All her struggle over the past month have been because of Zoey Stark. The hard-working WWE newcomer upset Storm on the TakeOver: Stand & Deliver night one pre-show, then paid her back for a beatdown by running interference so Zayda Ramier could do the same.

Toni was itching for pay back of her own in the rematch with Stark on the May 18 NXT. But when her usual Storm’s End finisher didn’t get three, it wasn’t clear if it would happen. Then she busted out this:
