Brian Myers (born April 20, 1985) is an American professional wrestler and promoter who is currently signed to IMPACT Wrestling and is a former TNA World Tag Team Champion with Trevor Lee. He is best known for his time in WWE, under the ring name Curt Hawkins.

Myers signed with WWE in 2006 and was assigned to their developmental territories. In 2007, he was called up to the main roster and would eventually win the WWE Tag Team Championship with Zack Ryder. In 2014, he departed from WWE and returned to the independent circuit and worked there until 2016 when he re-signed with WWE. Shortly after his return, he amassed a WWE record 269-match losing streak which ended at WrestleMania 35 when he won the Raw Tag Team Championship with Ryder, almost ten years after they last held any titles as a team.
