James Storm Departs Impact Wrestling, Gives Goodbye Speech at TV Taping (VIDEO)

james storm leaves impact wrestling goodbye speech farewell

After fifteen years with the company, James Storm is saying goodbye to Impact Wrestling — and the wrestler thanked Dixie Carter during his farewell speech at tonight’s TV taping.

Sources with direct knowledge tell us Storm’s exit is legit. We’re told he recently made the decision to depart when his next contract option came around for multiple reasons.

During his goodbye speech at the TV taping in Ottawa on Thursday, The Cowboy thanked the fans for their support. He also thanked Dixie Carter, Jeff Jarrett and Bob Ryder — but not Anthem Sports.

Sources tell us Storm is free to negotiate elsewhere starting tomorrow, but right now there’s no current word on his plans for the future.

Watch the video of his farewell below.
