Sorry about your damn luck, TNA.
The official Twitter accounts of “NXT” and WWE COO Triple H, as well as WWE’s Instagram account, sent out the following about Storm’s debut:

There have been a lot of rumors over the past few weeks that Storm had signed with WWE, but no official word on the contract. Storm was apparently backstage at last night’s “NXT Takeover: Respect” event, but failed to make an appearance. In addition, Storm took to Twitter, making a tease that he was in fact coming to WWE soon:

I’ll be honest, rarely do I watch TNA. The product had become so bad, I gave up on them a long time ago. However, from what I have watched online, Storm is the real deal and will make a great addition to NXT and WWE. I wonder who his first feud will be against.
