Today’s AEW Dynamite of Columbia, SC saw Storm emerge from the company as a mysterious talent that AEW President Tony Khan had been mocking. Storm defeated The Bunny in the first qualifying match for The Owen Hart Foundation Women’s Tournament.
AEW tweeted after the match, “Welcome to the team… #ToniStorm is #AllElite #AEWDynamite”
Storm requested her WWE release in late December, and it was granted. She recently became a free agent this week as his 90-day non-competition clause expired on Tuesday. Storm recently launched the OnlyFans account and was trending on social media for content he posted to fans.
Storm is the first wrestler to qualify for AEW’s Owen Hart Foundation Tournaments. The qualifiers are likely to continue in the next few weeks as the AEW previously announced that the first round matches will kick off with the May 11 AEW Dynamite program from UBS Arena in Long Island, NY. The finals of The Owen Hart Foundation Men’s & Women’s Tournaments will be at the 2022 AEW Double Or Nothing pay-per-view, scheduled for Sunday 29 May at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Drs. Martha Hart will be performing at Double Or Nothing presenting the winners of their trophy called “The Owen” Cup.
