According to The UK Mirror, WWE UK talent Toni Storm will compete in this year’s WWE Mae Young Classic. Storm made her WWE debut in last year’s Classic, and the 22-year-old Australian-born talent had the following to say on returning to the tournament.
“It’s just strange because I feel like my brain still hasn’t let it sink in yet that I am associated with WWE. I have strived for it for so long and dreamt of getting into WWE from being a kid and I have never let it go. It’s completely surreal, a lot of the time I kind of don’t even think I have got there.”
On being part of the new WWE UK brand, Storm had the following to say:
“It is so surreal and I am so nervous about it. I just forget how incredible it is and have to pinch myself. The UK has a division and I am one of the first to be a part of that. The pressure keeps on rising and there is a lot to push for.”
Storm also commented on the announcement of WWE Evolution with the following:
“I was just so happy because there has been so much hard work from girls across the world. We all wanted better opportunities and we have all worked so hard to get it. So many girls have put in so much effort. so it’s emotional to see these things going on now. It is going to give us more opportunity to shine and put even more eyes on us. As much as pro wrestling is a competitive industry, I am very proud of all the girls who have worked to get us to this point.”
