Toni Storm looks back on a segment she was involved in on Friday Night SmackDown.

Before exiting WWE and joining All Elite Wrestling, Toni Storm was a member of the SmackDown roster. In December, she was a part of an on-screen program with then-SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair and they had two matches with one another.

There was a segment on the 11/26 SmackDown when Flair threw a pie in Storm’s face. As she was recounting that segment on the AEW Unrestricted podcast, Storm said she did not mind it because the original idea had to do with her shirt being ripped off. Storm said she agreed to the initial idea because releases were taking at the time.

Well, if you must know, I was actually quite happy with that segment that day [pie in the face from Charlotte Flair] because it was a lot better than the original idea. The original idea was that I was asked if I was comfortable with having my shirt ripped off or something. They wanted to do this whole angle where it was like they were gonna rip my shirt and I was gonna be like embarrassed in my underwear I guess. I don’t know and then, when you’re asked if you feel comfortable if you’re to do that and it’s like literally, people are being fired every single week, it’s like, ‘Well yeah. I guess I’m comfortable with that’ [Storm said sarcastically]. I guess I’m gonna be doing that but then a lot of people thought to not have that happen because that would have been terrible, a terrible idea. So to be honest, the pie was actually — it was quite a sweet treat in comparison to what it could’ve been. In hindsight, I don’t mind. You know what? I’m not even mad. People think I’m so mad about that. I think it’s hilarious.

Toni advanced to the semifinals of the Owen Hart Foundation tournament. She’ll be taking on Britt Baker, who advanced by defeating Maki Ito on the 5/18 AEW Dynamite.
