This women’s wrestler isn’t technically signed by the WWE, but Toni Storm is in the WWE’s Mae Young Classic tournament.

Storm was born in New Zealand, moved to Australia at a young age and then moved to England when she was 13. She immediately started wrestling school and debuted soon after in 2009.  

She has been a huge part of the resurgence of women’s wrestling in Japan and Europe. She is the current SWA champion in the all-female Stardom promotion. She is also the titleholder in PROGRESS, AAW, British Empire and other promotions.
