James Storm is a veteran indie wrestler and he recently spoke about WWE withdrawing its offer earlier this year. Storm started his professional wrestling career in the 1990s. He appeared in WCW as an enhancement talent. He actually got famous in TNA during the 2000s.
Even though he is a successful wrestler, he never had a run in WWE. He did work at NXT for a very short amount of time.
James Storm on Not Joining WWE
He spoke about the offer that he received from WWE on Lucha Libre Online.
He spoke about the Covid-19 pandemic affecting his entry in WWE. "I signed the contract and all that stuff and I was just waiting to take the physical," Storm explained. "They called me and told me it was going to the be put off because of all the stuff going on."
He stated that he totally understood why WWE did not sign him. He also stated that he knew WWE would most likely retract the offer as he knew that the promotion was looking to cut costs during the pandemic. "Once I seen that they were making all these cuts with all these different guys and stuff like that I just knew it was a matter of time before they retract the contract," Storm said.
"It sucks because I can sit here and say 'me me me' but in the whole scheme of things it was a lot of people who lost their jobs. All I can do is keep on keeping on and doing my thing and hopefully there's another opportunity to come in the future."
He didn’t rule out the possibility of joining the company once things return to normal. "I know a lot of guys up there who want to work with Beer Money, and the thing is no one owns that name so if we wanted to use it, we could use that name," Storm explained.
"If we're a tag team we'll make it the best we can again, but as singles we like beating the crap out of each other as well." He then spoke about Beer Monkey Inc. which was a very popular TNA group. "It's just one of those things," James Storm said when discussing a reunion with Roode.
"If they wanted Beer Money I'm sure both of us would do it, if they wanted us as singles you know, that's great too."
