Earlier this past summer, it was announced that former WWE star Shane “Hurricane” Helms had signed a deal with Ring Of Honor wrestling. However, its been a while since Helms has been on ROH programming. Many wondered if the relationship between Helms and ROH was perhaps damaged. Speaking to WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross on his “Ross Report” podcast, Helms cleared the situation up.
“Hurricane” admitted that things with ROH are actually going great, and the only issue is that they haven’t agreed to anymore dates at the moment. With that being said, ROH is allegedly happy with what they got out of Helms against Marty Scurll:
“Yeah [Helms is still affiliated with ROH], we just haven’t agreed to dates.” Helms explained, “we’re on wonderful terms. They are super happy with me. They’re happy with how everything worked out with me and Marty Scurll. Yeah, I like [ROH]. I like the locker room. They’re very positive. Everybody’s busy.
“Man, seeing The Young Bucks and Cody, it seems like they’ve got different projects every week and they’re doing it all the time. Whether it’s them or SCU, guys like that, filming these vignettes. How they got over that Being The Elite YouTube show. I mean, it helped guys like Adam Page.
“It helped guys like Marty. I did the Gregory Helms thing on there and for the first time in my career, Gregory Helms for a brief moment, was more over than ‘The Hurricane’ was just from that Being The Elite video. So I love seeing guys work hard and be excited about it.”
