James Storm's Promo
One Redneck Step Up

There's something real about James Storm.

His promo on Impact this past Thursday was very good and it positioned him well as he heads into tonight's pay per view against Kurt Angle. Having Angle to work with certainly doesn't hurt, but credit has to be given to Storm right now for delivering so well.

When Storm gets personal and brings up his gut-wrenching past, it allows fans to connect. It works. Add to the fact that Storm is a "TNA homegrown" talent and has been there since the beginning, it's easy to understand why he's so over.

I was worried that when Beer Money split, it wouldn't be long for Storm to wind up lost in the shuffle again. I believe I may have been wrong. And I'm perfectly okay with that.
