NXT UK Superstar Toni Storm was recently interviewed by the Express, where she discussed Roman Reigns and his battle once again with leukemia, her upcoming NXT UK Women’s title match, and the first NXT UK TakeOver event.
Below are the highlights from Toni Storm’s interview with the Express.
Roman Reigns’ battle against Leukemia:
“Obviously it’s terrible news. Not just for NXT UK but everyone in the WWE Universe, whether it’s fans or roster members. It’s quite a shock to everyone but we’re all going to stay positive for Roman. We’ll see him back soon, I’m sure we will.”
Storm on her NXT UK Women’s Title Match against Rhea Ripley at NXT UK “Takeover: Blackpool” on January 12:
“This is potentially the biggest match of my career so far. Obviously I have already fought Rhea for the NXT UK Women’s Championship and I came up short. I actually got injured in that match, my legs lost feeling and I went through a horrible injury. But I won the Mae Young Classic and I get another shot at a TakeOver. There’s a lot of pressure on me right now going into this but I got a good feeling and I think it’s going to be a really successful night.”
What she thinks about WWE’s NXT UK brand putting on their first TakeOver event:
“I just can’t believe that NXT UK have already got their first TakeOver, this is massive news for WWE and the UK. It’s going to be insane, I’m nervous already and it’s only December. I’m just very excited. I think it’s going to turn a lot of heads for the other WWE roster members and American fans. I think it’s going to be quite a head-turner and we’re going to bring our A-game for this one.”
