In a recent interview with Lucha Libre Online, James Storm talked about his negotiations to join WWE earlier this year before the company retracted its offer to him due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Here is what he had to say:
“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.”
“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.”
