More Timeless Toni Storm on commentary please, Mr. Khan

The obligatory women’s match on the Dec. 13 Winter is Coming edition of AEW Dynamite was mostly there to move us closer to Riho challenging for the Women’s World title at Worlds End. What it mostly ended up being was another outlet for the person holding that belt — Timeless Toni Storm — to be wildly entertaining.

You know the bit by now. Screen goes black & white whenever she’s on it, names are mispronounced, and old-timey references are made as Storm obliviously puts herself over. There’s a shelf-life on gimmicks like this one (Mizdow and Broken Matt were great for a while, too), but I’m still laughing every time Toni calls AEW’s play-by-play man “Mr. Shavaaaahn”.

The Timeless One’s time on commentary was full of bon mots. My personal favorite was when she argued against Riho, the first ever AEW Women’s champion, reclaiming the title by saying, “We also used to have asbestos in our snow. Some things just shouldn’t be repeated.” But there were plenty of moments to choose from...

And hey, based on how she was used here the other benefit of more Timeless Toni Storm commentary would be more women’s matches on Dynamite. Nothing else has succeeded in making that happen... maybe lobbying for more time at the desk for our delusional queen will work?
