TNA Knockout Velvet Sky is putting together a charity campaign for Gregory Shane Helms after the former WWE Superstar and his girlfriend Karen were involved in a serious motorcycle accident Thursday night. Helms remains hospitalized after suffering a broken leg and ankle, as well as other injuries. He is therefore unable to wrestle, which was his only source of income.

According to her official website, Talia-Madison.net, she is accepting donations on Helms’ behalf to help pay for his outstanding medical and surgery bills, as well as everyday expenses. She asks that people donate what they can via PayPal to Talia_Goodies@yahoo.com.

Velvet Sky, who said she would never go on Twitter because she thought it was ‘stupid’, launched an account today via twitter.com/VelVelHoller to help spread the word on her charity campaign. This account has been confirmed by her official website as well as former tag team partner April Hunter.

She wrote, “I know I said I would never get on Twitter but I want to use it in a positive way to help spread the word about donations for Helms.”

It’s been speculated that Helms has been unable to gain employment with TNA Wrestling following his release from WWE last year because Velvet Sky vowed she would quit the promotion if he was brought in. The two were involved in a relationship for several years, and their break-up in 2009 was said to have been tumultuous.

    lol perfectly said elvisD!! His only time in the spotlight really was when the Rock for some ungodly reason jobbed to him, but during that time all you had to do to make someone loved or hated was put them with the Rock. The Hurricane and Too Cool are the best examples for using the Rock to get over. Once featured with Rock, both acts were hot for a while just because of that rub. Hell Mr. Helms couldn’t even get over as himself, the only time anyone even cared about him was when he played the superhero roles that little kids gobble up.

    Wait! Helms gets drunk, gets in a wreck and wants some help? WHAT UP WIT THAT? dude i’m sorry for what happened, that sucks, but you made your bed, now you have to lie in it, maybe you should call or tweet HBK for a prayer and maybe rethink you purpose in life and maybe some people would actually care about you, till then keep doing what you are good at, sitting behind a computer and talking trash just to make a splash in the wrestling world, I forgot about you till now and now that I remember who you are, I wanna forget again, till next time HAVE A DRINK ON ME PUTO!!!

    @Johnny Fever—Right on, brotha!

    Ray, since you was so kind as to correct my grammatical error, let me return the favor. “you all hate this guy for talking shit about HBK and for all you know he may have good reason too.” Should have been to, not too. Also, “You guys a fuckin morons to say he deserves this.” It should be are not a. I could go on and on as the few sentences that you were able to string together would make your 8th grade English teacher want to pull his/her hair out. Now let me clarify something. I never one time stated that I was sitting here hoping and praying for something bad to happen to Helms, because I wouldn’t wish harm on my worst enemy. I was simply stating that I would in no way, shape or form donate money to help this man. He had no right to go out and bash Shawn Michaels, and for the record Shawn never once took the time to sink to Helms level and comment on the situation. It is sad what happened to Helms, and I never once wished it upon him, but he did put bad out in the universe, and that must’ve been the universes way of working everything out.

    if he has no money left over from his WWE days then he is a idiot

  • Ray

    Its actually called karma, not kharma. I find it funny how you all hate this guy for talking shit about HBK and for all you know he may have good reason too. But thinking someone deserves these types of injuries is stupid. And based upon you guys believes, it should be perfectly ok if you get seriously injuried with life threatening injuries, because you guys talk shit about this guy. You guys are hypocrites. It doesn’t matter how you feel about someone who drinks or has their own demons. You guys a fuckin morons to say he deserves this. As a firefighter/paramedic, I have to scrape these people off the ground, cut open their throats and breathe down a tube that inserted into their neck, and those are the lucky ones. Hopefully you guys are really half decent people in real life, because I bet most of you all are to much of a pussy to be this cold offline. just like “Fat” Hardy. Dude is in better shape then 99% of you guys.

    It’s called Kharma, and not I’m not talking about Awesome Kong. Helms was a joke as a wrestler, and his only claim to fame was his brief brush with the Rock and then him bashing a Godly man known as Michael Hickenbottom, aka The Heartbreak Kid Shawn Michaels. Helms got released and did nothing but piss and moan and attack a man that is trying to spread faith, and a man that has done nothing but help put young talent over since returning. After all the crap you talked about Mr. Hickenbottom, I would not help you if I had all the money in the world Helms. Kharmas a bitch, and it always catches up with you!

  • Dirt Devil

    So dont piss and moan about someone asking for money….give what you can to who you see fit and leave it alone.

    Not sticking up for Helms…always thought he sucked as a wrestler, but he is not the one asking for money…she is. Why? Who knows, but if you dont think its a good cause…dont give. Its America, last I checked and you can spend your money as you see fit.

    My money has gone and I will continue to give to those in this country that have faced natural disaster. If you want a good charity that more of your money goes to the cause, give to the Salvation Army.

  • Trixie

    Ok so Helms’ only source of income is from wrestling and he is unable to wrestle because of doctor bills because of an accident. He makes, or made, more money than probably most of his fans, and now he’s asking (or velvet on his behalf or whatever) to give him money to pay for bills, expenses, etc.

    The entire popluation of Japan was affected by an earthquake and tsunami, most being left without anything.

    People across the South especially in Alabama were hit with tornadoes that killed people and destroyed their lives.

    HMMM, who should I give my non-existant money to???

    I mean come on.

  • venom

    I agree with Rucdogg. These wrestlers make more money than us. Helms was with WWE for a good amount of time. Sorry Helms, sell your big house and move into a smaller one. I remember when that bum Konnan got hurt and he was begging fans for money. Stop buying so much drugs.

  • Satan

    Meanwhile places like Japan are still suffering.

  • Rucdogg

    Doesnt sound like she hates him. Sounds crazy asking the fans who pay money to go see these guys and give them paychecks to now ask them to pay his doctor bills tho. I know helms isnt rich by any means but lets be honest for at least 10 years he was making well above what the avg american makes, why cant he pay his own bills?
