    Does any of the Gerweck team have New Japan Pro Wrestling World (This is NJPW’s streaming service for 999 yen a month) and if so, what is the team’s thought on New Japan Pro Wrestling World compared to the 9.99 WWE Network?

    It would be interesting if WWE and NJPW did a cross promotion supershow nowadays not just because of the possible matches but also because WWE could air it on the WWE Network and NPJW could air it on New Japan Pro Wrestling World at the same time for a cross promotional simulcast. (Shame that would never happen nowadays.)

    Still there is there is one show that should be on both but I know isn’t on WWE Network (Is the show even on New Japan Pro Wrestling World? ) and that is Wrestling Summit from 13th April 1990 as it was a WWE, NJPW and AJPW supershow)

    Hawkins has Matt Hardy Version 1 gimmick.

    Remember the “Most disappointing release by WWE on Thursday?” poll?

    “Drew McIntyre (31%, 343 Votes)
    Evan Bourne (18%, 202 Votes)
    Curt Hawkins (17%, 187 Votes)
    Theodore Long (10%, 117 Votes)
    Aksana (9%, 103 Votes)
    Brodus Clay (7%, 74 Votes)
    JTG (5%, 54 Votes)
    Yoshi Tatsu (1%, 14 Votes)
    Camacho (1%, 14 Votes)
    Jinder Mahal (1%, 7 Votes)

    Total Voters: 1,115”

    Hawkins came 3rd in that poll ahead of Teddy Long, Aksana, Brodus Clay (Tyrus), JTG (whom was part of Cryme Tyme that was part WWE’s hotest free agents), Yoshi Tatsu, Camacho and Jinder Mahal. The only people that beat him in that poll were Drew McIntrye (Drew Galloway) and Evan Bourne.

    If that poll showed anything it was that there are Hawkins fans that were disappointed with his release back in 2014.
