit”. In fact, she boarded a plane home, which she paid for herself, right after competing in a triple threat match at a live event. “Worked a triple threat at a house show last night and then paid out of her own pocket to fly herself home.”
Storm is engaged to New Japan Pro Wrestling star Juice Robinson. The couple announced their engagement back in October. Robinson and Storm’s relationship status was confirmed in the summer of 2020. The Mae Young Classic winner revealed that the two of them had been seeing each other for a while after Bea Priestley, who is now NXT UK’s Blair Davenport, posted photos of the two of them together on social media. Storm and Davenport are close friends.
