Toni Storm is the new NXT UK Women’s champion. Storm won the title from Rhea Ripley at the NXT UK Takeover: Blackpool event on January 12. Storm spoke with WWE following her win.
This victory was a long time coming for Storm. The rising women’s star won a phenomenal match against Io Shirai last year and that win came in the tournament finals of the Mae Young Classic. It was obvious that Toni was up for something big and now she is a champion in WWE.
But even though she has her first taste of gold in the company, many fans are already looking toward Toni’s future. She should have a successful title run in NXT UK. However that run could eventually lead her to the main roster of the company.
Charlotte Flair versus an established Toni Storm could be a dream match in the not too distant future. The same could be said of Storm versus Becky Lynch, or possibly even Storm versus Ronda Rousey.
But right now, all eyes on are Toni Storm as the top female Superstar on the NXT UK brand. The champ is here and she’s only just getting started.
