Curtis Axel return to WWE

Fans that only follow WWE through television have been wondering about the whereabouts of Curtis Axel. The veteran performer is still around. However, he rarely works television matches nowadays. His last appearance on TV took place on Monday Night Raw back in December. Axel lost to Braun Strowman that night. The big man simply needed fodder for his big push. Axel mostly works live events. World Wrestling Entertainment likes that he is very reliable on the road.

Curtis Axel at Wrestlemania 33

Since he is a reliable veteran, Curtis Axel has a lot of supporters backstage in WWE. Management might consider rewarding him with a spot at Wrestlemania 33. Of course, Axel is not going to be in a high profile match or anything like that. However, he could end up as a participant in the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal. That usually takes place on the kickoff show. It is a nice way for World Wrestling Entertainment to give Axel something to do at the pay per view.

Axel is a prime example of someone having job security without the possibility of a big push.
