More On Lance Storm Leaving WWE; Will Work ECW PPV

Ryan Clark


A New Direction

May 16, 2005

My life and career are taking yet another strange turn. After long debate with my wife, I’ve decided it was time to get off the road completely, and stay home with my family. Last week I gave my notice to WWE and we will be parting ways at the end of my current contract this July. The office and I are parting on great terms and will continue to keep in touch, as we are both open to the possibility of working together again in the future. I can’t thank WWE enough for everything it has afforded me over the past 4 years.

My departure from WWE won’t be a complete end to my wrestling career as I plan to open my own wrestling school. I’ve always kept this possibility alive in the back of my mind and I think it is finally time. I’ve always enjoyed teaching, and after a year as head trainer in WWE’s developmental system (OVW), I know this is something I will both enjoy and be very good at.

I am currently searching for a building to house my school and hope to be up and running this September. Nick (my web guy) is working on a new section to my website, which will deal with the school, and should have more details posted in a few weeks. If you’ve ever thought about getting into Pro-Wrestling this will be your chance to be trained by Lance Storm, in The Wrestling Capitol of the World, Calgary…Alberta, Canada.

I will have phone, fax, a regular mailing address, and a dedicated e-mail address available soon, but until then you can direct all wrestling school questions and comments to me at Email will always be the best method of first contact and I will post the new e-mail address as soon as I have it up and running. I will be capping my fall classes (limiting numbers) to provide enough, one on one, hands on instruction (and yes I will be the one in the ring with you not some other instructor I hire). So if you are interested in getting your name in the hat early, be sure to drop me an e-mail now.

With all the work on my plate getting my school up and running, I am going to have to put Book Marks on hold. At the completion of our current book, Amulet of Samarkand by Jonathan Stroud, there will not be a new one, at least for a while. I hope I will be able to bring Book Marks back in the near future, but I’m afraid I just won’t have the time for it right now.

Oh yah, and for all of you who have asked about ECW One Night Stand. I am working it and am extremely excited about my involvement in the show. If you are a Lance Storm, or ECW Fan you have to see this show!!!

All the best everyone,
