Wrestling Veteran Discusses Current WWE Role WWE

‘Hurricane’ Shane Helms has commented on his current role with WWE, noting that at times, he enjoys it more than he enjoyed wrestling.

Speaking on GAW TV, Helms noted that he feels he was made to be a wrestling producer.

Discussing his role, he said:

“I love (producing). Strangely enough, I like producing almost as much and sometimes more than working.

“I never thought anything would ever exceed my love for actually being in the ring. That was where I was always most at home, as I’m pretty sure you ladies feel the same way.

“I just absolutely adored it, and I still do. Just the physical part of that, kind of my body checked out a little while ago.

“But the producing, man, I absolutely love this job. I might have been made more for this than actually wrestling.”

Noting that he doesn’t mind being a ‘small piece of the puzzle’, Helms said:

“When an idea that I come up with and they’re able to utilize that 100%. I get super proud of that,” Helms said.

“We just did a European tour, like where we set records on a couple of nights. Paris, France, too, by the way, I don’t know if you guys saw my tweet.

“It is in a conversation now for the best wrestling town in the world…But long story short, the main event of that match, the guys are using moves I created every night.

“And not because I asked them to, because they wanted to. So, little things like that, talents using moves I came up with or using sayings. I come up with catch phrases or.

“I came up with ‘(The) Eradicator’ for Rhea Ripley. So, when she won the title at WrestleMania, and they were like ‘The Eradicator,’ I’m like, ‘Yes, that’s so cool.’

“It’s just a little tiny piece of the puzzle. But I said something to somebody recently because they helped me do something and they were like, ‘Yeah, it was just a small thing.’

“I was like, ‘No, brother. It doesn’t matter how small your piece of the puzzle is, the puzzle is not complete without you.’

“No matter how successful anybody is, there’s a bunch of little people that helped you get along, helped you get there. So, I don’t mind being a small piece of the puzzle.”
