Shane Helms is one of the most seasoned pro-wrestlers in the WWE. The veteran superstar has been paying a lot of attention to the culture surrounding pro-wrestling. Helms holds an anti-WWE-Rumor-Mill stance, and he often takes to social media to let fans know how he thinks pro-wrestling should be enjoyed.

Helms took to Twitter in order to tell fans that they should stop caring about the behind-the-scenes “bullsh*t.” He added that if they stop caring about that, they’ll be able to focus more on the real aspects of wrestling and enjoy it more. However, he met opposition from fans, which made him go off.

I promise all wrestling fans, if you stop investing in this “behind the scenes” rumor-mill horseshit, you’ll enjoy Pro Wrestling soooo much more. Imagine giving this much attention to “behind the scenes shit” with movies and other TV shows? Why?? Sooo stupid.

Shane responded to a report by ComicBook.com about the release of several WWE superstars. A fan noted that movies & TV shows usually never have behind-the-scenes websites. He said that this simply would not work, which rather pissed Helms off. He started off his Twitter-rant by saying that people tearing wrestling down for Ad-Clicks is not for him.

Those almost unanimously promote their respective industries. They don’t tear them down for Ad Clicks. You not recognizing that you’re being worked by websites doesn’t make you right. Sorry bud. I love wrestling. People that tear it down aren’t for me.

After a fan replied to his tweet asking if he meant the BTS shows such as The Talking Dead. Helms got back at him by noting the massive difference that exists between Talking Dead & WWE Rumor Mill websites, according to him. He added that the show puts the Walking Dead in promotion, and not unnecessarily criticize it.

I don’t care about that show either but that show puts over the Walking Dead, it doesn’t sh*t on it for Ad Clicks. Massive difference.

Helms lost it when one fan sarcastically summed up his tweet by saying “Just watch the show.” The 47-year old then added that he always promotes any show he’s with. He said that any negative reactions to it are simply proving him right, and that he loves the business.
