Curt Hawkins' losing streak could come to an end on Sunday.
It has been three years since former WWE Tag Team Champion Curt Hawkins last won a match in WWE. Last year, Hawkins joined the 'notsam Wrestling Podcast' and shared that his current losing streak which is currently sitting at 0-269 has been talked about being ended but Hawkins has gone up to WWE creative and told them not to end his streak.
(Here's an except from that podcast appearance):
“What really sparked it all was… there was some kind of online article or something that said, ‘Hey, Curt Hawkins just lost his 100th match in a row’. Where, I think like... and I’m not throwing a shot out there but I think most of my colleagues if they saw that about themselves they’d be like, ‘Man, that's bulls**t’ and be upset about it." Hawkins said. "A bunch of people tweeted me this information and I was like, ‘Oh my God, that’s true, yes. Lets talk about it.'"He continued, “I didn’t know what it could become, but I knew like why not embrace it and acknowlege it. There’s been times since that article where I was supposed to… I remember one time I was supposed to beat Heath Slater on Main Event and I went, ‘Oh, no’. I said ‘no, no, please no, this could be something.' There’s no sense in ending it on Main Event against Slater.”Hawkins said. “I literally went to the head writer of RAW and said, ‘Please no, I can’t [lose my streak]’ and they were cool about it in the first place because it was more like, ‘Hey, good job. You get to win one tonight’ and I’m like oh God no, you don’t understand, and I remember that particular night, I was like, ‘Can I just run something by you… You guys [creative writers] are all aware of the streak?’ They say yeah and I go, ‘Does Vince know about it?’ They’re like, ‘Probably not’ - well can you please just tell him before he makes a decision tonight - I got out of it.”
This Sunday at WrestleMania, Curt Hawkins will have the opportunity to end that losing streak as he and Zack Ryder challenge The Revival for the RAW Tag Team Championships. Hawkins spoke with 'Newsday' recently to promote their match and explained that he looks forward to wrestling now because people care to see if he wins or loses because of the streak.
“I look forward to wrestling so much more now, because when I go out there people truly care whether I win or lose,” Hawkins says. “Some of the most popular guys on the roster can’t say that.”
