-- Shane Helms took a dig at our earlier article about him calling Shawn Michaels fans "retards", writing on his Twitter, "Lol Nice reporting guys! See people? They cant get sh-t right! RT @WrestlingInc: Helms Calls HBK Fans 'Retards', goo.gl/fb/qttsP"
Helms had yesterday written, "Lol yup. Retards united RT @TheRainbowUhaul: Angry little HBK fans going after @HurricaneHelms. Lulz." He later wrote, "Lol these tweets are popping me. My supporters are awesome, the 'tards' are just LAME and weak!! No game at all." He finally wrote, "I never called HBK's fans tards, just the ignorant peeps that were tweeting me dumb sh-t outta mis-information. I know the truth, they dont!"
So it is true that Helms never directly called HBK fans "retards." We apologize if we misinterpreted Helms' tweets.
-- Speaking of HBK, WrestlingINC.com reader T.J. pointed this out about Shawn Michaels and the Slammy Awards coming up this Monday. There have been a total of six Slammy Award Ceremonies before this Monday (1986, 1987, 1996, 1997, 2008, 2009). Of those six, only four of the ceremonies had a "Match of the Year" award (1996, 1997, 2008, 2009) and every single "Match of the Year" winner has been a Shawn Michaels match. Should his match from Wrestlemania win this year, that will be five in a row for HBK. Here are his previous awards:
