• WWF Veteran Says His Feud With The Rock Wasn’t Originally Planned

On the latest episode of WWE’s The Bump, Old School WWF Veteran “The Hurricane” Gregory Helms (“Sugar” Shane Helms in WCW) talked about a 2003 storyline in which he eventually feuded with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and actually pinned the current Hollywood Megastar in the middle of the ring.

Helms revealed that their rivalry wasn’t even planned but happened organically after they filmed a funny comedy segment, that wasn’t originally supposed to go anywhere.

Here’s what The Hurricane said:

“It was only going to be one time. You know, that first interaction we had in Toronto that was all on paper what it was scheduled to be. It just steamrolled into next week we do another promo and next week we do another promo and it just got funnier and funnier.

Rock was so great. He was appreciative because one of the jabs that he gave at me was a line that I gave him. When he picked up his phone and goes, ‘it’s nothing, he says he knows you.’ That was my line and I suggested it to him and he popped on it, you know; because I knew without a doubt who’s getting the rub here, you know what I mean.

It was kinda like ‘make sure I hold my own.’ It’s weird, because it wasn’t a very big feud, but I feel that people talk about that just as much as any feud I wrestled.”
