TNA Original & Former World Champion Finished with Impact Wrestling
The list of Impact Wrestling departures continues tonight, as the company wrapped up its TV tapings in Ottawa, Canada.
During the tapings, TNA original and former World Champion James Storm made his final scheduled appearance for Impact Wrestling. Storm’s contract with Impact does not officially expire until January 2018, but with tonight being the final TV tapings until next year, Storm gave his farewell speech, reports PWInsider.com.
As for Storm’s future, the feeling is that with Anthem’s current cost-cutting, if the company does make Storm a new offer when his current deal expires, it would not be anywhere near what he was making before. As we noted last week, there is a fear that more top talents might be leaving Impact Wrestling if they are unwilling to take pay cuts if offered new, lower deals when their current contracts expire. Storm joins names such as Rockstar Spud, Eddie Kingston, Jeff Jarrett, Bram, Low Ki, Taryn Terrell, Reno Scum and more who have recently left Impact Wrestling.
