WWE NXT Star Reflects On Battling Depression

WWE NXT UK star Toni Storm made her first Royal Rumble appearance this year, entering at number 20. She had a decent showing, lasting 18:40 before being eliminated by Shayna Baszler.

She recently opened up about her battle with depression in an interview with BT Sport. Here is the full quote, courtesy of Fightful:

“This time last year, I was so depressed and in such a bad place. I didn’t even know if I wanted to keep doing this because I was in such a bad way, but these things start coming up. If I can achieve this, I can have everything. I must be able to because I’ve overcome all that and I’m here in the Royal Rumble. I guess I can do anything, I was not supposed to do this.

When I was a little girl, I’d print out match graphics and I’d put a photo of myself in them. I’d always write it down. I’d write down matches that I’d want to be in. Maybe it manifested. I just visualized it so long and it starts to happen. It’s still just crazy.”

Storm had private photos leak last year, causing her to take time away from social media.
