Source: Kayfabe Wrestling RadioFormer WCW and WWE star "Hurricane" Shane Helms joined Kayfabe Wrestling Radio Tuesday Night. In a nearly 30 minute interview, he discussed his views on the fan fests and other meet and greets with the fans, his time with 3 Count and his views of WWE's new group 3MB, meeting Jessicka Havok before she made it big in the business and much more. You can check out highlights from the interview below:
Does he like the fan interactions events like "Legends of the Ring" from this past weekend: "Yeah, I love them, because you get to be the worker and the fan at the same time. Especially if some of the older guys show up, I mean Vader showed up and he had that big headpiece he used to wear; I didn't really have time to go see it or anything like that, but I remember thinking that was cool. You know, just a lot of the legends you just don't get to see anymore and a lot of fans don't get to see them anymore, so you kind of get to be and get in that little fan zone. (Kevin) Nash gets to come in and you got all these guys like Snuka; like I said, the list just goes on and on. So, I mean, it kind of gets annoying when you have to sit there and work and you don't get to hang out with your friends for a little bit; but it's very cool."
His thoughts on WWE's new 3MB and his involvement with 3 Count: Yeah, I got flooded with this question since last night. I like this new band and if they can make it work, more power to them. You know, 3 Count was more over after it was over than when it was around. I remember when me and Shannon (Moore) were teaming briefly in WWE; I was the Hurricane and he was coming in trying to make a name, and get his name over, and people would chant 3 Count every single night. I mean, we are talking about, these are when we'd draw really good houses and we were just like 'Where were you people when we were 3 Count? When we were 3 Count, you all would chant we suck every night!" But we always had a lot of fun and we'd always do the dance for them; even now, at indy shows, if there's a good 3 Count chant, I pull out a move every now and then. But back to the question, I hope it works for those guys; it got a lot of attention last night, especially sent my way, so good for them."
About meeting Jessicka Havok and his opinions of the Divas: "She came to an autograph signing, and I got a picture of her before she ever got into the business. And she's really good too; I like that style, she's not that stereotypical Diva or Knockout. She's kind of an asskicker and I think that's sorely needed in the women's division."
His views of the wrestlers today and if they are just "cookie cutter mold" style: "I think as far as this thing, there's very few guys I'm afraid of; you have to have that have the fear factor that leads into the believability factor. There is just so many guys out there that just no way in hell they shouldn't kick my ass. And I know there are a lot of fans out there that believe that too. And trust me, my character was a super hero; my character wasn't built to instill fear, so I don't want to sound hypocritical. But, at the same time, when I was a kid, I'd see Arn Anderson and that was a grown ass man out there; that wasn't a little kid. And he was still young, he always looked 35; I don't think there was ever a point in Arn's life when he didn't look 35 and I think even when he was in high school, he looked 35. He always came of like 'this is a grown man fighting'.
