Former WWE Superstar Bryan Myers, better known as Curt Hawkins in WWE revealed Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon thought he and Matt Cardona (Zack Ryder in WWE) were brothers when they first joined the company.
Initially, WWE presented the tag team as brothers, going by Brian Majors (Myers) and Brett Majors (Cardona), they would join Edge’s "La Familia" stable during that time.
Vince forced them to change their names when he was told they were not actually related in real life.
Here is what Myers told K&S WrestleFest:
“We wanted to just join Edge and then what I’ve been told that I didn’t realize at the time is that Vince [McMahon] thought we were shoot brothers and then when it all came up that we already joined Edge, he goes, ‘What? They’re not brothers?’ Like that’s f**king stupid and that’s when he said come up with new names and we came up with Curt Hawkins and Zack Ryder. So that was never part of our plan. It just kind of fell into our lap.”
