Toni Storm Debuts On AEW Dynamite
Storm is All Elite
Toni Storm debuted for AEW on Wednesday night's Dynamite in Columbia, SC, as the mystery entrant in the women's Owen Hart Cup tournament qualifier.
Storm defeated The Bunny in the qualifying match, after pinning her with a Strong Zero piledriver.
After the match, AEW tweeted the standard "is All Elite" graphic.
With her win, Storm becomes the first wrestler to qualify for either of the Owen Hart Cup tournaments. The finals of both the men's and women's tournaments will take place at Double or Nothing on Sunday, May 29 in Las Vegas.
Storm left WWE in the final week of 2021, after requesting her release. Her final match came at a house show in Washington, DC, taking part in a SmackDown Women's title triple threat involving Charlotte Flair and Sasha Banks.
Storm won the 2018 Mae Young Classic, defeating Io Shirai in the finals. She held the NXT UK Women's title for seven and a half months in 2019, winning the title from Rhea Ripley and then losing it to Kay Lee Ray. Storm debuted on the SmackDown brand in July 2021, where she remained up until asking for her release.
