Despite a very brief run in NXT back in 2015, James Storm didn't last in the company and quickly went back to Impact Wrestling.
"I went down to NXT and talked to Triple H and then I went back again and had another match with them and Impact had put an offer out on me and so did NXT. But you know I even actually sat down with Hunter and had the contract with me and was like you know 'this is what Impact is offering and everything.'
And tell you the truth it wasn't even about the money because I told him the situation that a lot of people don't know about is that me and my wife was trying to have another kid, and it was just one of those deals where if you're with WWE you might as well forget it, you're on the road so much."
Storm said that he took advice from Triple H to get into the best shape possible and now it is his ultimate goal to make it back to the company.
