Speaking of Hawkins, the former Major brother is in danger of being released, just like his buddy, Reks.
These two guys have been a tag team for awhile, and they have been used primarily to job to other teams like Air Boom and The Usos.
Hawkins was at one point part of La Familia with Ryder, Edge, Chave and Vickie, and he was center stage on SmackDown every week.
Once he and Ryder split, he tried his hand at singles competition but found little success. His biggest problem is a lack of a character.
"Who is Curt Hawkins?" "He is just some guy in WWE." This is probably how any discussion of his role in WWE takes place amongst fans.
We know that Ryder is a Long Island party animal, CM Punk is the anti-establishment spokesperson and Dolph Ziggler is the showoff.
Each guy has a gimmick of sorts; Hawkins is just a wrestler. He needs to come up with a way to stand out against the back drop of WWE.
Many of WWE's top guys got started with a really crappy gimmick that did nothing more than get them noticed by fans, then they evolved and moved past it.
Look at Ziggler as a cheerleader, Triple H as the Connecticut blue blood and Kane as Isaac Yenkem. These guys had awful gimmicks that allowed WWE to see what they had to offer beyond the character.
Eventually, these guys got better on the mic and in the ring and it allowed them to move up the ladder. Hawkins needs a gimmick, plain and simple. If he does not stand out, then he may get booted out.
He has the potential, now he just needs an idea.
