#3 Paul Heyman wanted to bring James Storm to WWE RAW
TNA/IMPACT Wrestling legend James Storm was recently a guest on Busted Open Radio. It was recently revealed that WWE was planning to bring Storm in before COVID-19 put an end to the plan, and Storm gave more details about it:
They said, ‘well, since we are getting into WrestleMania season, let’s just hold off everything until right after Mania.’ I talked to Billy Corgan and told him whatever you guys need me to do to go out the right way that I would do it. They were going to plan a show around WrestleMania weekend and I was going to drop it (the National Title) down there and do good business on the way out the door. H/T: WrestlingNewsCo
James Storm also revealed that it was Paul Heyman who wanted to bring him into WWE RAW. Storm said that Heyman saw him as someone who could come in and help with the younger WWE Superstars:
It was Heyman who wanted to bring me into RAW and he said I need guys like you who know how to work. I tell everybody all the time that WWE, AEW and New Japan have guys that can do every move in the book. There is no move you can come up with that those guys can’t do. But, there are a lot of guys who don’t make it believable anymore. They (WWE) wanted me to come in to help their younger guys.
