In a rather interesting bit of note, Curtis Axel has been on quite the losing streak. He has not had a televised victory since the beginning of November. It took place during a match against the recently released Justin Gabriel on the Main Event. He is still being utilized on a regular basis, both on television and at live events because WWE loves that he is a solid veteran performer who always shows up for work and puts on decent matches consistently.

Now that word has spread about his release from the company, a lot of wrestling fans have been wondering what led to Justin Gabriel leaving WWE. While he has yet to make a public statement in regards to the matter, the belief is that he simply wanted more freedom as a wrestler. Management rarely used him on television, and he was never featured in a prominent role over the last year. Gabriel was essentially just a filler performer.
