The Hurricane: Bio
When the WWE Universe was threatened by evil, only one masked crusader had the strength, the power and the fortitude to defend it — The Hurricane!
Gregory Shane Helms signed with WWE in 2001 when WCW folded as the reigning WCW Cruiserweight Champion. Almost immediately, Helms injected more enterainment into his sports-entertaining by becoming a superhero that assembled a list of titles so impressive you'd need super-strength to carry them all. Not only did The Hurricane hold the World Tag Team Titles with Kane, but he won the WWE Cruiserweight, Hardcore and European Titles along the way.
The emerald-suited Superstar tangled with some of the biggest names in WWE, with his opponents often feeling the full force of a Category 5 Hurricane. Even legendary ring warriors such as The Rock have felt this superhero's righteous fury, as The Hurricane was once able to chokeslam The Most Electrifying Man in Sports-Entertainment and pin him (with a little help from "Stone Cold" Steve Austin).
Towards the end of his crime fighting days, The Hurricane swooped into WWE's relaunched ECW, where his true identity remained a well-guarded secret — though some of his opponents believed there to be a striking similarity between ECW's superhero and the show's resident reporter, Gregory Helms.
He left WWE in February 2010 but there have been sightings of a green storm all over the world since then. If you see it, stand back because there's a Hurricane coming through!
