As noted, one of Impact Wrestling’s goals for next year is to rebuild its relationship with New Japan Pro Wrestling. As seen in recent months, Impact has been doing more business with Japan, as they recently held Pro Wrestling NOAH talent exchanges.
With regards to James Storm, we reported following the Impact tapings in Ottawa that he finished up with Impact at the tapings, and his contract will expire after the new year. Impact taped James Storm vs. Dan Lambert for the first episode of Impact Wrestling in 2018, with the idea that the loser of the match will leave Impact. This should be Impact’s way of writing James Storm off TV. As noted, Storm is the latest in a wave of Impact talents who have left the company due to officials cutting out high money, guaranteed talent deals.
