Backstory On Brian Meyers’ Tweet To Vince McMahon Ahead Of Impact Debut

384

As CJ reported earlier here at WrestlingNews.com, Brian Meyers, formally known as Curt Hawkins in WWE, is heading to Impact Wrestling.

A vignette was included on this week’s episode of Impact to promote his pending debut. This will be his second stint in the company after competing in the TNA vs. GFW storyline in 2015. During the airing of Impact, Meyers tweeted to Vince McMahon.

“Well, @VinceMcMahon,” Myers wrote. “I’m sorry, I love you. *superkick @IMPACTWRESTLING Let’s. Go.”

This appears to be in reference to the famous spot at WrestleMania 24 in Ric Flair’s retirement match against Shawn Michaels. It was there where HBK lined Flair up for his Sweet Chin Music superkick and said, “I’m sorry. I love you.” He delivered the finisher and pinned Flair, effectively ending his in-ring career with WWE.

Myers was released from WWE in April as part of mass roster cuts in response due to the difficult economic conditions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. His 90-day non-compete clause has expired, which is what made him available to Impact Wrestling. He worked for WWE from 2006 to 2014, returning in 2016, only to get cut again in 2020.
