Brian Myers (aka Curt Hawkins) discussed his release from WWE and if he’s hoping to return while speaking with Chris Van Vliet.
Here is what he had to say:
“I just wasn’t expecting it. I mean, I could be completely honest with you and everybody watching or listening to this. Like, I had just signed the previous spring a five-year contract, I did some time in 2018 as a producer even when I got hurt. And I was just kind of not — I mentally was like, ‘Okay, this is my life,’ you know? I signed this long-term deal, this is where I’m going to be, you know, the seeds have been planted for a career out of the ring with WWE, you know. So I was really cemented. And mentally and in my heart, it was being a part of this WWE family for a long time to come, you know?
“So it was shocking. And I didn’t expect them to let go of so many people in the middle of this pandemic when — I mean, even to right now, no other wrestling company has done so. But somehow the most powerful one in the world did, it’s a little head-scratching? You know, I don’t make those decisions. But it is what it is.”
