The Jobification of Lance Storm: It all started at a RAW that I personally attended in Halifax, Nova Scotia on May 5, 2003.. Lance Storm came out proudly waving his Canadian Flag, while announcers tried to pass it off as “sucking up” as opposed to “patriotism” as they call it when Undertaker does it.. Lance Storm was booked to get squashed by Booker T that night.. Then Lance Storm was written into a boring Goldberg angle, where he supposedly tried to run Goldberg down with a car, but it wasn’t even his idea! So Lance Storm got squashed by Goldberg and then cowardly ratted on the true cultrit, Chris Jericho.. Since then Lance Storm has jobbed to Scott Steiner on HEAT, and Test on RAW.. Lance Storm is one of the top 5 workers on the payroll! How could he get over? Dawn Marie ain’t doing anything right now, is she?
The Jobification of Lance Storm II: Literally the day after I posted the first JoLS paragraph I was shocked to tune in to RAW and see one of my favorite wrestlers completely SHIT ON by WWE writers and brainless fans.. Lance Storm came out on RAW against developmental talent Lance Cade, but instead of putting on a wrestling clinic for the kindergarden fans in attendance, RAW GM Steve Austin came out to the stage and encouraged the crowd to chant “BORING! BORING!” towards Lance Storm.. How is this productive? You’re encouraging the fans to disrespect your talent like that? And they know that the fans will always catch on to anything the almighty Stone Cold says (WHAT?) and soon you will see all the technical wrestlers getting BORING chants at WWE events.. That has to be the most insulting thing for a wrestler!
