Many fans agree that Lance Storm is a true veteran in the world of professional wrestling. For many, he is considered a very underrated professional wrestler. It seems he is returning to an old job now.

Impact Wrestling recently announced the return of the Gut Check tryout, which will take place at the Arnold Classic on March 6th. During the press conference, it was announced that Lance Storm would be in charge of the tryout along with John E. Bravo.

While speaking on the latest Figure 4 Daily episode, Lance Storm revealed that he is returning to Impact Wrestling as a producer and will be part of the booking time once again.

”Producer, coach, whatever you want to call it. I’m quite sure Scott is willing to hear an idea or two if I happen to suggest one, but that is not part of my current job description.”


Storm worked as a producer for Impact in early 2019 before making his way to WWE back in November 2019. He was furloughed in April 2020 due to being stuck in Canada because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

This is a chance to make the decision I made two years ago. I had done a couple of tapings with IMPACT as a producer, back when I still had my school, and when I decided to close my school and was looking at options, I talked with IMPACT and I talked with WWE. WWE made a very eager, good offer. I really liked it in IMPACT, but both my wife and me liked the idea of the security in WWE, which is ironic considering it ended up being a six-month gig. Maybe that’s karma or destiny telling me I should have made the other decision in the first place. I enjoyed the two tapings that I did. I liked the atmosphere and people and I’ve always gotten along with Scott (D’Amore). I’m looking forward to it, it won’t be too long. I will be going to the New Orleans tapings and I will be overseeing Gut Check

We will have to wait and see how Lance Storm will fare in his role as a producer again as Impact Wrestling will certainly benefit from Storm’s experience in the pro wrestling world.
