Toni Storm is undoubtedly one of the great revelations of 2018, thanks to the skills and charisma shown on the NXT UK brand. In a recent interview with Sport Bible, Toni explained how her ring name was created.
“Ha-ha! Well, it changed to Toni Storm when I first moved out to the UK, so I was about 17 and I just got landed with it because I was originally just Storm. I got given that [name] when I was 13 and I stuck with it.
"It was because, to be honest, my grandmother thought it would be really cool. And I was debuting quite soon after training, so I needed a name fast and I went through every name and then my grandmother just thought it was great!” Storm explained.
On the NXT UK brand: “There’s definitely a lot of pressure and it’s definitely very difficult to deal with because, yeah, there’s a lot of weight on my shoulders and a lot of pressure to be the best in any locker room. But I just keep doing my thing. I keep pushing through. I figured that if I can come from nothing in Australia all the way to NXT UK, then there’s no limit to what I can do. So I just need to keep pushing like I always have done.”
