Toni Storm Admits Frustration At Being Interim AEW Women's World Champion
Toni Storm wants to be AEW Women's World Champion, not just an interim titleholder
All Elite Wrestling currently have two women's champions, with Toni Storm currently competing as the Interim AEW Women's World Champion while AEW Women's World Champion Thunder Rosa is on the shelf due to injury.
Storm was originally scheduled to face Rosa at All Out prior to La Mera Mera's injury and the former NXT star has admitted it is "a bit of a bummer" to just be interim champion.
"It is a bit of a bummer. Thunder Rosa is still technically considered champion, even though I would consider myself a champion. It's a bit frustrating for me right now. I guess when she is good to be back, I'll be champion," Storm told TV Insider.
Storm is confident she will be AEW Women's World Champion but Toni admitted it will be difficult when her reign begins.
"As champion, it's going to be difficult. I knew when I won not to get too excited because I knew it was going to be hard. I'm not too worried about it. Thunder Rosa can come back and I'll beat her. Then we'll all be good. When you become champion, that's when the real sh*t starts to happen. I'm thinking about what kind of champion I'm going to be. If you're a good champion, there are obstacles you have to overcome. I will have to work twice as hard," she added.
Storm captured the Interim AEW Women's World Title at All Out. She successfully defended the championship at Dynamite Grand Slam against Britt Baker, Serena Deeb, and Athena.
