- His first match is a Raw main event against HHH, who hasn't wrestled on the show in over three years.
- This has to be one of the best debuts you can ask for
- HHH will more than likely win, but will probably make him look good in the match(why would he just come back for a pointless squash match)
- If your first angle on TV is aligning yourself with Paul Heyman, with a match against HHH who barely wrestles anymore, that has to be in the top 1% of introductions
Of all the people to put over, HHH chooses Curtis Axel? This guy looks an average, generic, ordinary mid-card wrestler. He was like the 10th string in Nexus what the hell? It's great that he wants to bring up young guys, but if your going to have a match why not be in a program with a Wade Barrett, a Cody Rhodes, a Dolph Ziggler, The Shield etc.. Someone who just needs a little umph to get to the next level.
If HHH wins, then that will just further solidify his shovel. I think Axel will win BUT he should have also been made to look like the next big thing when HHH was out there for the promo. Instead he was made to look like a joke. Hopefully this will be rectified.
