While speaking to Wrestling Inc, James Storm responded to the rumors that he didn’t sign with WWE because the company reportedly gave him a low-ball offer. According to Storm, that wasn’t the case.
“A lot of people say it was money, but it wasn’t. It was a family thing,” Storm said. “Hunter told me they’d run 100-125 shows over the next two years. My wife wanted to have another kid, but she had to do shots, and I had to be at home a lot more. It was a decision: do I go and live this crazy of wrestling in the WWE or do I stay home and help my wife have another child that she wants? I decided that my family was what is really important to me.”
