Lance Storm SHOOTS on Star Wars!
As one of the most under utilised WWE wrestlers of all-time, Lance Storm has more reason than most to be bitter about life. But Lance, there’s just obi-wan thing you can’t do, and that’s disrespect Star Wars.
Despite this, Storm has qui-gon on quite the Twitter rant about the most recent installment in the Star Wars universe, Solo: A Star Wars Story. Now for those of you who haven’t seen the movie, we’re about to drop a bit of a spoiler. So skip ahead if you don’t want that spoiled. I’ll wait.
Storm questions the film’s timeline and whether or not it makes sense, which is possibly a side effects of working in the WWE for so long. “There is a big time issue with Phantom Menace and the end of Solo yes? Like a huge mistake in the time line. Han would have to be at minimum 10+ yrs older than Anikin.”
That’s not how you spell Anakin, Lance and you know it.
Of course any Star Wars fan worth their salt knows that in the Expanded Universe it was revealed that Darth Maul survived the end of The Phantom Menace and got mechanical legs, and even lived up until just before the events of A New Hope. Replying to a fan who suggested it would all makes sense if Lance read the comics, watched the cartoons, read the books or just read Wookipedia, Storm replied: “That’s bulls***. You don’t get to do a nonsensical angle on RAW and then offer a lame explanation on Superstars. That doesn’t fly.”
Thankfully for us wrestling fans, he then put some of the characters into wrestling roles to make it easier for us all to understand his true feelings on the film. “Still really enjoyed Solo. I always thought killing off Darth Maul, to go with Count Dooku as top heel was a worse call than Arquette as champ in WCW.”
Which in a way is true, from a certain point of view.
It’s BACK !!! WOS Wrestling, the Dawn Of An New Era. Let the games begin … Coming this July #WOSW#ITV#WRESTLING

WOS Wrestling Announce Talent
And on the topic of Twitter, there are very few better ways to get an important message out to fans these days, and these announcements are a bit huge. Following the trailer reveal of the much anticipated return of WOS Wrestling on ITV , which will air as a 10 part series this month, we now have more news regarding the talent that will appear.
Not only will we see former Love Island star Adam Maxted, WOS Wrestling also announced Davey Boy Smith Jr. , Mae Young Classic entrant Kay Lee Ray , and the former Wade Barrett Stu Bennett, So Cal Val and Alex Shane will provide commentary. Not only that, but WrestleTalk’s prestigious Joe Hendry has also been announced.
Joe Hendry Returning To ROH
And speaking of easy segues, Ring of Honor have announced that Joe Hendry will be appearing in the inaugural ROH international cup . Hendry was last seen in ROH as part of the Honor United tour, when he pushed the then ROH TV champion Silas Young to the limit in a title match.
He’s sure to get quite the pop as well, as the first round of the tournament is taking place in Hendry’s home town of Glasgow…which if this was WWE would mean that he’s definitely gonna lose.
Kenny Omega To WWE?
Which is something Kenny Omega should consider when thinking about his next move. The current IWGP Heavyweight Champion was a guest star on the latest episode of The Ross Report with Jim Ross, when the inevitable question of him going to WWE came up. But rather than play coy like a lot of other wrestlers, Omega was very open about the idea.
“When I think about the possibility of something like that, I get excited. Every promotion has so many good guys, there’s no way I would have a bad time going anywhere. WWE right now has a very great collection of talent. I feel like it would be a missed opportunity if I couldn’t work with them at some point. If I could work with Seth Rollins, that would be a lot of fun. And of course the huge name in all that is AJ [Styles]. I would love to wrestle him at some point. And I would like to be able to do it while I can still move.”
