Gregory Shane Helms is a professional wrestling veteran, and the longest reigning WWE Cruiserweight Champion of all time.
Earlier this year The Hurricane surprised everyone when he made a quick appearance in the 2018 Royal Rumble match, and now fans are wondering if we could see him in WWE again in the future.
Helms recently spoke to CBS DC about a possible return, and he noted that he’s open to returning under the right circumstances.
“It would depend on the schedule for sure. If they could work with that, then I’m sure there’s stuff that we could talk about. Obviously, their 205 needs a boost. I could boost that for sure, but I could boost the main roster as well. I’ve got full confidence in what I bring to the table. But it’s not like WWE needs anybody… I’m also very happy where I am right now. So if something happens with them… awesome. If it doesn’t, then that final appearance at the Rumble was so damn hot, the crowd popped so loud for me. If that was my last time there, then I’m actually super okay with that too.”
The Hurricane didn’t last long in the 2018 Royal Rumble match, as he was quickly eliminated by John Cena. Apparently John Cena didn’t want to be the one to eliminate The Hurricane, but Helms used an interesting analogy to get Cena on board with the idea.
“He had to agree with that spot, and he didn’t want to at first ’cause he’s the babyface, and I’m the super hero. He didn’t necessarily wanna try to throw me out. I had to talk him into it. He’s a super good guy, and when I explained to him, “I’m Hurricane, man. I gotta go after the top guy. I might be a little monkey, but I think I’m King Kong. And I’m going after Godzilla, and you’re Godzilla in there.” And that was almost word for word what I said, and he started laughing. And when I told him the idea, he popped for it, and it worked it out really well. So hats off to John and everybody for helping me keep it a secret. ‘Cause it was difficult in this day and age to even keep that secret. But we had fun with it.”
