James Storm defeated Eli Drake at Thursday's TNA Impact Wrestling tapings to become the new King of the Mountain Champion. The match should air on the August 4th Impact episode.

This is Storm's first reign with the KOTM Title. It looks like his first defense will come against Bobby Lashley, who issued a title vs. title challenge that was accepted by Storm. No word yet on when that match will take place.
