TNA is downplaying the signing, and spinning it as if he was a crybaby and an attitude problem, and that they don’t care he is leaving the promotion. TNA had apparently not realized his contract lapsed or simply thought WWE would not want him.
WWE has been fielding overtures from TNA talent (or their representatives), so it wouldn’t be surprising to see other TNA departures for Stamford, CT.
Chris Harris will be leaving behind his former tag team partner James Storm, who just signed a new contract recently.
UPDATE: The rumors surrounding Chris Harris leaving TNA are rampant, and as they say, there’s no smoke without fire. Steve Gerweck is now reporting that Harris has quit TNA officially. He is believed to have worked out a good contract with WWE and won’t go to development.
BREAKING NEWS: TNAWrestling.com has posted a story about Chris Harris’ departure, so it is now offical. Within the next few months, we will see the “Wildcat” in the WWE.
