WWE: Victim in Jericho/Helms Incident Says The Two Were "Play Fighting"!

The woman who took an elbow to the face from WWE star Greg "Hurricane" Helms Wednesday morning claims she has no ill feelings towards the wrestler — because she was merely collateral damage in a "play fight."

The woman, Ashley Storer, tells TMZ the whole thing went down after her group finished boozing at a local Kentucky bar and crammed into the back of a taxi cab.

Storer claims she somehow got stuck sitting in between Jericho and Helms — who began play fighting when things "escalated because we were drunk."

Storer claims that’s when she took an elbow to the cheek — and the cab driver pulled over at a nearby gas station. Helms and Jericho were ultimately arrested for being drunk in public — Storer claims Matt Hardy was completely sober.

Storer also tells us cops blew the situation out of proportion — but admits she may have exacerbated the situation because, "I was crying and drunk and tired from being out all night and I just wanted to leave."
