An actual Shining Wizard consists of stepping off the opponent's raised knee with one foot, and the deliverer swings the other leg and strikes the opponent's head with either the side of the knee or shin.

* GenreSavvy: How he manipulated the TNA X-Division Championship. He came out and put himself over as the greatest Cruiserweight Champion of all time while challenging X-Division Champion Tigre Uno to a match, telling him to [[TrashTalk get ready to lose his title next week]], which got Tigre to accept the challenge as well as left everyone including Tigre expecting (and preparing for) a match with Helms. The following week, he came out for the match sporting a bright green leather jacket…as part of an ensemble of street clothes, and said he wasn't the challenger, instead introducing former OMEGA pupil Trevor Lee. Lee beat Tigre for the title.
