Toni Storm is still focused on becoming the NXT Women’s Championship and she will have a one-on-one chance against the champion on March 10.
After Shirai defeated Zoey Stark in a great match for the newcomer, Storm made her way out on the stage. She reminds Shriai that it was Mercedes Martinez that the champion pinned during their Triple Threat match at Vengeance Day and not her. With this being said, Storm feels that Shirai cannot beat her one-on-one. Shirai responds saying she will take on the challenge anytime, anyplace, anywhere.
Prior encounters between these two competitors in singles action have resulted in a DQ to Storm’s favor in January 2020. Storm also defeated Shirai at Evolution to win the second Mae Young Classic in 2018.
If Toni is able to defeat Io then she will become the second woman to have held both the NXT UK and NXT Women’s Titles. Second of course to Rhea Ripley.
Do you think Shirai’s time as champion may be over or will her reign continue in two weeks? Leave your thoughts below.
