Their time as a tag team to find the early days of TNA Wrestling and when it was over, their matches with one another seemed to be the beginning of a new era for the promotion with the two of them at the forefront as singles competitors.

Ultimately, Chris Harris chose to leave TNA and try his luck in WWE where he was saddled with the character of Braden Walker and put on the WWE ECW brand. Appearing for only a handful of weeks alongside Matt Hardy and in a match against Armando Alejandro Estrada, Braden Walker did not last very long but did become a meme.

The 3 discs best of Braden Walker collection was a common running gag among wrestling fans and now, James Storm is telling the story of how he got Chris Harris to sign a real-life copy of the parody DVD set for him.

Storm, speaking to Sean Ross Sapp at Wrestlecade 2021, admits that he wanted to go to WWE as part of a tag team with Chris Harris but Harris chose not to wait for another year for James Storm's TNA Wrestling contract to expire and as a result, there was some bad blood between the former teammates.

"It was kinda weird because when he went to WWE, we really just went our separate ways. There was a lot of bad blood there at the time because we got word that they wanted us to come together as a tag team and I had one more year left on my contract and his [contract] was up. I told him, ‘Just sign one more year and we’ll go together.’ We were more valuable that way. Bob Ryder was trying to tell him, ‘Don’t go without Storm. I’m telling you, don’t do it.’ But he wouldn’t listen. He wanted to go. I can’t blame him. They were trying to throw some money at him and he got up there and they just buried him."

"I’m not gonna try to toot my own horn, but I think it would have went different. There wouldn’t be a three-disc Braden Walker collection, I wouldn’t think if I went up there. I got him to sign mine. I made one up. I made a cover-up and everything. He stood on the stage with his hands on his hips. He talked to Matt Hardy."

Storm and Harris would eventually reunite on television as Chris Harris appeared on IMPACT Wrestling TV ahead of James Storm’s 1000 match with the promotion.
