Only one more week until it's Toni Time!
On July 16, WWE SmackDown made its return to live crowds for the first time in 70 weeks. The show in Houston featured a vignette for Toni Storm that revealed she would be debuting on the blue brand next Friday.
The July 23 episode of SmackDown will be a split-site broadcast. Part of the program will air from the Rolling Loud festival in Miami, with the remainder emanating from Cleveland, OH.
Storm has been regularly featured on NXT since returning to the United States in October. She competed in the 2020 Women's Royal Rumble and wrestled a dark match before the July 2 episode of WWE Raw against Shotzi Blackheart and another dark match before the July 5 episode of WWE SmackDown against Tegan Nox.
Storm last wrestled a televised match on the May 18 episode of NXT, defeating Zoey Stark. She has been recently challenged by Sarray on NXT but has declined the match.
