IMPACT got a former World Champion back, but so far it's just for these set of tapings.
"Cowboy" James Storm popped up again on IMPACT Wrestling television, kicking off his 2021. However, as Fightful Select has learned, he's in the same boat as Matt Cardona, who is working the tapings without a contract.
James Storm made a surprise appearance on IMPACT Wrestling this week to team with Chris Sabin, but much like some other names that have popped up lately, we've confirmed that he doesn't have a contract with IMPACT Wrestling. Storm was also at the October set of tapings, but not at the November tapings that led up to Hard to Kill. He worked two matches at those October tapings, but we've learned that he's not done on IMPACT TV as of yet, as he participated in filming three matches for the show. Storm was brought in to work with AEW's Private Party, who appeared on the show.
Storm will appear on the next couple of months of television, but his status beyond that isn't known.
