James Storm was recently a guest on Refin' It Up with Brian Hebner, where he spoke about getting paired up with Robert Roode to form Beer Money in TNA Wrestling.
“We were just hanging out backstage and I remember Dutch Mantell coming up to us and saying ‘Hey, just so you know, we don’t have anything for you, so we’re just going to put you and you together for a while.' It was just supposed to be a short term deal, you know, until we can figure out something for you guys. It was like, alright. Then it’s one of those things where me and Bobby, we were like if we’re going to be together, let’s try to do something really cool while we’re together.”
On why Beer Money never united in WWE:
“It was just a matter of different timing in different directions and stuff. I had gone there and things just didn’t work out because of family reasons. Then I went back to Impact. Then Bobby’s contract was actually up, I think, like eight months later, and we had talked about that he wanted to go, and I wished him luck. Every man has to do their own journey. To me, right now in my life, it worked out for me perfectly, because I’m really happy with my life right now.”
