WWE Smackdown: Toni Storm will boost the Blue brand’s women roster
Two weeks back, Shotzi Blackheart and Tegan Nox made their surprise debut on WWE Smackdown. For months, the Blue brand has been lacking female competitors, and they are in dire need of new talent to grace the ring.
Currently, Smackdown’s female roster comprises names like Bianca Belair, Natalya, Sasha Banks, Tamina, Liv Morgan, Carmella, Nox, Shotzi, and Zelina Vega. With Sasha Banks already not appearing on WWE TV since Wrestlemania 37, it is obvious that the Blue brand is willing to have a few female superstars onboard.
WWE Smackdown: What will Toni Storm bring to the table?
Toni Storm is both a brawler and nimble on her feet. Irrespective of the character, Toni will be a strong competitor in Smackdown’s women task force, and many see her as a future champion.
