Toni Storm Says She Recently Thought Of Retiring

Toni Storm left WWE in December despite being involved in a SmackDown Women's Championship feud with Charlotte.

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 Women's Tournament.

On the latest AEW Road To, Storm commented on her return to the ring.

"Recently, I planned on retiring from the wrestling industry, which is something I never considered in my entire life. I've put my entire life into becoming the best professional wrestler I could be. I lost that part of myself and it brought on a lot of feelings of emptiness and sadness that I can't even describe. I traveled the entire world to be good at this. Just like Owen Hart did. AEW is home to the best women's division on the planet. I just qualified for the Owen Hart women's tournament. For the first time ever, I can truly say that I am home," she said.

During a recent virtual signing, Storm mentioned that she is excited to be consistent and wrestle in AEW. You can find her full comments by clicking here.
