So when "Cowboy" James Storm showed up at Full Sail University last night, it came as somewhat of a surprise. Even though he was reported as backstage at Takeover: Respect, the reports were giving the impression that he'd be more of a coach than an active wrestler. But he came out for a match last night, keeping his regular name and everything. OF course, what keeps it from being a total spoiler is that the NXT Twitter itself announced it.
With Joe and Storm in the fold this year and TNA possibly circling the drain, the stigma of TNA wrestlers not going to WWE should probably be dissolved. But it's also telling that they went to NXT and not WWE, especially since both are extreme veterans of the wrestling scene. If anything, it fuels the notion that NXT is less and less developmental and more the world's most random indie promotion. But either way, it's cool for the fans at least.
