Hurricane made a jubilant, albeit short, return to WWE in the Royal Rumble match

What's the story?

While his return at the Royal Rumble may have been trumped by what happened to close out the pay-per-view, Hurricane's cameo in the Men's Royal Rumble Match saw the WWE Universe erupt.

Well, the former Champion has hinted at a possible return to WWE - to try to claim back the new-look Cruiserweight Title.

In case you didn’t know...

Hurricane spent almost ten years with WWE, as well as some time in WCW and TNA, and his return at this year's Royal Rumble was met with an unreal pop.

The former two-time Cruiserweight Champion also won the European Championship, Hardcore Championship, and the Tag Team Championships in WWE. Many thought The Hurricane may be due to return to WWE as the 205 Live general manager, but that role went to Drake Maverick instead.

The heart of the matter

Hurricane Helms took to social media to hint that he may well return to WWE and head over to the purple brand to contest for the Cruiserweight Championship.

The former Cruiserweight Champion responded to Ariya Daivari's tweet about his upcoming round one match in the Cruiserweight Championship Tournament on 205 Live tonight.

What’s next?

While speaking about his appearance in the Royal Rumble, the Hurricane has previously confirmed that he's pretty busy in 2018.

"I’m booked solid. I’ve already got 43 dates in 2018 that I’ve agreed with various companies all over the world, so this is a pretty exciting time."

But Helms has previously said that, while his appearance at the Royal Rumble would be a great ending to his WWE career, he thinks he will be back.

"If that was my last time in a WWE ring, and I don’t think it will be, to have probably the loudest pop of my career, what a way to come full circle."

Author’s take

While 205 Live has been really incredible recently, there's absolutely no doubt that Hurricane would be an amazing addition. In fact, I think he'd work in any brand with his "larger than life" character.

This may all be hot air, but I'd love to see Helms back in some role with WWE. He's a brilliant wrestling mind who can still go in the ring. His experience could prove invaluable, particularly in helping some of the younger talent to solidify their roles in WWE.
