• WWF Veteran Claims To Be The First Small Guy Who Drew Merchandise Numbers

Old School WWF/WCW Veteran ‘The Hurricane’ Shane Helms took to Twitter to claim that he was informed he’s the first cruiserweight wrestler to have drawn significant merchandise sales numbers.

Here’s what The Hurricane tweeted:

“I was told that I was the first solo act under 200 lbs that moved real Merch. Then Rey came in and BOOM, Merch wasn’t just for the big guys anymore.”

Helms joined the World Wrestling Federation in July 2001 as part of the Invasion storyline after Vince McMahon bought WCW, while the guy who allegedly (and very obviously) outdrew him in merchandise (masks) sales numbers – Rey Mysterio – joined the renamed WWE in the summer of 2002.
