Her announcement revealed that Toni Storm is her idol and now she is ready to battle her inside the ring.

Why did Shotzi Blackheart choose Toni Storm?

Shotzi Blackheart was the host of NXT’s Halloween Havoc. She executed the event to perfection with excellent horror elements. She saved the WWE NXT Women’s title match by preventing a masked invader from assisting Candice LeRae to defeat Io Shirai.

After her excellent conduct during Halloween Havoc, NXT General Manager, William Regal, gave her this opportunity.

Considering her choice, she is not looking for an easy win. Whoever wins this match will be a step closer to being able to challenge Io Shirai for the WWE NXT Women’s Championship Title.

Toni Storm aims to go after the championship belt

Toni Storm is a former NXT UK Women’s Champion. She became the champion by defeating Rhea Ripley at NXT UK TakeOver: Blackpool.

The Superstar comes with a style that is a blend of 80s metal vibes and 90s Japanese vibes. Her unique style both inside and outside the ring has taken her to soaring heights in the wrestling world.

The first time she made a mark within the wrestling universe was with her performances at the first two Mae Young Classics. Her victory over Io Shirai in the 2018 version generously aided her in taking over the WWE.
