Curt Hawkins was released from WWE back in April as a cost-cutting measure as WWE prepared for life at The Performance Center as part of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Hawkins has since moved on to IMPACT Wrestling after his non-compete clause came to an end and is now known as Brian Myers in the company once known as TNA.
Following this week’s show, the company released a video where Curt Hawkins hijacked Willie Mack’s interview and cut a promo where he sent a direct shot at Vince McMahon claiming that he was fired while his wife was six month’s pregnant and that the major decisions in the business were being made by an out of touch 70-year-old man.
“You’ve known me a while. Haven’t I always played by the rules? Done everything I’ve been told? Listen to the veterans? Well, where did it get me in this business? Fired! With a wife that’s 6 months pregnant sitting at home.”
“I’m so sick of being referred to as somebody’s ‘good hand’. It disgusts me that major decisions in this business are being made by some out of touch 70-year-old man in some goofy production meeting! Not anymore. I’m taking my career and this business into my hands. You and all of Impact Wrestling have been put on warning. I am the most professional wrestler, Brian Myers.”
