“I’m bi and it feels good to say." WWE NXT superstar Toni Storm has come out as bisexual. Ahead of this week’s WWE NXT episode, the Australian wrestler appearing on NXT’s Instagram story as part of Pride Month she took the opportunity to officially come out as bisexual.
“So when it was announced that I would be taking over the Instagram for Pride Month, I noticed a lot of people were like ‘Toni are you just ally? Are you in the community? What’s going on here?'" Storm said.
“Well I guess now is a good time to say both. I’m an ally and I cannot exactly say that I’m straight. I’m bi and it feels good to say. And it’s something I’ve been really comfortable with for a long time. I just never really expressed it. I don’t know, I just never really found the right time. And it’s Pride Month and I’m on your Instagram, so now’s a good time I guess," she added.
A member of the community and an ally. Thank you for sharing this with us, Toni Storm. We couldn’t be more proud. #Pride #PrideMonth #WeAreNXT(via @WWENXT’s Instagram Story) pic.twitter.com/IowBaiTM5R
