Big Mets Fan Curt Hawkins Wins Tag Team Championship at WrestleMania

Big Mets Fan Curt Hawkins Wins Tag Team Championship at WrestleMania

Yesterday I sat in MetLife Stadium for seven hours, after tailgating for five hours, for World Wrestling Entertainment’s biggest show of the year, WrestleMania. WrestleMania is always the coolest event because it’s really the only time of the year that wrestling breaks out into the public eye beyond real wrestling fans. It is WWE’s World Series in just one night. There were 16 matches on the card, so that made for a pretty wild and crazy day.

Why am I writing about wrestling on The 7 Line’s blog? Notable Mets fan and big time T7L supporter Brian Myers, also known as WWE superstar Curt Hawkins, and his tag team partner Zack Ryder defeated The Revival to win the RAW Tag Team Championship in front of a hometown crowd!

Hawkins is from Glen Cove, New York and grew up a diehard Mets fan. He transitioned that love into pro wrestling where a bunch of his ring gear dons blue and orange for his team. He is a massive supporter of The 7 Line as you can see in almost any video or picture outside of the ring. He's typically rocking a T7L snapback.

I was at the home opener this past Thursday sitting with The 7 Line Army like I do every year. After I went to go get some food and beer I came back to my seat and just a couple seats to my right was Hawkins taking in the game with T7LA. WrestleMania week can be absolutely insane for WWE superstars, but Hawkins made it a priority to not only take in the home opener, but take it in with The 7 Line. We chatted some during the game about the Mets, and he’s an awesome guy who is a diehard like all of us. He was wearing his snapback, a black Piazza jersey, and cheered along with everyone.

Big congratulations to Hawkins and Ryder on accomplishing a lifetime goal of walking out of WrestleMania with a championship! Not unlike his favorite baseball team seemingly does at times, Hawkins had a pretty lengthy losing streak on WWE programming.

Before this he lost 269 matches in a row but it was all worth it because he was able to get the pin, and not only end his streak, but walk out of MetLife Stadium with a championship and a memory for a lifetime!

2019 is the year of blue and orange. First Hawkins at WrestleMania and hopefully next the Mets in the World Series! LGM!

Today will feel weird for many of us who have Opening Day traditions at the ballpark. It sucks. There’s no way to sugarcoat it. We’re also 4 months into this COVID world. I think we’re all accustomed to hanging at home by now.
