Shane Helms' exit from Global Force Wrestling doesn't appear to be an amicable one.
Pro Wrestling Sheet spoke to Shane Helms on a recent episode of The Sheet Podcast to talk several topics. In an excerpt below, Helms explained having heat from the Hardy's exit from Impact, and his time as an agent with the company. Be sure to listen to the full podcast at this link.
"I think the technical term is bovine defecation. The street term is bullshit. Of course, financial played a part into it. But the reason there were too many agents or producers is because he brought in his buddies who aren’t qualified to be there. So if you hadn’t brought in unqualified people to put into those positions the situation would never have arisen."
"I caught some residual heat when the contractual situation with Anthem and the Hardys broke down. I got text messages asking me what did I know. "
"Just a lot weird, angry texts and very unprofessional and inappropriate texts to me. To the point where there had to be a phone call made and then I had to get loud. I’m not putting up with this. And having to tell Jeff, ‘You’re not going to talk to me in-person like you’re talking to me on this phone. At least you better not.’ My reputation for how I handle myself in the business is kind of well-known. Then he seemed to calm down. When we got to TV it was kind of like, ‘Is everything cool?’ And he assured me it was and nothing was going to happen and whatever residual heat that was there wasn’t there. But even when I met Ed (Nordholm) the next time there was some kind of weird standoffishness towards him.
"But I still had my hopes up because of the job I was doing. I liked being an agent, I liked coaching people, I like teaching people and stuff like that. I was enjoying it and I was staying positive, but the writing was on the wall.”
