Hands up those who shed a quiet tear when Curtis Axel was revealed as the newest Paul Heyman guy?
It’s the music – the remixed version of Mr Perfect’s theme – that got me.
I may have my reservations about his new rebrand, although I appreciate the sentiment of paying homage to his father and grandfather, and may still refer to him as “Joe”, like the smarkiest of smarks, but I love that they’re explicitly making his lineage important now – not just with his name, or with the music, but in the ring too (that Perfectplex on this Monday’s RAW!).
I really hope that he has found his niche (pronounced nitch, if you’re Heyman) now, after his bumbling around in NXT since the dissolution of the Nexus. He deserves it.
