Former WWE, WCW, ECW wrestler Lance Storm just celebrated 30 years in the wrestling business and recently sat down with the WrestlingInc Podcast.
Lance Storm was recently part of the WWE budget cuts back in April and he provided a update on his status with the company
Well, I was, again, they want to say furloughed, but with my visa and my contract, because I had to have different paperwork to enable me to get the work visa, they had to terminate my contract to not pay me. So I was straight up released,” Storm revealed. “You can’t do it the same way because again, really the only difference between furloughed and fired is they don’t actually file the paperwork to terminate you and then they hope to bring you back, and I was told that basically, your furloughed or whatever.
Storm continued ,
We hope to bring you back at some point, but I had a different contract. To enable a visa, they have to terminate the contract to not continue to pay me, so they did, which is why I was able to do the cameo on AEW Dynamite for the Jericho 30-year anniversary celebration. I got to send in a video for that. So I’m really in a position where I’ve got a lot of things I could be doing and want to be doing, but to do them, I have to cross to the US, and as of right now, there is still a closed border.
There is some legal loopholing you can do if you’re willing to bend the rules and ignore quarantines, but that’s not something I’m willing to do. So until the border situation improves, I sit home and do a weekly podcast on the Wrestling Observer and watch ‘Corner Gas’ animated Monday nights on CTV comedy
