Curtis Axel's Reevaluation (2015)

His name is Curtis Axel and Cageside Seats readers have reported back on what they love and loathe about the former Intercontinental Champion. Here's the full evaluation.

What you loved:

  1. In-Ring - Still no problems inside of the ring, great worker, rarely ever botches. Easily his most loved thing by you guys.
  2. NXT Trip - Recently, he's gone back to NXT to hopefully get "Tyson Kidd'd".
  3. Trainer - Got a chance to train with both Brock Lesnar and The Rock as they made their respective comebacks. Possible future career for Axel?
  4. Gifs - Boom!

Best comments comes via BrassCitySaint:

"Axel is in NXT where he can at least try to rebuild."


What you loathed:

  1. Mic - No improvement in this area, is it possible he's become worse on the stick?
  2. RybAxel - Did basically nothing in the tag division, which is pretty amazing with how much the title changes hands.
  3. Bad Year - From his strong initial push, in 2014 he was demoted to the tag division, and then jobber status in singles' competition.
  4. Failed Heyman Guy - Although this was primarily in 2013, he (along with Ryback and Cesaro) just never benefited from the Heyman bump.
  5. Gimmick - What exactly is his gimmick? He's a heel, that laughs/smiles a lot, and...?

Best comment comes via Andrew Gummo:

"Black hole of charisma, no speaking skills whatsoever, RybAxel, failed Heyman Guy, and disappeared in 2014."

On to the poll! With 178 votes, Curtis Axel's average score 2.3, last year he received a 2.2.

Thanks, Cagesiders! Tomorrow's pick is sweet.

Until then!
