James Storm Speaks On Jeff Jarrett/TNA Situation, World Title, Chris Harris

Posted by Matt Boone December 28, 2013 6 Comments

The following are highlights from a recent Newsday interview with TNA wrestler James Storm:

On his short run with the World Heavyweight Title: “I can always say I was the world champion, even if it was for a week. At the end of the day, I don’t want to say I don’t care about it, but my bills are still being paid without the belt . . . when I go to the bank, they don’t ask me if I’m a champion. I still have a lot of years left in me, and the opportunity will come. It’s one of those things that you have to wait your turn.”

On Jeff Jarrett: “To me, Jeff knows wrestling. They need somebody like that either in the production side or the creative side . . . because, let’s face it, he built this company. It was his hard work and his money that he put into it in the very beginning. I think TNA needs Jeff Jarrett, whether it be behind the scenes or in front of the camera or whatever, but they definitely need him—at least for his advice on the wrestling aspect of it.”

On Chris Harris not making it in WWE: “I believe Chris brought it onto himself. I talked to him while he was there. Anytime you go up there, they’re going to test you, to see if you have an attitude or whatever. And I just heard he failed miserably. He had an attitude while he was up there and you can’t do that. You just go up there and you do what they ask of you the best you can, and sooner or later, they’ll find a spot for you and do something with you. Just because he had a good run here, he expected to go up there and have a run, and that’s not so.”

      I have to agree about Jeff Jarrett. TNA needs him. Classic TNA is what we need today and Jeff should have been given the opportunity to take TNA back to what it was, not the clusterf**k Bischoff and Hogan have made it.

        Yea because TNA was perfectly fine under Jeff & Dixie [/sarcasm]

        What is this obsession with Hogan and Bischoff? TNA had been in the doldrums long before those two arrived. Sure, they didn’t help matters (aside from getting a bunch of international TV deals, from what I’ve heard), but it’s disingenuous to suggest that they were the key catalysts of the ‘fall’ of TNA. I anyone is to blame – then it’s the person who has always been IN CHARGE of TNA – Dixie Carter.

          Thank you. Hogan was the perfect scapegoat for the TNA fanatics. But at the end of the day, they have sucked hard for a long time.
