It was revealed earlier this week that former WWE Cruiserweight Champion Shane Helms would be returning to the company as a backstage producer. He joins the likes of Abyss and Sonjay Dutt who signed with the sports entertainment company this year.
Helms talked about his return to the company on a recent episode of his podcast where he made it known that he was taken away from Ring of Honor as he was never under contract with the promotion. Helms had been working with Ring of Honor since June 2018.
“Regardless of the online rumors, I wasn’t taken away from Ring of Honor. Everything I did there was on a day by day basis, there was never a contract. We agreed on some dates and I fulfilled them. Every single experience I had there was a positive one, and there was no heat there. I love Ring of Honor – a lot of good guys there and I love that locker room.”
He continued by stating, “There’s a bunch of dates I’ve already committed too, and WWE is gonna let me finish them. They’re gonna let me do them all, so if you’re a promoter listening to this and you booked me, don’t worry, I’ll be there. Does it mean that Hurricane will pop up in WWE sometime? You never know. You just never know.”
