Curt Hawkins On Rey Mysterio Leaving WWE, Training Under Bill DeMott, Zack Ryder, HOH

- Former WWE Superstar Brian Myers (Curt Hawkins) spoke with Alex Obert of the Journey of a Frontman website at Tommy Dreamer's House of Hardcore VIII event last weekend. The full interview is available at this link. Below are highlights:


What he took out of House of Hardcore 8:

Probably the most fun and most unpredictable good time that any wrestling fan could ever have at a show. I have a blast doing this because I love it. It's my job and all that, but sometimes these shows are so fun and exciting, I almost wish I could go back in time and somehow be sixteen and go to these shows. It reminds me of how much fun ECW was when I went to the shows live as a kid.

Rey Mysterio leaving WWE, appearing at HOH:

Rey Mysterio is hands down the greatest luchador of all time. If you want to dispute that, tweet me. I don't think anyone else is comparable. He's the most successful, he's the most talented, he is an absolutely special performer. I think it's a huge loss for WWE and a huge gain for all of us wrestlers that get to be around him and have him on our shows and learn from him and work with him. It's just a win.


The Bill DeMott controversy:

I trained under Bill and he is what he is. He's a drill sergeant and he's tough, it takes a lot out of you. I wasn't there for all the new allegations, so I'm not too sure what happened.

Zack Ryder being in the Royal Rumble:

I hope the world of him, I'm always pushing for him. He deserves it. He's a great guy. I don't think we'd be anywhere without each other. We were very fortunate to find each other and go through this business together. I'm thrilled to see him and I'm glad to see he got the reaction that he got. I always hope for the best.
