WWE officials wanted Storm to sign a deal similar to Samoa Joe’s initial contract, but Storm did not sign the contract. WWE is said to be interesting in Storm working the next set of NXT TV tapings later this month. TNA got wind of his appearance and offered him a new contract last Thursday.
In an update, NXT trainer Billy Gunn was the one who got Storm into talks with WWE officials, according to PWinsider.com. The two have been friends for years now.
As of this writing, Storm is weighing his options and has yet to accept a deal by either promotion.
