Curtis Axel recently spoke about winning the IC Title and more. Here are the highlights…
On Winning the IC Title: "Winning the title was huge for me but also for all my family, my grandpa. It was a very big deal for me. And now, my next goal is to do something my dad never did and is to win the WWE championship."
On The Pressure of Being a Third Generation Star: "It's not really pressure," Axel said. "First of, every time a second or third generation wrestler comes in the WWE, there's always some pressure because of their dad's legacy, but it's not more now than when I first started as Michael McGillicutty. At the time, I had to prove myself. Now, my talent has been recognized, I was able to prove myself so the name doesn't add any pressure. I just do my things and do the best I can."
