Brian Myers Responds To Feedback After Blasting Vince McMahon

Brian Myers Responds To Feedback After Blasting Vince McMahon
Brian Myers, formerly known as Curt Hawkins in WWE, took to Twitter this evening and defended his controversial comments made during Tuesday's Emergence Night 1 edition of Impact.

As noted, Myers blasted WWE Chairman & CEO Vince McMahon after interrupting an in-ring promo by Willie Mack, which set up Myers vs. Mack for next Tuesday's Emergence Night 2 episode. Details at this link.

This evening and Myers responded to praise and criticism from fans on social media.

"A lot of different opinions on what I said last night on @IMPACTWRESTLING. Good, bad, or indifferent bring it on. I meant what I said. This is an opportunity I've never been giving before and I'm gonna seize it. Now sit back & watch me do it," he wrote.

The tweet includes a graphic from an old RAW interview with WWE Hall of Famers Jim Ross and Triple H. Myers attached a photo under that, showing writer & on-air talent Jimmy Jacobs in JR's seat while he is in Triple H's seat. The graphic is complete with a flat cap photoshopped onto his head like Triple H, and a cowboy hat photoshopped onto Jacobs' head.

Myers returned to Impact in July after being released from WWE in April as a part of the company-wide cuts brought on by COVID-19. His return match was an Open Challenge loss to Impact World Heavyweight Champion Eddie Edwards, but now he's feuding with Willie Mack.
