Curtis Axel was among the many WWE Superstars and Employees who were part of the company’s massive wave of cuts and releases last month.
Former WWE Superstar Ryback recently talked about Axel’s release from WWE, and stated that feels that Axel was never going to be used right in WWE and would never have reached his full potential.
He goes on to state that he could really add a lot to the AEW roster as Joe Henning.
“Yeah, I sent him a voice message yesterday and I’m sure [I’ll] hopefully hear back from him soon. I’d like to get him on the show, not even talk — just bullsh*t stories, we had a lot of good times. That one I saw that, I was actually recording the show yesterday and I checked my phone after and saw the tweet tagged with stuff with him, and I was like, ‘No, man!’ And then looked and saw he’d been released.”
“In one way, I’m very happy for him. Because I feel like he was never going to be allowed to be himself or to do anything significant there. On the other hand, though, I know he has a wife and kids, and I know them. And it’s — when you have a steady paycheck coming in for years, and then that all of a sudden is not going to be there anymore in this times of uncertainty, it makes me a little bit upset that he got released with like, the other guys like Heath [Slater] that I personally am invested in and know. I just think it is horrible timing with everything, but hopefully all this is easing up.”
“I think — I truly mean this, like with Heath and him, Joe. If he could be Joe Hennig, I think AEW can get some great, great stuff out of him and I think he could add to that roster, in one way or another.”
