As far as I can tell the storyline of wow as it currently exists goes like this: You, a humble orc of small means were one day mailed a bunch of backpacks and armor. Not wanting to let it go to waste, you marched out and killed a bunch of harpies or something in the wake of an earthquake. After single handedly saving your home village, you marched off to the big city of Orgrimmar. Once there, you used your telepathy to explain why they call it the xbox 360 repeatedly in-between being randomly teleported to various caves, temples, prisons, caves, colleges, and caves. Later, you realized you always had the latent power to make hundreds of different horses appear.
