The promo also replayed the part where Storm warned Shirai and the rest of the locker room about her arrival.
She stated that all other women need to have their head on a swivel as she is returning. She was seen in Cancun, Mexico during the promo. "This is the place that I knew I could come to and focus, and escape, be alone. It would be the last place anyone would find me," Storm said.
"So, what am I doing now? I am preparing. This is the longest time I've been off in ten years. I've been doing this since I was 12. "Two years ago i was on top of the world. I won the Mae Young Classic, I beat Io Shirai at Evolution, I then went on to become NXT UK Women's Champion.
All those accomplishments and then look at now. When was the last time you've heard of me? I promise that was on purpose, this is calculated. To start again I need to evolve, new opponents. I need a change of scenery and this Toni Storm is like nothing you've ever seen before."
