Dango also worked several TV matches for the promotion. He appeared on the post-Hard to Kill TV tapings in January first taking on Steve Maclin in singles action before teaming with Gisele Shaw against IMPACT World Champion Josh Alexander and Knockouts Champion Mickie James.

The report didn’t reveal any further details on Dango’s contract. It also states that former Knockouts Champion Tasha Steelz requested and was granted time off. Steelz was last seen on IMPACT in January in a match where she teamed with Bully Ray, and Savannah Evans in a losing effort against Frankie Kazarian, Jordynne Grace and Mickie James.

The real-life Curtis Jonathan Hussey spent fifteen years with WWE, being assigned to WWE’s then-developmental territory Deep South Wrestling in 2006. He debuted on the main roster in 2013 as a ballroom dancer, Fandango. His biggest achievement happened when he scored a shocking victory over Chris Jericho at WrestleMania 29. But he found championship success during his partnership with Tyler Breeze. Known as Breezango the duo defeated Fabian Aichner and Marcel Barthel of Imperium to become NXT Tag Team Champions.

The duo were a popular act on SmackDown due to their comedy sketch, The Fashion Files. During the segments, the team would solve crimes against fashion committed by fellow Superstars.

He was let go from WWE in June 2021 and returned to the independent scene where he maintained a busy schedule. He made appearances for GCW, and ICW before joining NWA where he teamed with former Cryme Tyme member JTG as the Dirty Sexy Boys.
