Does Lance Storm even have a single great match to his name? Maybe one of his out-of-retirement Ring of Honor matches? Or some WAR stuff with Jericho? He never really did anything in ECW. An Anarchy Rulez Ladder Match? In WCW, although he was a triple-champion, he mostly just worked garbage, forgettable TV matches. In WWE, he was a joke. His Un-Americans run was kind of fun but not because of him. He has terrible strikes, no facial expressions whatsoever, has maybe only three moves that look halfway decent (dropkick, super kick, half-crab). The dude is the definition of mediocre. How does that make him a great in-ring worker? Because he's from Canada? Because he says that he is?
Like, is the pinnacle of his career the Summerslam 2001 match against Edge?
- Lance Storm Vs. Jerry Lynn, ECW November to Remember 1998
- Lance Storm Vs. Edge, WWF Summerslam 2001
- Lance Storm Vs. Bryan Danielson, ROH Better Than Our Best 2006
That's not exactly a stellar résumé. None of those are great (imo) or unforgettable. Hell, do most people even remember those matches at all? He's completely forgettable.
Storm has always been overrated on-line. If people like him, that's cool. I know he goes out of his way to try to appeal to smart fans all the time. He's playing to that crowd on purpose. The matches just aren't there though. When you can't even fill up a hand with great matches you're not a great worker.
