Tony Khan Shares Toni Storm's Reaction Following Her Debut Match In AEW

Tony Khan loves having Toni Storm in All Elite Wrestling.

Toni Storm left WWE in December despite being involved in a SmackDown Women's Championship feud with Charlotte Flair. Once her 90-day non-compete clause expired, Storm signed with AEW, making her debut on the March 30 episode of AEW Dynamite where she defeated The Bunny to qualify for the Owen Hart Foundation Women's Tournament.

On the latest edition of Rasslin' with Brandon F. Walker, AEW President Tony Khan commented on Storm's arrival, saying that she has drawn lots of interest amongst fans. Furthermore, Khan detailed Storm's reaction following her debut match against The Bunny, admitting that he's never seen anyone more relieved to have wrestled a match.

"Toni Storm has come into AEW not just with a great track record and a lot of fans supporting her, but she said this has brought back her love of wrestling already. The way she reacted when she came through the curtain after the match (against The Bunny), I don't know if I've ever seen somebody more relieved to have wrestled a match than Toni Storm after taking the 90 days off. She came back in great shape, she looks great, she is a great person, and I love having her in AEW. When she squared off with Jamie Hayter face-to-face, that was a big deal. So, having Toni Storm here is great," Khan said.
