— Just to recap – the Carrol County Times has an interview with Curtis Axel, in which he talks about his new name, working hard to get rid of the Michael McGullicutty persona and training with The Rock to get him ready for WrestleMania. He was also asked about how his partnership with Paul Heyman started. He said: “We were talking about it and I brought it up to him, what do you think about this, us being together? Brock’s part-time and CM Punk was hurt at the time and I was like, Paul, WWE needs Paul Heyman on television. So that was my pitch to him. But before that, before I was even with him, he would be at the live events and this Raw and Smackdown TVs and he would come up and give me advice. So I was like, man, if this guy wants to take time out of his busy day and help me out, I would approach him with everything I had and he’d help me out, and then I approached him with this pitch and he liked it. We would talk more about it; I think he might’ve brought it up to the higher-ups in WWE and here we are.”
