Pro Wrestling Sheet recently conducted a great interview with Toni Storm. The NXT UK Women’s Champion discussed her upcoming match at NXT UK TakeOver: Cardiff, and the current state of the promotion.
Check out some highlights below:
On being the face of NXT UK’s women’s division:
It’s kind of a lot of pressure, but it is honestly a dream come true. I wouldn’t want it any other way. I’m proud of it, I’m happy with it and obviously all work has gotta go into it to maintain it and just push it to its next level.
Who she thinks will become stars:
I’m really glad that Piper Niven is finally with NXT UK. I’m so happy about that because I genuinely think she doesn’t get enough recognition. The talent in that woman is unbelievable and I really think it’s time for the world to really see just how important she is.
I’ve never seen anyone work as hard as [Jack Starz]. Obviously he’s not in the highest position, but he’s actually a hidden gem. If you watch him train, and you watch how hard he works, I don’t think there’s anyone more deserving. He’s really underrated and there isn’t enough eyes on him. Those kinda things take time and he’ll eventually get the recognition he deserves cause it’s been a long time coming.
Her TakeOver match against Kay Lee Ray:
We’ve wrestled each other everywhere. All over the world. A few hundred matches. I’ve known her for a very long time. Unfortunately things aren’t the way they were anymore, a lot of personal aspects have been brought into it, but at the same time … I know we’re gonna steal the show because we always have in the past. I don’t think I’ve ever had a better opponent. And we go back so long, I know it’s gonna be war. I know it’s gonna be a complete battle, but it’s gonna be fire.
