During a recent episode of 83 Weeks, Eric Bischoff revealed that James Storm was notorious for not wanting to put other people over. Here’s what he had to say:
He gets in his own way, he really, really does. I’ve said this before, you go back and watch any James Storm match, anyone, go to the Impact app, watch any James Storm match. You can tell when he makes his entrance what the finish is gonna be. James Storm hates putting anybody over. Now he won’t come out and say it, he won’t do that, he’s artfully passive aggressive about it, so much so that it’s a running joke, or was a running joke, and I like James as a person. He’s probably gonna hear this and A, he’s not gonna agree with it, and B, he’s gonna be pissed off at me for saying it, but so what. Sorry James, it is what it is, gotta lay it out there like I see it, brother. It was a running a joke in TNA while we were there, you’ve heard the term boo boo face, he was the master of the boo boo face. If he was going over, man, he was on fire coming out to that ring, if he knew he was going over. If he knew he was doing a job, you could read it from two miles away.
