Australian Toni Storm’s WWE Dream
Toni Storm was wrestling on the Gold Coast at the age of 13. Now, she's close to landing a contract with the WWE.
Australia could soon have another global sporting superstar, as Toni Storm continues to get closer to her dream of landing a spot on the WWE roster.
Storm was born in New Zealand but grew up on the Gold Coast (so we’ll happily claim her), and has been wrestling since the age of 13. Nine years later, she has been touted as the next big thing in women’s wrestling, and has already attracted attention from the WWE.
In the last year, she’s wrestled in Japan, Australia and the United States, with a memorable appearance in the WWE’s Mae Young Classic, a 32 competitor tournament for women wrestlers who usually compete outside of the WWE.
The tournament provides all invitees with a chance to perform on the highly coveted WWE stage, and Storm’s appearance was a success, as she made it to the final four of the tournament and was given four matches to showcase her talent and audition for a permanent role in the company.
And with recent reports that the WWE is planning a Pay Per View event at the MCG in October this year, it would be perfect timing for Storm to launch her career in front of 100,000 Aussie wrestling fans. With her good looks and charismatic nature, we believe she could eventually become the face of the WWE women’s division and put Australia on the wrestling map.
"My goal from the very beginning has been WWE...it's what I've wanted since I was 10. I know that I'll get there because I'm putting my whole life into this” Storm said. Many wrestling pundits have stated that Storm is likely to achieve her dream very soon. We hope they’re correct!
