Has anyone ever been as irrelevant for as long as Curt Hawkins and not been released?

Have WWE at least in recent years ever had someone on their roster that's been so irrelevant for so long as Curt Hawkins? Him and Ryder debuted as the Major Brothers in ECW around March 2007, meaning if he somehow survives the winter clear-out and is still employed in March 2013, he'll have been at the company for 6 years. Aside from that tag title run in 2008, he's literally done nothing of any relevance since then. What's more amazing is that he's still only 27. Since 2008 his win/loss ratio on TV must be one of the worst around. I'd like to point out that I do like his work and think he's pretty decent, just amazed that he and even Trent Baretta have been employed for this long.

Scotty Too Hotty and Funaki were both employed much longer than anyone would have thought.

I'd feel pretty damn shitty if I was used less than JTG.

Funaki would probably still be employed today if some idiot in creative hadn't given him that stupidly racist Kung Fu Naki gimmick

Vince McMahon.

Oh SHIT.

Funaki would be the answer, though. He was Yoshi Tatsu before Tatsu was ever even heard of.

They should just put Curt Hawkins & Zack Ryder back together as a tag team. If neither of them are going to get a serious singles push, then just re-pair them, and use Zack's moderate overness to draw interest in the tag division. Ryder & Hawkins can be the centerpieces of the tag division once all the uppercard mash-up teams like Kane/Bryan and Rey/Sin Cara break up.

He trains up and comers as well as keeping up the numbers for house shows. Solid in ring competitor. He'll be kept for a long while yet.
