Lance Storm has found a new home.
On February 4, IMPACT announced the return of the Gut Check tryout, which will take place at the Arnold Classic on March 6.
In the press release, it was noted that Lance Storm would be running the tryout alongside John E. Bravo.
Speaking on Figure 4 Daily, Storm confirmed he is back with IMPACT.
"Producer, coach, whatever you want to call it," Storm said when asked what his role is with the company.
Asked if he's part of the booking team, Storm said he wasn't, but noted, "I'm quite sure Scott is willing to hear an idea or two if I happen to suggest one, but that is not part of my current job description."
Storm worked backstage as a producer in IMPACT in early 2019 before signing with WWE in November 2019. He was furloughed by WWE in April 2020.
"This is a chance to make the decision I made two years ago. I had done a couple of tapings with IMPACT as a producer, back when I still had my school, and when I decided to close my school and was looking at options, I talked with IMPACT and I talked with WWE. WWE made a very eager, good offer. I really liked it in IMPACT, but both my wife and me liked the idea of the security in WWE, which is ironic considering it ended up being a six-month gig. Maybe that's karma or destiny telling me I should have made the other decision in the first place. I enjoyed the two tapings that I did. I liked the atmosphere and people and I've always gotten along with Scott (D'Amore). I'm looking forward to it, it won't be too long. I will be going to the New Orleans tapings and I will be overseeing Gut Check," he said.
