    This could be the final nail in the coffin for axel, there are a lot of guys waiting to take that championship and spot, guys trapped in limbo and waiting for a push.

      if this is a legitimate injury he likely won’t come back as prominent

    I know I’m in the minority here but I really do like Axel. Yes he’s bland and has no mic skills, but he can go in the ring. Huge potential, and with the right gimmick down the line, he’ll do just fine

    • Mike McCarthy

      he needs a gimmick that involves over the top matches, right now he’s pushed as someone who can’t win without Heyman

    Axel has talent and can go in the ring but he has zero mic skills and IMO he should just go under his real name because everyone knows who he is anyway and he is more like his Grandfather than his father in the ring Curt was a true technician in the ring but Joe/Curtis is more rough like “The Axe”

    It just takes 3 secs to drop the title. What’s the injury?
