According to PW Insider, Toni Storm will be depicted as a babyface on SmackDown. She has has been working as a heel on the WWE NXT brand. However, creative plans currently call for her to get pops and cheers from the crowd instead.

“While she was last seen as a heel on WWE NXT, the current creative plans for Toni Storm are for her to be on the babyface side of the roster when she debuts this week on Friday Night Smackdown.”

This is an interesting switch for the debutant and it allows her to bring out some of the moves she had to nix after turning heel last year.

Storm first started working with WWE in June 2017. She won the Mae Young Classic at Evolution in October 2018. Storm was drafted to the NXT UK brand in the summer of the very same year. She went on to become the NXT UK Women’s by January 2019 beating Rhea Ripley at Takeover: Blackpool.
