Curt Hawkins was called back to WWE following the 2016 Brand Split when it was revealed that Shelton Benjamin was out with an injury and ever since the former Tag Team Champion has been on one of the most impressive losing streaks in WWE history.

Hawkins’ record currently stands at 0-219 when it comes to his wins and losses since he returned but the star himself recently appeared on Sam Roberts’ Podcast, which is now entitled NotSamWrestling where he revealed that WWE wanted to end his undefeated streak on Main Event but he refused.

“There have been times where I was having matches – in particular, I had a match on Main Event against Heath Slater that I was supposed to win – but I thought, “Wait, hold it, no, please, no. This could be something. There’s no sense of ending this story on Main Event.”

Hawkins has had a number of matches on Main Event over the past few months but also makes occasional appearances on Raw where the commentary team alludes to the fact that his losing streak is still intact.

As part of the conversation, Hawkins was able to reveal the reaction he gained backstage when he told WWE officials that he didn’t actually want to win a match.

“Who begs to lose matches? I literally did that though where I said that I can’t win matches, and they were cool about it in the first place where they were telling me that I did a good job and that I am going to win a match. But I was like, “No, you don’t understand.”

Hawkins seems to be happy with the storyline he is involved in right now and continues to push for WWE to allow him to lose every match he is part of.
