Curtis Axel on his original Michael McGillicutty name in WWE

The Flagship in Norfolk is featuring an interview with WWE star and current Intercontinental Champion Curtis Axel where he talks about his former name, Michael McGillicutty.

Axel added, "At first, they (WWE) didn’t want to bring up where I came from – which they have totally 180’d on. If I incorporate moves that my father and grandfather did, it’s to pay homage to them – to my family. Family is number one and will always be number one to me. Even as Michael McGillicutty – I still wrestled as myself. I think it was a good thing – even though that name sucked. I hated being Michael McGillicutty and having to tell people my name. It was embarrassing. Even signing that five-syllable name is ridiculous. I always wanted to be “me” in the long run."
