Back on April 15, WWE released 35 Superstars including Rusev, Cain Velasquez, Luke Gallows, Karl Anderson, and Curt Hawkins. Nine producers were also furloughed after the wrestling behemoth announced they would be making cutbacks because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Curt Hawkins (Brian Myers) enjoyed a particularly unique run in WWE as he had the longest losing streak in the company's history at 269 matches, which only ended after he and Zack Ryder won the Raw Tag Team Championships at WrestleMania 35.
Now, Myers is looking forward to the next chapter of his wrestling career and said he would "love" to wrestle in All Elite Wrestling during a recent interview with Comicbook.com.
The former Edgehead said: "I mean obviously I'd love to (work for AEW). I haven't missed an episode. I've watched everything from day one. I have a ridiculous amount of friends involved in that company so I'm always rooting for them. I'm rooting for, what their impact on the business is as a whole. They've made it better for everybody. So I would never say never to anything.
"I've even enjoyed their no-fan presentation a lot better than WWE. I think they're doing the best with that scenario. There's so much opportunity once the world starts to turn back. I see the light at the end of this coronavirus tunnel here and I think things are going to normalise to the new normal. And prior to this, wrestling was on fire man, there was just so much opportunity everywhere."
