Lance Storm's Cageside Evaluation

His name is Lance Storm and Cageside Seats readers have reported back on what they love and loathe about the former WWE Intercontinental Champion. Here's the full evaluation.

What you loved:

  1. In-Ring - Had an effortless flow in the ring that looked so natural, his technical skills were at a level above the rest.
  2. Trainer - Storm has had a hand in training Dolph Ziggler, Emma, Tyler Breeze, and Taya Valkyrie.
  3. Teams - You enjoyed many of his tag teams where he aligned himself with Chris Jericho, Chris Candido, and Justin Credible.
  4. Catchphrase - "If I could be serious for a minute..."
  5. Three Titles - In WCW, he held three titles at once and decided to put the Canadian Maple Leaf on each one of them for an added pop.

Best comment comes via Plan R:

"Lance is a genius level wrestler when it comes to the In Ring portion of wrestling. I have seen him wrestle on a few occasions and he was always one of the stand out performers of the night."


What you loathed:

  1. Charisma - Easily his biggest weakness.
  2. "Boring" Gimmick - Creative thought that somehow this would get Storm over. Nope.
  3. Dancing Gimmick - No, wait, this, is what will get him over. It was clear WWE had no idea what to do with Storm. Less is more seemed to work better with his style.
  4. Hair - For a time, he rocked this hair style. Storm said he thought using the hair was a great heel move, but that look was hilariously bad.
  5. Under-appreciated - Plenty of talent in the ring, but didn't get the right gimmicks nor a manager to help push him to the next level.

Best comment comes via __KRH__ :

"'Boring!’ – what kind of gimmick is that?!? I know that he was never the most charismatic wrestler but that was just unnecessary and clearly there was only so far that you could go."

On to the poll! With 177 votes, Lance Storm's average score is 3.8.

Thanks, Cagesiders! Tomorrow's pick sent Shane for a ride.

Until then!
