Gregory Helms (8908 words)
Helms, as stated on his official website, got the wrestling bug after seeing an independent show in North Carolina, where, at the age of 13, he was allowed to enter the ring after the event and run the ropes.
Helms was noticably upset by this, but there was nothing he could do, as he was still considered the outsider on the Smackdown roster.
Helms later announced on his official website that there were complications after the surgery, as a blood vessel within his nose ruptured, causing him to bleed freely for several hours before the issue could be corrected, fortunately without additional emergency surgery.
