Lance Storm made his pro wrestling debut in 1990. Storm quickly became one of the best wrestlers in the world and emerged as a mainstay in Paul Heyman’s Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW).
Storm left ECW to join Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling (WCW) in 2000. When Vince McMahon purchased his rival company in 2001, Storm was one of the many wrestlers that got work in the Stamford-based promotion.
His WWE televised debut came during the May 28th episode of RAW when Storm entered the ring and delivered a superkick to Perry Saturn. His debut marked the beginning of the infamous invasion storyline.
Storm underwent a gimmick change in 2003 after tagging with Val Venis. In storyline, Storm’s manhood made him popular with the ladies. The 52-year-old recently took to Twitter to talk about the weird gimmick.
The Impact producer said McMahon loved the idea of the new gimmick. Though Storm doesn’t know who came up with the gimmick, he suspect former WWE head writer Brian Gewirtz intended to pull a rib on McMahon.
