NewsDay has an interview with Curt Hawkins discussing this Monday's RAW from Long Island. During the interview, Hawkins discussed WWE nixing his animated YouTube series, "MidCard Mafia," which he created with Tyler Reks last year.

"It was within the same mold at Zack [Ryder]," said Hawkins. "You can't just duplicate it. That's not going to work. We brainstormed a different idea. Tyler is very talented with computer animation. I kind of wrote and edited it. We just crossed the line a little bit too much. In a way it worked because we were at the bottom of the totem pole. Even if we brought in a negative light, we brought a light, to some degree."
