The match up will not be a rematch, instead, it will be the number one contender’s official bet for the title as her original opportunity got scrapped from the lineup of Chapter 62 when she got injured ahead of Storm’s return to the country.
Jinny was able to choose a replacement, with Chakara getting the title shot in her absence. It was the post-match beatdown where Jinny introduced a new stable with Chakara, Nina Samuels and now Charlie Morgan following behind.
The defense takes place eight days before her reign reaches a full year on May 20th at the Victoria Warehouse.
Storm recently crossed the threshold of reigning for 300 days!
