Last week’s Battle Royal figured to provide some clarity in the black-and-gold brand’s Women’s Division, but chaos continues to rule the day.
Days before her chance to knock off NXT Champion Rhea Ripley, Toni Storm looked to add another feather to her cap with a victory against Io Shirai. Storm claimed the win, but not in the manner she wanted, as it came through a disqualification after Bianca Belair attacked her. The actions of Belair — who won last week’s Battle Royal to become next in line for a championship opportunity — didn’t sit well with The Evil Genius of the Sky, who made that clear by retaliating.
Not one to be left out, Ripley soon joined the fray. When the dust settled, however, Storm was standing tall with Ripley’s title in hand — perhaps a preview of Saturday at WWE Worlds Collide.
