Toni Storm Talks MYC Classic Victory, Comparisons To Chris Jericho In New Interview


The 2018 Mae Young Classic winner Toni Storm spoke with the Mirror recently about her triumph in the second inaugural all women’s tournament, and the conversation she had immediately after with the power couple of the WWE: COO Stephanie McMahon and Executive Vice President of Talent, Triple-H.

They just congratulated me and said they really enjoyed it. To be honest though, I was in a whole different world, I couldn’t believe what was going on around me and I couldn’t believe who was there. They were so nice…it was like no other experience ever.

Storm would also discuss Mark Henry’s comments comparing the New Zealand native to Chris Jericho. Storm more than appreciated the compliment, referring to Y2J as one of her biggest idols.

It’s just crazy isn’t it? I’m just little me, that pops along each day and tries my best, then I have such massive names saying such nice things about me. It’s so lovely for them to take the time out to watch me and praise my work. I can believe I have such big names praising me. He’s the World’s Loveliest Man. I thought that was one of the biggest compliments I’ve ever received because Chris Jericho is incredible, one of the biggest names of all time, and he’s been a huge inspiration for me, since I was a kid. To be compared to my idols is kind of surreal. I’m happy with that compliment, it’s the ‘World’s Strongest Compliment’ if you will!
