• Curt Hawkins Comments On Fans Caring For Him Because Of His Losing Streak

During a recent interview with ESPN, RAW wrestler Curt Hawkins commented on his losing streak, WWE releasing him in 2014 and more.

Below are the highlights:

On his losing streak:

“I really have embraced it. I think that’s what’s made it work the way it has. At Live Events, we have a little more creative freedom and I do some more fun things. I’ve done a lot of fun things, just laying down on my back to sucker guys in for things, and moments like that that I feel like the crowd can get into and I get into and it winds up being a lot of fun. The bottom line is that the streak lets fans care about me winning or losing, whereas before when I was just Curt Hawkins and there was no streak, they didn’t care as much. Now I feel like when I’m out there people genuinely care if I win or lose or not, you know?”

On WWE releasing him in 2014:

“I think I proved to myself and everyone else that I was able to do this without the WWE — make a living and travel the world and be successful and stay relevant and things like that. Getting fired was, I always tell people, was one of the best things that probably ever happened to me. It was this unbelievable blessing in disguise. It’s something I feel had to happen, but I didn’t realize at the time that it had to happen.”
