WWE: 5 Independent Wrestling Stars They Should Target

4 of 6

3. Toni Storm

If you watch the above video you’ll see the the two women engaged in this amazing match, Io Shirai and Toni Storm, both seem like potential future WWE stars.  This is a hard-hitting, high-flying chess match between two of the very best female wrestlers on Earth who aren’t currently signed to the company. So with recent news that Shirai not only tried out for the WWE but was actually offered a contract, the big questions that remains is, when is Storm’s contract offer?  The New Zealand-based superstar had  WWE tryouts in Australia and the UK in 2014 and 2015 respectively but at the time was only 18 and 19 years old.  Now at 21, Storm seems to have come into her own and looks to be a superstar in the making.

At such a shockingly young age for someone to look so good in the ring, Storm has already made her mark on the indie scene.  A pro for six years now, Storm has won world championships on 3 different continents and seems to get better with each passing match.  She has all the tools to be a big star.  She’s great in the ring, she’s beautiful, and she has seemingly limitless ring psychology.  At just 5 foot 1 and 125 pounds, she’s a bit under-sized but that shouldn’t be a deal-breaker for the WWE as in just the last 6 months, “Five Feet of Fury”, Alexa Bliss has become a two-time women’s champion.

Storm is the current world champion in Stardom Wrestling, a place that she has grown exponentially.  She falls into that perfect kind of gray area of really young but already with a wealth of talent and experience.  If the WWE does indeed sign her and play their cards right, we could be looking at a potential decade-long star and could be the future wave of great female wrestlers from all over the globe.
