TNA wrestler James Storm seems to have suggested that he may be cast in the next season of Dancing With the Stars - assuming his meeting with them went well.
"Just arrived for my meeting with ABC. These boots are made for dancing not walking," Storm tweeted Thursday along with a photo of a Dancing With the Stars poster.

The 37-year-old wrestler has been participating in Total Nonstop Action wrestling since 2002, with a number of championships under his belt.
Athletes have done very well on Dancing With the Stars, though there have only been two wrestlers who have competed on the show. WWE Diva Stacy Keibler came in third place during the second season of DWTS, partnered with Tony Dovolani, while WWE star Chris Jericho came in seventh place with Cheryl Burke in Season 12.
There have actually been very few cast rumors going into Season 19 of Dancing With the Stars compared to previous seasons. Among those who could be in the hunt include country superstar Shania Twain (who said she would "consider" competing) and The Walking Dead actor Vincent M. Ward (who has been campaigning on Twitter to compete).
Dancing With the Stars Season 19 is set to premiere Monday, Sept. 15 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC. The network is also planning a separate results show for the first two weeks of competition, to air on Tuesday.
