“Cowboy” James Storm is one of the few wrestlers who made their name in TNA and has continued to shine with the organization. He has competed there since the company had its first broadcast. Storm initially made his name in the tag division, first with Chris ‘Wildcat’ Harris as the group America’s Most Wanted. The duo were consistently the highlights of each night. After AMW disbanded, Storm briefly worked in the singles division before joining with Bobby Roode to form Beer Money, one of, if not THE best tag teams in the history of TNA. Their best of five series against the Motor City Machine Guns was just about the best feud of 2010 in wrestling, at least in my opinion.

Both members found themselves in the World Title hunt, with Storm winning the title. He lost it just eight days later to Roode after some underhandedness on Roode’s part. The two went on to have a notable feud through 2012.

Storm has one of those personas that just instantly clicks with the crowd. He’s a hard drinkin’, hard fightin’ sum’bitch that can go in the ring with the best of them.
