Brian Myers will be remaining at Impact Wrestling for at least another year based on a recent interview he did talking about how happy he is to be there.
The man formerly known as Curt Hawkins is thriving in Impact Wrestling and plans to be there for at least one more year after signing a recent contract extension.
During his WWE run as Curt Hawkins, Myers started with the company in 2006 in his early 20s and was released in 2014. Myers returned to WWE for another run from 2016 to 2020. As Curt Hawkins, he was a two-time Tag Team Champion along with his best friend Zack Ryder (Matt Cardona).
Following his WWE release, Hawkins joined Impact Wrestling in 2020 while wrestling under his real name Brian Myers. In Impact, Myers is a former Digital Media Champion and also a former Tag Team Champion as well. Brian Myers remains aligned with Cardona as the Major Players in Impact Wrestling.
The 37-year-old Myers re-signed with Impact Wrestling on a deal that will run through 2023. He talked to Sports Illustrated about staying with Impact.
“This was an easy decision for me. It’s a place where my talent is going to get the most opportunity. That’s what is important to me.”
“I think what we do in the ring is so precious. Father Time is eventually going to get us all, but I don’t want to stop doing what I’m doing until I have to. This is very important to me.”
While speaking about his past in WWE, Myers said he had no regrets.
“I don’t have any regrets and I don’t hold any grudges. You’ve got to have thick skin in this business. If I were the best hitter on the New York Mets, even if the manager hated me, I’d still be in the lineup every single day. Wrestling is different. It has a lot of politics.”
“For whatever reason, I was never the chosen one in WWE. I was the guy who was there to make other people look great, and I took a lot of pride in that. All those opportunities led me to where I am now.”
As for the future, Brian Myers has his eyes set on the Impact Wrestling World Championship.
“Hands down, my goal is to become the Impact Wrestling world heavyweight champion. I’ve been an absolute workhorse for Impact Wrestling, and I truly believe this is my time.”
“I have my eyes set on Josh Alexander. We’ve been wrestling for years, but this is our chance to do it on Impact’s grandest stage. I am ultimately going to be everything Impact wishes he was. I’m the complete package, and I’m going to prove that.”
