Former NXT UK Women’s champion Toni Storm used her time taking over NXT’s Instagram stories for Pride Month to come out as bisexual.
Storm said that when she was announced as taking over for Pride Month, she was being asked if she’s an ally or in the community.
“And, well, now it’s a good time to say I’m both. I’m an ally and I can’t exactly say that I’m straight,” Storm said. “I’m bi and it feels good to say. It’s something I’ve been really comfortable with for a long time, I just never really expressed it…I don’t know, I just never really found the right time.”
The NXT Twitter account congratulated the 25-year-old from New Zealand and thanked her for sharing the news. “We couldn’t be more proud,” it said.
A member of the community and an ally. Thank you for sharing this with us, Toni Storm. We couldn’t be more proud. 💖💜💙 #Pride #PrideMonth #WeAreNXT
