Shane Helms explains why he gave back his ALL IN pay check to Cody Rhodes

Shane Helms, also known as The Hurricane, shared a cool story about how he returned a payday for his work at the All In event last year. This show was held before AEW had even launched.

At the time, Helms was working for several promotions such as Impact Wrestling and Ring Of Honor. Now, he’s under contract with the WWE to work as an agent.

While doing a recent interview with Fightful, Helms talked about why he returned his payday to Cody Rhodes, which was the fact that it was a gift from him to Cody.

“It was Starrcast with All In, so I was booked for that as a part of Keepin’ It 100. Then they booked me for a live viewing party. Conrad loves when I host things and talk crazy and that stuff. Being if Ring of Honor with Cody, I said I’d be there if they needed me for anything. I said ‘I’m not looking for a payday, I like what you all are doing, I’ll contribute in any way I can.’

Cody was worried about insulting me by offering me something he thought was beneath me. I was like ‘Bro. No. Whatever you need, I’ll do.’ He paid me and I sent it back. I told him I was going to do that. It was my gift to them for doing what they were doing. It shined such a positive light on the business. It shows you what’s possible when you do things the right way,” said Helms.
