“Throughout my career, any time I’ve been a part of a big reaction like that, when you watch it back it’s crazy. It almost doesn’t even do it justice. When you’re there live, it’s way different than when you watch it on television. To me, it was even more deafening. It’s pretty cool, unexpected. I knew it would be an interesting segment for everyone to be a part of, but I think it exceeded expectations.”
“I really have embraced it. I think that’s what’s made it work the way it has,” Hawkins said. “[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,” Hawkins continued. “Now I feel like when I’m out there people genuinely care if I win or lose or not, you know?”
On what keeps him pushing forward in WWE despite the losing streak?:
“I feel like me having such a good attitude and embracing this whole thing has really just turned it into something really special, and just every day that I get to wrestle is a great day for me.”
