A lot of changes are being made by WWE owing to AEW’s rising popularity. Toni Storm appeared for Stardom this past weekend. After that, she was scheduled to square off against Bea Priestley on 5/16 at Korakuen Hall. Priestley only recently won the World of Stardom Title.
However, Stardom then took to Twitter and announced that the match between Toni Storm and Bea Priestly will no longer be taking place.
For the upcoming Korakuen Hall show on May 16, the previously announced match between Toni Storm and Bea Priestley will not take place due to circumstances beyond our control. Thank you for undestanding.
According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, WWE were the ones who decided to have the match cancelled as they did not their top U.K. Women’s Champion potentially losing against a competitor from AEW. Bea was expected to retain her title and WWE was concerned about the backlash.
Priestley will now defend her title against Hazuki and Storm will face off against Kagetsu.
