• WCW Veteran Told Curtis Axel (Son Of Mr. Perfect) That He Had No Charisma
On a recent episode of his ‘Keepin It 100’ podcast, Old School WCW Veteran Konnan was asked about his real-life-heat with the son of the legendary ‘Mr. Perfect’ Curt Hennig, Curtis Axel (fka Michael McGillicutty).
Here’s what Konnan said about the situation with Axel:
“What happened was when I was doing MLW, he was like in a tag team with somebody. I forgot who it was. And he (Curtis Axel) had some other name. So, I had said that he had no charisma, which he didn’t.
And I didn’t see much of his dad’s talent in him, which I didn’t, and I wasn’t wrong because where is he right now? And I think I might have tweeted it out or something so of course he was mad.”
Between 1997 and 2000, Konnan and Curtis’ father Curt Hennig wrestled for the same promotion, Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling.
