He had all the titles except one, pretty damn successful I'd say. His legacy is great wrestler, not much on personality. Same as Dean Malenko.

Id say he did very well in WCW but that's not saying much as WCWs title meant nothing by then but that wasn't his fault, if anything he made them mean a little more at the end. I think he's along the lines of Dean Malenko being a great technical wrestler but with the charisma of a cardboard box as individuals better in a tag team with someone who has the verbal skills to compliment their wrestling skills.

He was actually pretty fun back in ECW, and in WCW he had every title except the big one. To me, he's one of the best technical wrestlers of all time.

His schtick was one of the best things going in WCW during that period. But I'm Canadian so maybe I'm a little biased.


I love professional-wrestling.

Re: How successful was Lance Storm in wCw?

Very successful, and i'm glad i can say that. His Canadian Champ run was gold and he more then deserved it. From the classics he put on in the ECW, though the ones he gave us in WcW all the way to his UnAmerican stuff with Regal and his recent RoH bouts as the grizzled old veteran. Lance Storm always gave you your money's worth and often much more.

Re: How successful was Lance Storm in wCw?

I would say he was very successful in WCW, for such a short time. They seemed to be throwing all of their eggs in his basket, and I could have seen him main eventing. In my opinion, in late WCW Lance Storm was one of the things WCW got right, despite things around him being woeful.
