Let’s take a look at 5 interesting things about the impressive superstar and how that can help her ultimately become the face of WWE’s women division.
#5 She has traveled a lot to train
Born in Auckland, New Zealand she made her first wrestling debut at the young age of thirteen at the Impact Pro Wrestling Australia (IPWA) on 9th October 2009. After her debut, she felt that she needed to train harder and she convinced her mother to let her move to Liverpool, England with her grandmother.
Toni trained under Dean Allmark during her time in Liverpool, who is a professional English Wrestler.
Toni calls Liverpool her home but her love for wrestling has made her travel far and wide for training. She has spent most of the previous year training in Japan, which isn't an easy feat as she loves being home and spending time in her own bed.
This ambitious girl stepping out of the comfort zone to challenge her skills is the most important thing which has brought her a lot of success at such a young age.
