Update On James Storm To WWE And How Billy Gunn Helped Make It Possible
December 12, 2020 | News | No Comments
We noted last Wednesday prior to the start of the NXT Takeover: Respect event that James Storm was spotted with coach Billy Gunn heading into Full Sail University. Storm would go on to make his NXT debut the next night.
As it turns out, Gunn was the one who essentially got Storm the gig with WWE after putting in a good word for him to top WWE executives. Gunn and Storm are reportedly good friends outside the business, and it was Gunn who arranged for Storm and WWE to begin talks.
Regarding the rumors that TNA threw more money at Storm once they learned of his deal with WWE, that may not be the case. Apparently TNA found out about WWE’s interest and then tried to book him on their upcoming tour of India, however they didn’t offer him more money than their original offer to try and get him to stay.
