The Cowboy wants to keep things a secret, at least as far as what his next move will be.
Some assume that it may be another run in NXT. Storm doesn't dismiss it, talking to Cerrito Live:
People always say, 'main roster or bust type of guy,' but if you look at NXT, it's one of the hottest things going right now no matter what people say. And it's one of those things where anybody would be proud to be signed to NXT and have a good run there. I mean, it's plain and simple. They are doing as much as the people on the main roster is on the road and stuff like that right now. So, I mean, I'd definitely go and work with those guys and help them out as best I can.
He wants to keep where he's going a secret because with the likes of social media these days, secrets like Jericho attacking Kenny Omega aren't as prevalent anymore. Wherever he does appear, he wants to keep it mum until it happens.
There are a lot of companies and the funny thing is that I'm now free to talk and negotiate with other companies and actually go work for other companies. But right now, I think I kind of want to keep it under wraps, make it a surprise where old James Storm pops up.
Storm explained, "I just want to be a surprise because today, especially in our social media world, there [are] not that many surprises anymore. And because everybody wants to be cool and I always say, 'people are wrestling for the likes and the retweets' or GIFS, whatever they call those things these days. But to me, I always try to keep stuff kayfabe and keep stuff secret until it happens or whatever, so it's even cooler when it's a surprise.
Storm wrestled in a couple of matches that were taped for NXT television back in 2015, but didn't sign with WWE. He instead opted to return to Impact Wrestling before leaving there once again a few months ago.
