WWE Superstar showers praise on Toni Storm for her AEW gimmick
In August 2023, Toni Storm suffered a series of setbacks. First, she lost the AEW Women's Championship to Hikaru Shida on the road to the company's biggest pay-per-view, All In. Then, after failing to regain her title, she got ousted from her stable, "The Outcasts."
The events led to a transition in Storm's on-screen character, and she began portraying herself as a Hollywood Starlet from the 1950s. The gimmick, "Timeless" Toni Storm, has been applauded by wrestling fans and critics.
"Killing it. We talk every now and then, I don't get to see her as much because we both have crazy schedules. We check on each other every so often. She's doing good. It's so good. It's very her as well. She's the best. 'Chin up, t*ts out,' that's the most Toni thing she could possibly say," Tegan Nox said. (H/t Fightful)
