Toni Storm is All Elite and advances to the second round of the Owen Hart Tournament.
We were promised tonight on Dynamite that there will be additional women’s AEW teams (Mar. 30). Toni Storm was supposed to make her debut tonight, but now that she’s All Elite, I don’t believe they’ll be disappointed.
Toni Storm triumphed in her debut appearance on AEW television, which was even less shocking. Sorry about that, Bunny. She fought the former NXT UK Women’s champion after the commercial break and had a pair of near falls. Toni, on the other hand, countered Bunny’s finisher with her own Storm Zero. She will now participate in May in the inaugural annual Owen Cup.
Toni Storm has a proven track record of success, including her time in Stardom, where she became the first, and so far only, a wrestler in company history to win both the Cinderella Tournament and the 5STAR Grand Prix in the same year. She used her momentum to become the top champion in Stardom until losing it to Kagetsu. Storm was successful in the WWE under their NXT UK brand, where she was a women’s champion and won the second Mae Young Classic; she and Kairi Sane (now KAIRI) are the only two winners to date.
