Toni Storm has not forgotten her past in WWE.
Toni Storm has broken out of the pack in AEW’s women’s division in recent weeks as she has taken on the character of a movie star from the golden age of Hollywood. The delusions of grandeur may have stemmed from her losing the AEW Women’s Title to Hikaru Shida on the 200th edition of Dynamite but since falling out with her Outcasts partners, things have only gotten worse.
Now on the latest installment of her Portrait of a Star series with the incomparable RJ City, Storm has seemingly recalled an infamous incident on WWE television where she slammed a pie into Charlotte Flair’s face:
“This business can be a cruel mistress. I do miss the old days, it was a happier time, a simpler time, slap on a backwards hat, slap a pie in someone’s face, they loved you!
“Now, it’s, ‘What have you done for me recently?’ Now it’s, if you don’t bleed and cry every week then you won’t get a good write-up in the trades.
“Well, pardon me for being a star, and if the world has forgotten what that looks like, then chin up, tits out, I guess I’ll just have to remind them.”

When did Toni Storm leave WWE?
Toni Storm spent most of her time in WWE on the NXT UK and NXT brands. She was called up to the main roster as part of SmackDown in the summer of 2021 and soon began a feud with Charlotte Flair.
At a live event on the 28th of December 2021, Flair won a triple threat match against Storm and Sasha Banks and that proved to be Storm’s final bout in the company. Toni Storm is believed to have flown herself home after that show and requested her release from WWE which was immediately granted.
