Shane Helms Was The Master Of The Pedigree

Shane Helms thinks he took Triple H’s finisher better than anybody else.

The man also known as “The Hurricane” has taken to Twitter to show fans why he was considered one of the top workers in WWE during his day. The former Cruiserweight Champion wrestled for the company between 2001 and 2010. He had a number of different roles in the company, including as a backstage producer.

One of these, apparently, was to eat Pedigrees from Triple H. Shane Helms shared the ring with Triple H nine times between 2002 and 2006. He won just once, in a tag team encounter also involving Booker T and Ric Flair.

These do not include various matches that including one of the two as the legal competitor, which ended in Helms taking Triple H’s finisher in or outside the ring. And according to Helms, nobody took it better than him.

A Twitter user claimed that Triple H’s Pedigree was better when he didn’t release his opponents arms. Shane Helms responded to this with a compilation of him taking the Pedigree just as the user described.

This is where he called him “Master of the Pedigree”, implying he was the best at bumping and selling Triple H’s finishing move in the WWE.

“I was the master of the Pedigree.”

Shane Helms Thinks He Deserves WWE Hall of Fame Induction

Speaking on Insight with Chris Van Vliet, Shane Helms explained why he thinks he deserves to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Famer.

The former WWE and WCW star said that he was a pioneer of a certain style in WWE. He explained how he meshed different styles into something not seen before in the US, and deserves to be recognised.

“I think he should,” Shane Helms said. “I think if you know Shane Helms’ story, in terms of how, I think I really helped light heavyweight wrestling as well as anybody. Definitely there are people I think that did more, and definitely a lot of people that did less. But the style I brought as Sugar Shane, I think that’s the style you see on TV the most now.

“I was definitely one of the first pioneers of that, in terms of, I was studying Lucha, I was studying the European style and the Japanese style, and the American style, both old-school and the northwestern style, the Philadelphia-area style. So I really tried to combine all of that into this hybrid thing.”
