Netflix debuted a documentary series called ‘Wrestlers’ that focuses on Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW) and also featured bigger names like WWF Veteran Al Snow (who also co-runs OVW) and even WCW/TNA Veteran ‘Cowboy’ James Storm.

In one episode, Al Snow and Matt Jones talk about booking James Storm and debate if he is worth his requested fee of $600, because there are concerns that he may not be able to even draw 60 fans into the arena.

A fan wrote the following on Twitter about this scene:

“Not only did this OVW documentary expose James Storm’s booking fee, but also completely sh*t on him as an even minimal drawing card. Harsh.”

‘Cowboy’ James Storm then replied in a Tweet of his own:

“Well as wrestlers and fans know not many shows run on a Thursday. Al called and asked me if I would help out and help some of the talent. Travel and hotel paid + filming Netflix and only 2 1/2 hrs from my house, not bad.

Plus I don’t really need the money, but if you can make a little, get in some reps, help people and get an ACTORS credit that I got. Win win. I got to help and work with some good friends. Now the other guy doesn’t know a wrist lock from a wrist watch.”

After a few years on the independent scene, James Storm joined Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling in 2000 as a preliminary wrestler and most notably wrestled on the c-shows WCW Saturday Night and WCW Worldwide.

He is best remembered for his time in Total Nonstop Wrestling! (TNA, later IMPACT Wrestling) from June 2002 until September 2015 and again from January 2016 till January 2018, as well as 2020 to 2022.

Not that many people remember that James Storm actually joined WWE NXT briefly in the fall of 2015, but ended up not signing his WWE contract and left.
