According to reports, WWE released Toni Storm per her request. Also, fans are reacting in a positive way for Toni.
WWE Reportedly Released Toni Storm Per Her Request
This has nothing to do with the mass WWE cuts for an over a year now. A memo about sent to talent this afternoon about her departure.
She was in town for Baltimore, but left this morning. WWE is there for a live event in town.
Storm has been feuding with SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair lately. They wrestled last Friday on SmackDown and live events this weekend.
She began working with WWE in the summer of 2017. Then, she won the 2018 Mae Young Classic and seemed set for a major push.
She worked in NXT UK and won the Women’s Championship. Eventually, she was sent to NXT where she became a heel and then joined the main roster.
Storm’s really only big angle was the recent one with Charlotte Flair. Surely, a major loss for WWE as fans adored her and she knew how to wrestle.
For now, there is no word on what led to her departure. The not so great booking probably did not help.
Bummed to hear Toni Storm is no longer with the WWE, I was looking forward to seeing her against @MsCharlotteWWE this coming year.

If you’re surprised Toni Storm asked for her release, then you haven’t been paying attention.
This woman was showcased like a STAR on NXT. Then she gets called up and put in catering for months only to feud with Charlotte Flair over pies.

Sucks to hear that Toni Storm is no longer with WWE. If she chose to leave, I hope everything is ok. She was just starting to get a push.

Do you think Toni Storm will sign with AEW, or do you think she’ll use a different name?

AEW already has way too many people on its roster but Toni Storm would obviously be a huge boon to the women’s division.
