Toni Storm Match Against Bea Priestley Canceled, WWE Intervened

According to the Wrestling Observer, WWE would not allow NXT United Kingdom women's champion Toni Storm face-off against AEW star Bea Priestley at a STARDOM event scheduled for later this month. Storm had already had matches this past week with Tam Nakano and Mom Wantanabe for the Japanese promotion, but due to Priestley's affiliation with AEW, Storm was pulled. STARDOM issued the following statement online.

For the upcoming Korakuen Hall show on May 16, the previously announced match between Toni Storm and Bea Priestley will not take place due to circumstances beyond our control. Thank you for undestanding.

Reports indicate that another reason the match was called off was that Storm was likely to lose to Priestley since the latter was the current STARDOM world champion.
