Toni Storm

Toni Rossall, better known by her ring name Toni Storm, is a New Zealand-born Australian wrestler and model signed to All Elite Wrestling and the current holder of the AEW Women's World Championship.

She made her debut in Impact Pro Wrestling Australia at the age of 13 and she decided to become a professional wrestler and convinced her mother to move to Liverpool. While she lived in England, she was coached by Dean Allmark. She began working in various countries including Finland, France, Germany and Spain. She took part in a WWE tryout match on an Australian tour in Melbourne in 2014 and the UK in 2015.

She made her Progress Wrestling debut on April 14, 2015, where she was defeated by Elizabeth.

On December 29, 2021 she left WWE and the following day journalist Dave Meltzer stated that the decision was made by Rossall herself to combat the anxiety problems and panic attacks she had been suffering from for several years now.

Following the 90-day no-compete clause in WWE contracts, she signed with All Elite Wrestling and made her debut on the March 30 episode of Dynamite, where she defeated The Bunny to qualify for the Owen Hart Foundation Tournament.
