During this week’s episode of Smackdown Live, WWE aired a video promo confirming the return of Curt Hawkins.
Hawkins, a former WWE and TNA tag team champion, has not been in a WWE ring since 2014, when he was on the NXT roster. In his final match with NXT, Hawkins lost to Neville.
Since leaving WWE, Curt has been enjoying a very successful independent run. He has become a popular face on several YouTube series of shows and has held titles in a number of indie promotions.
There’s no official word yet on his exact return date, but it will likely be shortly after SummerSlam.
