Despite resurfacing yet again on this week's episode of Impact Wrestling, James Storm is not under a full-time contract with the Anthem-helmed promotion.
Per a report from Fightful Select, 'The Cowboy' is yet to be offered an official contract from Scott D'Amore and Don Callis, but will be appearing on three upcoming episodes of Impact's weekly show. The initial reasoning for bringing Storm in was to give Sabin a partner to face Marq Quen and Isiah Kassidy while Alex Shelley is absent. Their match on Tuesday's broadcast saw Private Party earn the right to challenge the Impact World Tag Team Champions, The Good Brothers.
A former World, World Tag Team, and King of the Mountain Champion under the Impact banner, Storm has done it all in the company. While a permanent move to WWE was in the works post-WrestleMania 36 before the global b*stard kicked in, a full-time return to Impact could also do wonders for James at this stage of his career, particularly when you consider their working relationship with All Elite Wrestling.
It would seem foolish of Impact to not at least try to sign James down to a full-time deal. He can still go and has bags of charisma to go alongside it. The Private Party match was a certified banger. Time will tell where 'The Bearded Outlaw' ends up.
