Toni Storm opens up on leaving WWE
Storm let go by WWE as she had asked for her release. She was called up to the main roster as part of Friday Night Smackdown on July 23rd last year and was not utilized well at all. She was even gone from WWE television for a long time until she started a feud with Charlotte Flair.
On Friday’s episode of Busted Open Radio, Storm spoke about the factors that led to her departure from the company.
“I guess I just freaked out and went home,” Storm said flatly.
The reasons are more complicated than that and Storm did not provide many details about what was happening to her behind the scenes in WWE. She did make it clear that she was feeling overwhelmed by mounting pressure mentally and emotionally.
“I went two and a half years without going home at all and that’s after a life of like – well, about seven years of being on the road,” Storm explained. “Like, I left for England. About seven or eight years had passed and I was like, ‘Oh my God!’ And then take into account the amount of negativity that you hear about WWE and then add that on top of it. And I’m not saying that I had a problem with WWE at all. I’m actually really grateful for the time that I got to have there. I learned so much. And you know what? It was so cool. It was real and it was cool. But in the end, it wasn’t real cool. And something just happened and I left. And it felt – I felt like I was having an out-of-body experience, to be honest.
“I just kinda – you know, have you ever lost it? Have you ever just lost your mind? That’s kinda what happened, I guess. The stress of not seeing family in years and then just so many overwhelming things all at once and uh, yeah. I’ve been happier ever since.”
She has also launched an OnlyFans account which is earning her huge load of money. The former WWE star had revealed that she will be launching an OnlyFans account. She then launched her OnlyFans account on March 19th and already made a ton of cash due to the huge success of her account. Next week’s AEW Rampage will also feature a preview of The Owen Hart Foundation Women’s Tournament as Toni Storm and Ruby Soho team up to take on Jamie Hayter and Britt Baker.
