Lance Storm Speaks: WRP, Jericho, Students in WWE & More

Nick Paglino

Arda Ocal (@Arda_Ocal) and Jimmy Korderas (@JimmyKorderas) of AFTERMATH RADIO on iTunes (FORMERLY RIGHT AFTER WRESTLING radio) chat with former WWE Superstar Lance Storm (@storm_wrestling, www.stormwrestling.com). Highlights:

- Thoughts on his e-book "Storm Warning": how it came about and will there be future projects including a second collection of commentaries and an autobiography?

- Being a part of the Wrestling Revolution Project: why did he pick this project to be a part of?

- Storm Wrestling Academy: why did he choose to offer 3 month classes as opposed to a year long program like many other schools?

You never have the same group of people at the same level of experience. That's how I learned from the Harts in 1990, and that's how I teach."

- Thoughts on his 5 WWE-signed developmental students; who he helped trained when he was head of WWE training in OVW (including Dolph Ziggler who he trained "from scratch")

- Visiting old friends when RAW/Smackdown was in Edmonton/Calgary

- Does Lance want his last match to be against Chris Jericho, his first opponent?

- Will Storm Wrestling Academy ever become a WWE developmental territory? Why isn't it one now?
"I've had all kinds of different levels of talks for quite a while. We've just never managed to figure out how to make it work. There's always been on going conversation. I think they hope I cave in and move to Florida. I think it makes sense to have a developmental territory in Canada. Before Deep South I talked to Vince about it. I'd like to be involved with that level again with WWE."

- Recollections on various commentaries included in "Storm Warning", including his disappointment at not being on the card at WrestleMania 20 while Brock Lesnar vs Goldberg was
