Furthermore, it’s unknown as to whether Storm will partake in this year’s Mae Young Classic or make NXT appearances.
Nevertheless, Storm is now being advertised for the WWE’s upcoming UK title tournament events in London on June 18th and June 19th.
The vast majority of professional wrestling experts believe that the WWE higher-ups are incredibly high on the 22 year old New Zealand-born Toni Storm.

Toni Storm is perhaps one of the greatest in-ring performers in the world right now.
Storm is an incredible athlete with tons of charisma—a rare combination that, if present, often propels a performer to super stardom in professional wrestling.
Here’s hoping Storm signs an NXT deal with the WWE, and goes on to achieve great success on the yellow brand, and eventually the main-roster over the next couple of years.
