Quote James Storm recently spoke with Cerrito Live (transcript via wrestlinginc.com). Here are the highlights:

On leaving Impact Wrestling:

“It actually hasn’t [become] official for me, but, yes, I have left Impact Wrestling and it’s just one of those things where it just kind of felt like I did everything I can do with that company and the landscape of it has changed from the time I was there.” Storm continued, “but so many people want to frown upon Dixie [Carter] and Jeff [Jarrett] and all that, but the reason I thank them and Bob Ryder is because basically if it wasn’t for those guys, there would be no ‘Cowboy’ James Storm. There might not be an AJ Styles and might not be a Bobby Roode, might not be all these other guys who got the breaks that Jeff gave us when he started up TNA Impact Wrestling back in the day.”

On the future of the promotion:

“I wish I could say either way and I never wish bad upon anybody and I definitely don’t wish bad upon Impact Wrestling because I’m not there anymore because to me, it gives the boys another place to work where they might not have another place to work. It gives them television exposure and all of that. And as far as where they’ll be, I don’t know. I just know that they need a lot of work in different departments. It’s definitely not the wrestling side because the boys are bringing it. So, hopefully, like I said, hopefully, they’ll be around for a while, just to give the guys another place to work and be able to make a living.”

Wade Keller Podcast has a much better interview with him, lasting over two hours with the second half due to drop tomorrow.
He's a really sound guy who comes across very well. He realises the chances that people with faith gave to him, to make money and he's not forgotten them.
He's a fan at heart so doesn't want to see his old employers struggling.

he's certainly right, without Jeff, there'd have been no NWA/TNA for guys like Daniels and Styles to go once XWF went and through both him and Carter's ownership, Storm, Roode, Style and others were able to show that they would be cut out for a top promotion with a global presence and a television and PPV market.

going to be interesting to see where he does actually go from here, but i'd love to hear and see that pop if he returns to NXT, or hell, if he's given the massive bump to a main roster debut.
