James Storm took to Twitter this week to derail any rumours surrounding a potential return to IMPACT Wrestling, stating his recent return was a one-off.

Storm appeared at Bound For Glory back in October of this year as a surprise entrant in the ‘Call Your Shot’ Gauntlet Battle Royale. Though ‘The Cowboy’ fought a losing battle after being eliminated by Sami Callihan, the appearance left fans wondering if the former TNA World Heavyweight Champion would be making a full time return to the company. However, Storm took to twitter to dismiss the rumours, stating:

“No. I was asked to come in and help out and that’s what I did. It was fun as wrestling should be and they have a lot of upside for sure.”

James Storm made his TNA debut back in 2002, appearing at the promotions debut pay-per-view event, teaming with Psicosis to face The Johnsons. Storm would go on to stay with the company for over a decade, teaming with Bobby Roode to form Beer Money as well as capturing several championships within the promotion. Between TNA/Impact stints Storm would wrestle for New Japan Pro Wrestling, Pro Wrestling Noah and NXT.

Though seemingly confirming he has no plans on returning to the company full-time, Storm will appear on IMPACT television once again this Saturday at Turning Point, teaming with former rival Chris Sabin to face Team XXXL. Replying to a fan on Twitter, Storm confirmed Turning Point to be his only Impact appearance at the moment:

“So far I do 1 more. So stay tuned. It was something I wish there was a crowd for but everyone involved stepped up, beat each other up and had fun.”

Inside The Ropes will have live coverage of IMPACT Turning Point.
