FORMER TNA CHAMPION DEPARTS IMPACT WRESTLING By Mike Johnson on 2017-11-09 22:37:00 Former TNA champion James Storm worked his last scheduled appearance for Impact Wrestling at their TV Taping tonight in Ottawa, Ontario. He gave a farewell speech, as he had been with the company since 2002 when the promotion was founded by Jeff and Jerry Jarrett.
Storm later posted the following message on Twitter:
Storm's Impact deal technically expires this January, but with the company not running any dates before his deal expires, this was his swan song. As noted previously, the company, under new owner Anthem Media, has been cost cutting and the expectation is that Storm would not be offered a deal that would be close to what he had been making under his current contract.
