Former ECW, WCW and WWE star Lance Storm has a new commentary up on his official website at this link talking about his return to the ring of Ring of Honor at events in Toronto, Ontario, Canada this weekend.
“It’s been 2 years since my last real match (I don?t count the surprise tag match I did under a mask here locally) so this was a big physical undertaking for me. Even though I am in the ring regularly with my students at my school, it’s no where near the same thing as working a legitimate match in front of a crowd, especially at the ROH level.
There were a couple matches in the past that I figured were going to be the one, going to be my last official match, but they didn?t really feel like it. I think I wanted them to be the last one, but they just weren?t meant to be my last. This time it felt right, and I think that’s why I got so emotional. I?m not what I was, but I was still close enough to it, to close the show and be happy with the match I put out there. I got to put someone over who deserved to be put over, and seemed to appreciate my doing it. My family wasn?t there this time, but maybe that too was the way things were meant to be. I survived this business with my family in tact (my greatest achievement) primarily by leaving this business on the road and being Lance Evers at home.
I shared this match with people who share my love and respect for this business, and I am now home being Lance Evers with the family I will share the rest of my life with. I still have my school, and I will always be a part of this business, but I truly believe I am now done as a performer. They say, never say never in this business, and because of that I won?t, but I think I left it all in the ring that night and I believe I wrote the final page in the 19-year long book that was the career of Lance Storm.”
It’s a great read and definitely worth checking out.
