I think this more than explains why he didn't take Roode's strap at Lockdown.“Cowboy” James Storm announced that he would be taking time off from the ring, including live events. He cut a promo in iMPACT! about his luck running out and followed that up with a tweet.
He wrote: “Emotional time in my life after Lockdown. Need time to think about what I need to do and will not be making live events. I apologize.”
The word is that this is an opportunity for him to heal from several nagging injuries. He is expected to be out for at least several weeks.
