SHANE HELMS RESPONDS TO SIGNING RUMOURS

Shane Helms has responded to rumors that his recent signing to WWE has damaged RoH. Speaking on his own podcast, ‘Halfway to Helms’, he denies being stolen and speaks of being allowed to finish out dates that he’s already committed too:

“Regardless of the online rumors, I wasn’t taken away from Ring of Honor. Everything I did there was on a day by day basis, there was never a contract. We agreed on some dates and I fulfilled them. Every single experience I had there was a positive one, and there was no heat there. I love Ring of Honor – a lot of good guys there and I love that locker room.”

“There’s a bunch of dates I’ve already committed too, and WWE is gonna let me finish them. They’re gonna let me do them all, so if you’re a promoter listening to this and you booked me, don’t worry, I’ll be there. Does it mean that Hurricane will pop up in WWE sometime? You never know. You just never know.”

KEVIN OWENS RETURN UPDATE

Kevin Owens has posted an update regarding how his recovery is progressing. Kevin was written off TV in October following a match with Bobby Lashley. While it was reported that Owens injured his knee during the match, this isn’t widely believed, with most assuming the injuries happened beforehand and the match was just used as a convenient vehicle. After having operations on both knees performed, many have been left in the dark as to Kevin’s progress and expected return date. Using his Twitter profile Owens originally tweeted about a match he’d had at the Performace Center with Adam Cole.

Owens later returned to Twitter to clear up any uncertainty his first tweet may have generated:

So, unfortunately not back as soon as many had hoped.
