During an interview with Fightful at WrestleCade 2022, James Storm recalled when his America's Most Wanted partner, Chris Harris, left TNA to go to WWE.
"It was kinda weird because when he went to WWE, we really just went our separate ways. There was a lot of bad blood there at the time because we got word that they wanted us to come together as a tag team and I had one more year left on my contract and his [contract] was up. I told him, ‘Just sign one more year and we’ll go together.’ We were more valuable that way. Bob Ryder was trying to tell him, ‘Don’t go without Storm. I’m telling you, don’t do it.’ But he wouldn’t listen. He wanted to go. I can’t blame him. They were trying to throw some money at him and he got up there and they just buried him."
When Harris got there, they changed his name to Braden Walker and became a bit of a meme after he was released.
"I’m not gonna try to toot my own horn, but I think it would have went different. There wouldn’t be a three-disc Braden Walker collection, I wouldn’t think if I went up there. I got him to sign mine. I made one up. I made a cover-up and everything. He stood on the stage with his hands on his hips. He talked to Matt Hardy."
