Current NXT UK Superstar and winner of the second Mae Young Classic, Toni Storm, revealed who among the WWE women superstars is currently her biggest inspiration.

“Becky Lynch is currently my biggest inspiration,” said Storm during an interview with Express.co.uk.

“She is taking the women’s division to a completely different level. Her strengths and her fire are definitely inspiring me right now. I hope to eventually step into the ring with her because I feel the biggest competition at the moment is Becky Lynch,” said Storm.
