• James Storm Was Set To Return To WWE After WrestleMania 36, Update On Current Status
While speaking to Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet, former TNA World Heavyweight Champion James Storm revealed that he was very close to signing with WWE earlier this year.
Below is what he said:
“I get home and I see I got an email from Canyon Ceman saying, ‘Hey, we’re interested. Paul Heyman wants me to reach out and bring you to RAW. I was like, ‘Wait…I think Bobby [Roode] is going to RAW. Hmmm. This could be interesting.’ Ya know?
I told [NWA] I would work the weekend of WrestleMania shows with Eli [Drake] to drop the NWA belts to whoever they wanted to drop it to. Just go out on good terms. Good business, ya know? Then that show got cancelled for the NWA, and then it kept snowballing.”
He added that he prepared for WWE’s mandatory pre-signing physical by paying out of his own pocket each month — just to make sure he’d pass. He also bought new gear.
“We agreed on all the terms. It was signed.”
He’s hopeful that he’ll get another opportunity to work for WWE.
“You just take it and keep rolling. It’s not their fault. It’s just how everything is right now.”
Storm commented the following about it on Twitter:
“Well SORRY About my damn luck. 😂 Definitely would be fun and interesting. Keep on Keeping on. #ShititandGetit 🍺 #DamnCovid”
