When Lance Storm debuted in the WCW in the summer of 2000 it wasn't without controversy in front of him from his departure from ECW. After the financial issues began and one to many checks bounced Lance went looking elsewhere for employment and found it in the WCW. Fact of the matter is that at first Storm looked to be one of the first new talents WCW was actually going to "push" until they messed that up and made Storm nothing more than a mid-carder who was under the glass ceiling.
In ECW Lance had just been a two time Tag Team Champion (Once with Chris Candido & Once with Justin Credible). But within 6-8 months of being a apart of WCW Storm would become WCW Cruiserweight, Hardcore, & United States Champion. Storm would also become the first wrestler in WCW history to hold three titles all at the same time. Lance would rename each of the titles Canadian Heavyweight Championship, 100 kg and Under Championship, and Saskatchewan Hardcore International Title respectively.
After Storm either vacated or lost all of the titles he wouldn't go on to have much success in the WCW, but would go on to have a very solid run in the WWE following the closure of the WCW in March of 2001. Also featured in the interview that I will not speak on is Lance Storm's opinion of certain members of the WCW booking committee during the time he was with the company; one of the name is included in the title but the other might surprise some people.
I love looking back wrestling's past. I view my job as bring new life to the part of wrestling some people thought was gone.
