Toni Storm off weekend shows due to injury

Editor's note: This article references results from WWE's Mae Young Classic and NXT UK TV tapings which have yet to air.

Toni Storm has been pulled from the wXw and PROGRESS shows this weekend following an injury suffered last weekend.

Both PROGRESS and wXw announced today that Storm, who is the wXw Women’s Champion, would have to pull out of her appearances for their shows in Germany. In wXw's announcement, it was noted that she is awaiting further examination to determine the extent of the injury. The announcement also noted that since the women's title hasn't been defended in four months, wXw has officially vacated the title.

This past weekend, Storm was a part of the NXT UK tapings in Birmingham. She competed in a two night tournament for the NXT UK Women’s title, and made it to the finals against Rhea Ripley. According to reports, the X sign was held by the referee after the match, which Ripley won. No further details are known regarding what kind of injury Storm suffered during the match, but she was able to walk to the back unassisted following the bout.

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