The sad passing of Jonathan Huber united the wrestling world, which speaks volumes of the man that Huber was. AEW would dedicate an entire episode of Dynamite to his life, while WWE opened Raw with an in-memory of tribute graphic and shared a video package on social media. Many wrestlers also took it upon themselves to pay tribute in their own ways, such as Lance Archer dressing like Luke Harper and Drew McIntyre referencing Huber’s Twitter catchphrase saying, “It’s Monday, you know what that means,” during a Raw promo. The New Day would go as far as to have new ring gear designed for the Royal Rumble. Now his friend and longtime colleague, Curtis Hussey, known as Fandango in WWE, has shown off the tattoo he had inked onto his arm this past weekend.
Brodie and Fandango shared a ring over 30 times between 2013 and 2018, with the majority being tag matches between The Bludgeon Brothers and Breezango (Fandango & Tyler Breeze). They apparently built up a strong bond during this time, and now Hussey will have a permanent reminder of their time working together.
WWE released Fandango three months ago, having been with the company since 2006, where he was initially assigned to developmental territory Deep South Wrestling. He originally went by the name Johnny Curtis and won the fourth season of NXT when it was a competition. His career took off when he was repacked as a ballroom dancer and famously defeated Chris Jericho at WrestleMania 29. However, he wouldn’t reach those heights again and slipped down the card before he went on to form Breezango along with Tyler Breeze. The duo would win the NXT Tag Team Championships in 2020, which would be Fandango’s only title victory in WWE.
