    To be fair, how do you pass up over DOUBLE the money on a GUARANTEED basis?

    As much as smarks fawn over the "CREATIVE FREEDOM!!!" of NXT and all that, the pay is terrible for guys who have had previously performed on a national/global scale like Storm.

    That's why just about everybody in NXT and WWE Developmental is so eager to be on the main roster ASAP, despite TEH BOOKINGZ of most NXT alumni.

    Oh I understand the "Take the money and run" aspect of it, especially for his family. But that's all he's getting out of TNA. If he ever aspired to be anything more than a TNA guy, that likely out the window now. But, he'll at least have plenty of cash while that ship goes down.

    Considering that if he signed the deal that WWE allegedly offered he would strictly be in NXT, it's not like he would have had much career growth there either.

    If that deal was for him to be both a wrestler and coach, then based on the rumors of how understaffed the Performance Center is and how overworked that they are, I can see why a guy like Storm (who can still command a big money offer from at least one other company) would pass on it.

    Listen if TNA offered me $250k to work like 5 weeks a year guaranteed for two years if they're alive or not....you gotta take it.
