Curtis Axel
While he has shown that he is not a main event level talent, Curtis Axel still has a good amount of job security within WWE, as management feels that he is a solid worker who shows up all the time.

Curtis Axel
Once you get into that WWE dog house, it's pretty hard to get out. Management has sent more messages to Ryback this month.
