Not every post this month will be about the scary aspects of Halloween.  What kid didn't want to be a superhero on October 31st?  For Shane Helms and Matt Anoa'i it became a daily occurrence in the WWE.

Helms was wrestling as "The Hurricane" when he took Anoa'i's character Rosey under his wing.  Hurricane was an established hero already, having held the tag team titles with the mighty Kane.  Helms called Rosey his Super Hero In Training.  Together the duo went on to capture the tag team titles too.  Not only did they win the gold, they also had Stacy Kiebler as a valet briefly.  She even got in on the hero gimmick, donning a mask of her own and calling herself Super Stacy.

I found the whole hero gimmick to be very entertaining.  Helms embraced what could have been a lame character and storyline and ran with it in those early days of the Hurricane.  Adding someone like Rosey to the mix was a smart move, despite their obvious size and wrestling differences I thought they worked well as a team.  At one point too, Molly Holly supported Hurricane as Mighty Molly.
