Iâ<80><99>ve had a lot of people sending me emails about Gregory/Shane Helms, and his recent neck injury, so I figured I could dedicate a commentary to my good buddy and both discuss and update you on his condition as well as perhaps tell a few good Hurri-Shane stories.
I use the name Hurri-Shane, because despite him not using the Hurricane gimmick anymore that is what I still tend to call him. Iâ<80><99>m not sure why, generally I stick with whatever name a guy was using when I first meet him but Shane some how became Hurricane to me even though he was Shane Helms the first time we met. Perhaps it is due to the fact that we started traveling together and really became friends while he was the Hurricane character and that just stuck. I was after all part of the Hurri-league with him when we first joined the WWF, so to a certain extend Shane will always be The Hurricane to me.
Over the course of my career Iâ<80><99>ve had the pleasure of both working with and tagging with The Hurricane. I made my WCW debut hitting a springboard drop kick to the back of his head, and weâ<80><99>ve been friends ever since.
