In order to push him higher up the ladder, WWE will eventually be required to take the United States Heavyweight Championship off of Rusev. However, people backstage do not want to see John Cena picking up the strap because it would seem like a demotion for his character. An idea being tossed around backstage is to have Cena helping another wrestler, such as Jack Swagger or Curtis Axel, win the belt from the Russian sympathizer.

In case you have not been paying attention to his segments, Curtis Axel has a new shirt made, and it says "Axelmania" on the front. Word going around is that it is something that he came up with on his own. He even produced the shirts himself. The belief is that WWE is giving him some creative control over his character. Some are even saying that he created the gimmick of complaining about the Royal Rumble and Wrestlemania.
