AEW Women’s World Champion “Timeless” Toni Storm has been calling pro wrestling legend Wendi Richter out since their Worlds End PPV event last December and Richter has responded to Storm’s challenge and threats when she took part in a recent signing with Highspots Virtual Gimmick Table.

According to Fightful Select, Richter is no longer expected to appear in AEW despite saying she would do so for the right amount of money and that is because she is under a WWE Legends contract. A number of other stars under a WWE Legends contract had to get permission to work for AEW and Richter could do the same if an agreement is reached, but that seems unlikely.

Updates will be provided if there are any developments in the situation.
