James Storm is taking some time off to deal with some lingering injuries and is using his loss at Lockdown as the storyline explanation. Storm's promo that aired on this week's Impact Wrestling was done to write him out of current storylines.
After the promo aired, Storm Tweeted the following:
Emotional time in my life after Lockdown.Need time to think about what I need to do and will not be making live events. I apologize.
