The first ever AEW.ONE Wrestler of the Month for the month of June 2022, is…
Winner: Toni Storm
While she was unsuccessful at capturing the AEW World Title from Thunder Rosa at Forbidden Door, Toni Storm had several big wins in prominent positions. The team of Tony Storm & Ruby Soho defeated Britt Baker and Jamie Hayter on the huge episode of Dynamite from the Kia Forum in LA. Toni would also beat former AEW World Champ, Britt Baker on Dynamite ‘Road Rager’ and she’d give Marina Shafir an awesome match on Dynamite the following week. Toni ended June with a win in the main event of Rampage against Nyla Rose (technically this was televised on July 1st but the match took place June 29th). Toni also defeated Zeda Zhang on Dark.
Runner-up: Thunder Rosa
Thunder Rosa was able to retain her World Title against Toni Storm at Forbidden Door and earn a win over upstart Marina Shafir on Dynamite. Outside of her in-ring, Thunder Rosa has been prominent on screen, backing up Toni Storm against Nyla Rose & Marina Shafir.
Runner-up: Marina Shafir
Shafir had a heavy month of matches, including two on TBS/TNT (vs Thunder Rosa, Toni Storm). She’s gotten wins over Skye Blue and Amber Nova in singles action on Dark. And she’s become a fixture along side Nyla Rose lately. Shafir & Rose beat Heidi Howitzer & Max The Impaler on Dark Elevation.
Runner-up: Kris Statlander
Kris Statlander put in another star-making performance as a part of a trios match along side Ruby Soho & Anna Jay against Nyla Rose, Diamanté & Emi Sakura. This would’ve looked great on TBS/TNT, unfortunately it was on YouTube. Statlander also defeated Red Velvet in a very good match. She also squashed Ava Everett on Dark.
