Curtis Axel released by WWE

The son of Mr. Perfect is the latest in a long list of WWE Superstars to lose their jobs.

Joe Hennig, known to WWE fans as Curtis Axel, is the latest Superstar to be released by the promotion.

Axel is the son of WWE Hall of Famer “Mr. Perfect” Curt Hennig, and grandson of wrestling legend Larry “The Axe” Hennig. He joined WWE in 2007 as a member of the developmental Florida Championship Wrestling, before appearing on Raw as a member of CM Punk’s New Nexus stable. In his time with WWE, he has held the Intercontinental Championship once and the Tag Team Championships twice, as a member of the New Nexus with David Otunga and as a member of the B-Team with Bo Dallas.

This is the latest in a large list of releases by WWE since the COVID-19 pandemic. Over two dozen Superstars have now been released, and many producers and backstage agents have been placed on furlough.
