- Below is video of Jon Quasto talking to Toni Storm after this week's NXT episode. Storm faced Io Shirai in a match that ended with an attack by Bianca Belair. NXT Women's Champion Rhea Ripley joined in on the brawl but the segment ended with Storm standing tall with Ripley's title in the ring. Storm will challenge Ripley for the title at WWE Worlds Collide on Saturday, and the winner will go on to defend against Belair at "Takeover: Portland" on February 16.
Storm was asked about her mindset going into Saturday's match.
"Bianca Belair can go and get in line with the rest of them because I picked up the NXT Women's Championship, and I held it up, and it looked good. All that is, is a little preview to what's gonna happen at Worlds Collide, and I can't wait to step in the ring with Rhea Ripley and make some magic," Storm said.
