Hurricane Helms On Keeping His Royal Rumble Appearance A Surprise, Social Media Leading To The Booking, More

WWE legend, Hurricane Helms was a recent guest on the X-Pac 12360 Podcast where he spoke about his Royal Rumble appearance. Below are some highlights of the interview with a H/T to Rajah.com for the transcriptions.

Keeping his Royal Rumble appearance a surprise:

“We only finalized it the week before. I know they (WWE) wanted me to come in years prior but I was either contractually obligated to other companies or at one time I was actually injured and couldn’t do it. This time the timing was just right. So it worked out really well. I was just happy we were able to keep it a secret. In today’s social media age, the fact that we were able to keep it, sneaking through the airports in a disguise. Even the boys didn’t know. The other guys in the Rumble didn’t know until about thirty minutes before the Rumble match started. The pay-per-view was underway and they still didn’t know until they brought me and Rey [Mysterio] in the building.”

Social media leading to his Rumble booking:

“2017 was really good and 2018 it’s just like something kicked back into gear cause fans are really taking to a lot of stuff. All the crazy shit I put on social media fans are really digging that. That’s actually been a real big boom. The whole Rumble appearance happened because of something I posted on Instagram. When they were thinking about who to add to the Rumble at that particular moment something I put up went kinda viral and it clicked. Oh, we should get the Hurricane.”

Wanting to work with Enzo Amore:

“I really hate the whole Enzo situation or whatever all happened to him and I don’t know all the details so I’m not going to get into it but he was a star there (205 Live). He was the guy that brought attention to the show and he was a guy I would have loved to had worked with if I was Hurricane. He would have been a perfect heel. He would have been the Joker to my Batman he would have been perfect for me.”
