Toni Storm recently moved from WWE NXT to SmackDown over the summer. She says there are some major differences between the two brands. The former WWE NXT UK Women’s Champion was candid about the major changes the call-up led to in her life.
Speaking to WWE Deutschland, Storm said it’s hard to adjust to life back on the road. She was used to barely doing any travel before. Now, it’s never-ending.
“Everything is different, like the whole thing. To be honest it has been a totally different change to my entire life. Now I’m back on the road after like barely traveling for such a long time.
It’s just everything. Everything down to the people, the way it’s run, everything is completely the opposite. It’s been quite an adjustment just trying to figure out how to find my feet in the roster. But its been cool. A lot of the girls have been really cool and welcoming, helping me backstage.”
Toni also said that the recent call-ups from the NXT women’s division have given the SmackDown equivalent a sense of freshness. Storm said there’s a good vibe. She thinks the company is on to something special.
“I feel like there’s very much something special in the air. There’s a good vibe surrounding all of it and I’m very excited about all of it. I don’t know, I absolutely love all the call-ups. I think we are onto something special here. We are shaking things up. It’s new, it’s fresh, it’s cool. I think people are really going to enjoy what we have to give them.”
Toni Storm made her WWE debut in the 2017 Mae Young Classic. She joined NXT in 2018 and was moved to SmackDown earlier this year. She won the 2018 Mae Young tournament and is a former NXT UK Women’s champion.
