Lance Storm wrote a piece for Fighting Spirit Magazine called “Storm Front” back in May of this year. He has since posted it on his website for all to enjoy. In it, he talks about the wild ride that was the Invasion, and everything that went with.
Some snippets from the piece:
“The first person I see when I walk through the door is Jim Ross, who is standing maybe 30 feet away talking to Brian Christopher. My initial thought was great, there’s Jim Ross, I can introduce myself to him and he will show me around and everything will be fine. As I approach them I’m waiting for JR to see me, hoping he will pause his conversation and I’ll be able to say hello. As I get closer neither guy acknowledges my presence and their conversation seems quite serious. So now I’m in no man’s land, a new guy’s worst nightmare.”
“I had a ton of friends already in WWE, like Chris Jericho, JBL (worked with him in CWA in 1995), Justin Credible, The Dudleys, Edge, Christian, to help smooth the waters, and with all of us WCW guys coming in together, after that initial invasion, I managed to skate in under that radar, while guys like Palumbo and O’Hare got heat for being too green…”
“At this point I realize I just commit a bigger sin than not introducing myself; I just told the biggest star in our industry ‘Yeah, but’. Yeah but is a huge mistake and something you should never do…”
Definitely worth the read. Check it out here.
