Curt Hawkins says the streak makes fans care about him.
Curt Hawkins has lost 200 straight matches in WWE including Mondays' Raw when Constable Baron Corbin interrupted his match against a man named James Harden and caused Hawkins to lose via disqualification. In an interview with ESPN, Hawkins said he and the fans have had fun with the losing streak.
"I really have embraced it. I think that's what's made it work the way it has. 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," said Hawkins. "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?," he continued.
After Corbin cost him the match on Raw, Hawkins swore he would beat Corbin and end the streak which can be seen in the video at the top of this page. Neither wrestler has a match scheduled for Money in the Bank.
