Toni Storm steps to the iconic Meiko Satomura
No competitor has been more dominant in this year’s Mae Young Classic than Meiko Satomura, the Scorpion Kicking legend of Japanese wrestling that just about every other tournament competitor identified as the woman to beat as soon as she was announced.
Though no one’s cracked the Satomura code yet, NXT UK’s Toni Storm looks to find a solution when she returns to the Semifinals for a second consecutive year. Storm’s journey to this point has been far from easy — her last two battles against Hiroyo Matsumoto and Mia Yim were absolute nail-biters — but The Lightning Down Under has weathered the storm.
Yet, Satomura is widely considered to be in a class of her own. Will Storm’s tenacity and strong-style offense be enough to take down the icon?
