Gregory Helms On What Vince McMahon Told Him When He Won The Cruiserweight Championship


Gregory Helms, or better known to some as The Hurricane recently talked with Still Real To Us’s radio show; Still Real Radio. Helms discussed the current Cruiserweight division in WWE & revealed what Vince McMahon told him after he captured the Cruiserweight Title at the 2006 Royal Rumble PPV.

Here are the highlights:

Thoughts On The Current Cruiserweights:

“They got stars, but do they really have a superstar? And I’m not talking about superstar because that’s what we’re supposed to label them. But do they have a superstar yet? Not yet. But there’s somebody there. I definitely think Cedric Alexander has the capabilities, I think Austin Aries has everything they need, Rich Swann’s personality; he’s definitely one of the guys that could keep it going. They probably should’ve kept the belt on him. I remember thinking his run should’ve went a little longer but it didn’t. I like TJ more as a heel than a babyface. There’s a smugness about TJ that I think will translate a little bit better of a heel and we’ll see what they can do with him on that. But I mean they got the talent, but like I said they just need that personality to really pop.”

What Vince McMahon Told Him Following His Cruiserweight Title Victory:

“I remember when I got that Cruiserweight Title as Gregory Helms and I was talking to Vince about it and Vince goes, ‘to be honest with you, that belt ain’t meant s**t since the last time you held it’ and that’s an unsolicited compliment from Vince, which you know, they’re few and far between sometimes so that’s one I’ll always remember.”
