There’s your big surprise debut. There is something so special about seeing someone show up for the first time in a promotion. A wrestler showing up out of nowhere and immediately making an impact is one of the most exciting things there is in wrestling, especially if someone has been a star elsewhere. That is the case again, as a former WWE star has a new home.

Former WWE star Toni Storm made her AEW debut this week on Dynamite, defeating Bunny in an Owen Hart Foundation qualifying match. This was Storm’s first match since requesting and receiving her release from WWE in December. Storm had been rumored to be signing with AEW in recent days and was officially announced as part of the roster after her match was over.

Opinion: This is the kind of signing that often makes things more interesting, as Storm never got the chance to do much of anything in WWE despite the potential that she has. You can only get so far with Charlotte hitting you with a pie so hard that it leaves you standing there in shock, so she is certainly off to a better start. I want to see where she goes, and AEW could give her that chance.

What did you think of Storm’s debut? Who do you want to see her face in AEW? Let us know in the comments below.
