James Storm: Biggest geek on the roster
 
How is anyone suppose to have confidence in this guy? They've completely told us that this guy is a failure, a moron, and someone you simply can't trust to get it done.

-He should of won the World title at Lockdown. At that time, the 5-6 month feud hype, and the promos were not only good, but indicators that Storm (and fans since he was hot at the time) would finally get the payoff and win the World title in his home city after the long struggle. He loses, then loses his smile and disappears.

-He comes back, gets a 20 point headstart on the BFG series and still doesn't win!

-He finally beats Roode in the hardcore match at BFG. Great moment that should of put an end to the feud and prove that Storm can deliver in big moments. What happens? They restart the feud for NO REASON, Storm wins the number 1 contender spot only to lose it to Roode because he took Roode's bait like a moron. On top of that, the way he lost in the match made him look like a bigger moron. This loss completely negated Storm's win at BFG.

Storm will never get to the level he could of been at earlier this year. He'll be in a triple threat with Roode and Hardy where he'll lose again. Then maybe he'll get some more World title matches where he'll lose again. Why buy into a guy that continuously fails? I think the crowd somewhat gave up on him to. Compare his reactions from around Lockdown time to now. He was pushed as the number 1 face even though he was arguably number 2. Right now you can argue that he's being pushed as the number 2 face but he's more like number 3 or 4 on the roster right now.

I'm a big fan of his, he's one of my favourites in TNA but I tend to agree with most of your points, they have made him look like a total tool. They really did drop the ball on him, I agree that he should have won the world title at Lockdown, it would have been perfect.

It's too bad that they messed him up, he's a great talent who deserves better. I hope that they can turn it around and get some momentum behind him again but they aren't making it easy for themselves.

Completely agree. The dude has been made to look a loser time and time again. It's no surprise that he's not as hot as he once was. That's why I thought he was going to take the pin in that threeway so that TNA could rebuild him. Nope, instead he won only to be punked by Roode again. Maybe they'll make the main event a threeway with him, Roode, and Hardy in the future, but still, they keep making him look like a loser in order to advance storylines.

Edit: Also, don't forget that they made everyone, including his fellow coworkers and friends, believe that he was a part of Aces & 8s. Eventually, Aces & 8s proves this wasn't the case when they jumped him. Still, they ruined his reputation and beat the shit out of him and he didn't really get vengeance. Geek.

He's been booked badly since he won the World Title, really bad.

I don't see the point of this.
If you are pissed because he didn't win then bash the creative, if you hate the guy then shouldn't you be happy because he lost?

It's like bashing cena because he didn't win, the IWC marks out every time he jobs to someone.

James Storm will eventually get there, right now... it's not his time because hardy is the champ.
It was a mistake to give him a title shot but maybe something between him and AJ is planned. Let's see what happens but Storm the performer definitely deserves a decent world title reign in 2013.

ps: da fuck means being a "geek" these days?

This is bashing creative. The whole point is creative has booked him so poorly that now he (Storm) comes off as a geek, a loser, a guy who's not important.

I was waiting for your reply since you defend TNA so much. There's nothing to defend here.

You're missing the point completely. Every time they tried to do something huge with Storm, they ended up pulling the rug from him. You can only pull the rug so many times before people stop caring.

Hardy has nothing to do with this. If anything, it should encourage creative not to put Storm in World title matches with Hardy because he's failed so much this year.

Everyone waits for my reply LOL
I defend TNA so much by saying they fucked up by having Storm win the 3 way.. Unless I say TNA is worse than aids, then I'm a A-lister.

Storm isn't bigger than Hardy as a face, so you gonna have storm win the belt while getting booed in the impact zone?

Obviously Roode should have won the 3 way, this way storm wouldn't get hurt by it.

Read what I said again.

Which is the point. Why have Storm win if you're going to make him look idiotic immediately after? Which also leads to, what was the significance of the BFG match?

Unlike the other A-Listers, you are logical and critic the product at times. However, you do come off as overly defensive a lot. Heck, I think two or three weeks ago people were joking about Kurt looking crazy and you made a butthurt comment about it, taking it seriously.

Also,I don't think the point is that Storm should beat Hardy, but that they shouldn't make him look like a jobber so often.
