Shane Helms Returning To WWE In Producer Role, Start Date Revealed For Abyss and Sonjay Dutt
Shane Helms will return to WWE as a backstage producer. He has been working with ROH since last June, but will join Abyss and Sonjay Dutt as new producer hires. Helms will start immediately while Abyss and Dutt are expected to start by mid-February.
Last week during a media call, Triple H said that WWE is trying to increase the amount of talent they hire in backstage roles, and that he was aware of Abyss and Dutt beforehand.
He said: “We’re always on the lookout for talented people that can contribute to the product and to the WWE as a whole. It doesn’t matter where they’re from, the quality people that are talented, that have a passion for this and want it to go to the next level and succeed, I’m always looking forward to those people. Sonjay coming in here, Abyss coming in here [in] behind the scenes roles, we’re going to see where that best fit is for them. I’ve heard of them, I know of them. So many people speak highly of them and their jobs over the years, from a talent standpoint and other standpoint, so, I’m looking forward to working with them and seeing where they best fit through all of this, as we all are. Everybody here will determine where they fit, what they want to do, and how they can help contribute in the best way to the product going forward.“
