Classic wow story (without playing classic)

Are any of the original stories still in the game post cataclysm? I want to go back and play the zones and explore old raids, but want to be able to do so at max level so that I can do it solo. I do not have the time to play classic and level in that version of the game (wife, kids, job, life etc).

Unfortunately for all practical purposes the old zones stories are not available outside of Classic WoW any more, no.

It may become more practical to see them again if Classic WoW ever reaches Classic: Wrath of the Lich King.
