Following the surprise departure of Toni Storm from WWE several of her fellow Superstars, as well as competitors from AEW, have reacted publicly.

Toni Storm made her WWE debut in the summer of 2017, appearing in the Mae Young Classic. She then went on to win the tournament the following year before winning the NXT UK Womenโ€™s Title.

After a stint on NXT, Storm became a permanent fixture on the main roster on July 9th, 2021. Most recently the New Zealander has been seen on SmackDown losing to Charlotte Flair in a SmackDown Womenโ€™s Title match on Christmas Eve.

Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful first reported that Toni Storm was “gone” from the company, later stating that the belief was that the former NXT UK Women’s Champion had requested her departure.

Now several members of the wrestling world have paid tribute to Storm by sharing photos of the star on social media.

There may be more to AEW Women’s World Champion Dr. Britt Baker’s post as AEW’s resident Role Model may be hoping she has a new challenger to her crown in Storm.

Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch also added her thoughts on the situation saying that she hoped to face Storm in the ring one day.
