Title: Gregory Helms Return Revealed?

- Injured WWE SmackDown Superstar Gregory Helms has posted the image below on his MySpace page which could hint at his return. By the looks of the picture, Helms could be returning on 10/21. That date is a Tuesday night, which would more than likely be the SmackDown tapings for that week and just 5 days from WWE's Cyber Sunday pay-per-view. Check out the clue below:

If it is indeed true, even though it's still a good 3 months would be good to see him back as I can't remember how long he actually has been out, but it's seemed forever.

I didn't like him much anyways. Hes not much better than Charlie Haas in my opinion. Like watching paint dry.

i would not go as far as that he's not the best but he ain't the worst.

I'm a fan of Gregory Helms and it's good to see him returning soon cause I think he needs to bring something to the longly vacated Cruiserweight Championship. I hope he's back sooner than later.

Well I think he's one of the better cruiserweights in history, it's just that his career has been marred with injuries. it's a shame really, he could've been the next cruiser to step up and break the weight barrier like Rey did, but with all the injuries it seems very unlikely to me now.

Still, I can't wait for his return.

I hate how all these noobs come on and only know the gregory helms from what he has recently done.lol.

I loved him in WCW and have been a fan of him ever since. i think after he got rid of the hurricane gimmick they didn't use him as well as they could....but they never used the cruserweaght champ that good unless it was rey. i think helms is very underrated and im sure if WWE pushed him like they pushed some others then people would be saying how much they couldn't wait for him to return.

I thought his best work was as the hurricane, at least the early days and including the times where he beat the Rock and teamed with Kane. He really made that gimmick work, despite it being a little silly. When they stuck him with Rosey, things got stale pretty quickly.

His recent work on SD before he broke his neck was amazing, I loved his matches. I can't wait for him to come back, hopefully have a US title run somewhere down the line.

Edit: Look to see how much I put him over in my tournament, lol. He beat Claudio :)

Well it's about damn time. One of my fave wrestlers on smackdown. For a minute I thought he wasn't gonna come back at all.

Oh yeah I remember the Rock being defeated by Hurricane, lol. He did have a good gimmick as Hurricane but it got really, really stale and he needed a change. This change has done the world of good. Now I just can't wait for him to return, we need a Cruiserweight Champion.

I like the hurricane gimmick as well i just think it ran to long and they should have ended and made his heel turn more of a big deal i think if they did that he would be in the US title picture now or might have already been IC or US Champ. The Only thing is i wish WWE would let him use the vertabreaker.

It's a sick move but WWE doesn't allow moves neck moves for the most part, and it would be pretty odd to let someone who just broke his neck and has been out for almost two years use it, lol. I mean they barely let Taker use the Tombstone.  Considering how many people have broken their necks with much less, i don't blame them.

There was no audio, and it disappeared after 2-3 seconds, but a handful of people there noticed it.

its about freaking time! he has been out longer than i expected. he wasn't really getting that much of a push though. i remember he was jobbing to batista but putting on good matches though. i know at mania he and chavo teamed to take on carlito and flair. that was the last match i remember with him.

Well unlike most, I think Gregorry Helms has endless potential, the guy is one of the better cruisers on Smackdown, and No the cruiser belt wont come back the spot has been filled by the Dumb Blon..... I mean the Divas Division, From what i want to see is Smackdown come back with more faces, If helms is pushed properly Shelton may get a contender coming for the United States Championship, now that would be a hell of a match!!!

For those who saw SmackDown you will have noticed he actually had two short video segments throughout the show. The first one after Shelton lost where he mentioned that "The the price of gold has just gone down" and the second one was after the Cabana I think where he mocked Hawkins and Ryders names.

Wonder where they could be going with this?

i don't know but he called himself hurricane helms. so he seems to be obviously a face now. im thinking some sort of news reporter type thing which is what he did while he was the hurricane too BTW. it'l be good to see him back as a face though since its been so long.

I'm a big Gregory Helms fan. Any time a cruiserweight can control most of the match against a heavyweight (Helms vs Batista), and make it look credible, shows the talent this guy has.

Doubt it to be honest, I reckon he will still play the heel he did before getting injured not to mention the fact that the Hurrigear wasn't at all visible which would pretty much rule out a face return. I could be wrong, but I hope i'm not.
