As previously reported, last week's episode of SmackDown featured a teaser video vignette of NXT Star Toni Storm, where it was revealed that she will be making her debut to the SmackDown brand soon. Last night's episode of SmackDown, which was the Money in the Bank go-home show, featured another vignette of NXT Star Toni Storm, revealing that she will make her official blue brand debut during next week's show.
Next week's episode of SmackDown, which is the post-Money in the Bank show, will feature a split-site type of broadcast, with a number of matches taking place from the Rolling Loud rap festival in Miami, Florida and the rest of the show taking place from the Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse in Cleveland, Ohio.
In June 2017, Toni Storm made her WWE in-ring debut during the first-ever Mae Young Classic. NXT Star Toni Storm would then end up winning the 2018 Mae Young Classic at the all-women's PPV Event known as Evolution in October of 2018 after signing a deal with the WWE in May 2018. Storm then became the NXT UK Women's Champion by defeating the current RAW Women's Champion Rhea Ripley at the NXT UK TakeOver: Blackpool Event in January 2019 after she started working for the NXT UK brand in the summer of 2018.
She would then make her return to the NXT brand in October 2020 after taking an 8 month hiatus. Storm last competed for the NXT brand on the May 18th episode, when she beat Zoey Stark, who is one-half of the NXT Women’s Tag Team Champion, in a Singles Match.
