Toni Storm made her return to WWE television last year and since then fans had clamored to see her in the main event title picture. Charlotte Flair snubbed her on a title opportunity on a couple of occasions. In fact, Flair was originally supposed to strip Toni Storm instead of throwing pies in an infamous segment on Friday Night Smackdown.
All of this eventually led to a feud that featured them throwing pies at each other, which was not something fans wanted to see at all. In the end, Toni Storm left WWE without giving any prior notice to anyone.
While speaking on AEW Unrestricted, Toni Storm was asked about the pie throwing segments in WWE. Storm revealed that original plans would have seen Flair strip Toni Storm down to her underwear to humiliate her.
“I was actually quite happy with that segment that day. It was a lot better than the original idea. The original idea was like, I was called up and asked if I was comfortable having my shirt ripped off or something. They wanted to do this whole angle where they wanted to rip my shirt off to be embarrassed, to my underwear, I guess. When you’re asked if you’re comfortable to do that and literally, people are being fired every single week, it’s like, ‘Well, yeah, I guess I’m comfortable with that.’
Then, a lot of people fought to not have that happen. That would have been a terrible idea. To be honest, the pie was actually quite a sweet treat in comparison to what it could have been. In hindsight, I don’t really mad. I’m not even mad. People think I’m mad, I think it’s hilarious, standing there covered in pie. I can demolish food, so if they’re throwing food at me, that was a good day. Not painful at all. That was a good one, to be honest. That was one of my better times
Toni Storm eventually made her way to AEW, where she is now in the finals of the Owen Hart Women’s Tournament. Storm is glad for her time in WWE but is more than happy working for AEW now. We’ll have to see if Storm will end up winning the tournament or not.
