Toni Storm will be returning in time for PROGRESS Wrestling's Wembley Arena show later this month.

PROGRESS announced today that the Women's Championship match for the September 30 event will be Jinny defending her title against Storm and Millie McKenzie in a triple threat match: "BREAKING: with confirmation from our medical team that @tonistorm_ will be fit to compete by 30th Sept, both she and @MillieMcKenzie0 take their title shots and look to dethrone the #Queen @JinnyCouture when we head to @ssearena!"

Storm also tweeted about the match announcement: "I’ll be back stronger than ever"

On August 26, Storm suffered an apparent injury when losing to Rhea Ripley in the finals of WWE's tournament to crown the first NXT United Kingdom Women's Champion. She missed PROGRESS' show the next day and was pulled from events for PROGRESS and wXw last weekend.

Dave Meltzer reported last Thursday that it was a spine injury that Storm suffered and noted that the injury wasn't believed to be too serious at that time.

Storm is set to face Io Shirai in the finals of the Mae Young Classic at WWE Evolution on October 28.
