• AEW Wrestler Says She Lost Her Mind Before Quitting WWE Last Year
After having a very short run on the WWE main roster (which concluded after losing to Charlotte Flair in a SmackDown Women’s Championship match), Toni Storm asked for her release in December 2021.
She’s now in AEW and will compete in the Owen Hart Foundation Women’s Tournament.
During an appearance on Busted Open Radio, Toni said the following about her decision to leave WWE:
“I guess I just freaked out and went home.
Something just happened and I left. I felt like I was having an out of body experience, to be honest. Have you ever just lost your mind? That’s kind of what happened.
The stress of not seeing family in years and then just so many overwhelming things all at once. I’ve been happier ever since.”
Daniel Bryan noted last year that he felt something similar in the main event of WrestleMania 37 – Night 2:
“It was really bizarre. It’s taken me time to fully process what the experience was like because it wasn’t like a normal thing. I felt very out of body in it.
When I’m wrestling, I feel everything and feel like I’m enjoying it. This was weird, I was out there and it felt like I was detached.
It was so strange that before the match started, I got this strange feeling like, ‘Oh no, is this what it’s like before you die? Am I going to die? Huh, well, okay.’
I don’t know why or how it happened, but it was unlike anything I’ve felt while wrestling.”
