Canadian grappler Lance Storm honed his craft in Canada, Japan and regional promotions across the United States. It wasn’t until he made his way to Philadelphia, though, that he really captured the attentions of fans across the world. When Storm joined ECW, his no-nonsense demeanor and flawless technical abilities made him standout among the chair-swinging freaks in the locker room.
Although he became an ECW Tag Team Champion with Chris Candido, Storm truly left his mark on the organization when he joined forces with his protégé Justin Credible to become The Impact Players. Accompanied by Dawn Marie and Jason, Storm and Credible won the ECW Tag Team Titles on two occasions and were regarded as one of the most dominant duos in the organization’s history. Storm never held a singles championship, but his ECW experience helped him flourish as a singles star in WCW. — KEVIN POWERS
