Former WWE, WCW and ECW wrestler Lance Storm will be returning to WWE as a producer, he announced Saturday on Twitter.

For those wondering: After SWA closes I will be returning to the #WWE to work as a Producer. I’m really looking forward to working with such a high level of talent again.

The 50-year-old got a taste of the producing role while with Impact Wrestling earlier this year and has been a guest trainer at the WWE Performance Center in the past. He announced in late-August on his podcast with Bryan Alvarez that he was closing his Storm Wrestling Academy in anticipation of starting a new project. 

Storm (Lance Evers) will work with the main roster, but it's unclear what brand he will work with and what his official start date is. The final session with his school wraps up on November 29th.

He moved to WWE in 2001 when the company acquired WCW and became the first WCW wrestler to appear on Raw, doing a run-in. He remained with the company full time through 2005 when he left to open up his wrestling school. He was semi-retired in the decade that followed, but was active in working featured matches for select indie promotions, Ring of Honor, and House of Hardcore.

Storm, trained in the same class as AEW Champion Chris Jericho, has been in the wrestling business since 1990. After making a name for himself in ECW from 1997-2000, he signed with WCW and wrestled there for two years before the WWE acquisition.
