Report: James Storm Signs Two-Year Deal With TNA

WWE
Former TNA World Heavyweight Champion James Storm returned to TNA on Tuesday’s episode of Impact Wrestling on Pop TV. We reported earlier in the week that he had flown into Bethlehem, PA on Sunday night and was going to appear on the show.

According to Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet.com, the reason Storm returned to TNA was because of money. WWE was only willing to offer him a deal that would bring Storm in for less than $100K a year. 

TNA wanted him back, so they offered him 2 1/2 times more than what WWE was offering him. He also would get a portion of his merchandise sales. Storm agreed to a two-year deal with TNA. 

The door was left open by WWE officials for Storm to return in the future.

    He must of forgotten, that there’s only a 50/50 that his check from TNA will clear

    • Anthony Michael Hall

      He must have remembered that its not 1983 anymore and people get paid electronically.

    Why they sign him for 2 years instead of 5 years?

    Because TNA knows it won’t be around in 5 years. Lol.

    TNA’s sound technician made a mistake. When Roode won his match, he played Beer Money music for a second, screwing the surprise of the return of James Storm.

      Didn’t even notice it… though it was like 3am when I was watching it
