He is the grandson of Larry “The Axe” Hennig. He is the son of “Mr. Perfect” Curt Hennig. And now, he joins the most elite group in WWE history. Along with Brock Lesnar and CM Punk, we have a brand new Paul Heyman Guy!
Joe Hennig has been pegged as a hot prospect since he helped induct his father, Mr Perfect Curt Hennig into the WWE Hall of Fame. Although he has toiled as Michael McGillicutty, those in WWE have waited for the moment where this third generation superstar would start his inevitable climb to the top of the ladder.
According to WWE.com:
The rumor bees have been a-buzzing all day about a prospective third client joining Paul Heyman’s unsavory stable, and for once the whispers yielded pay dirt and not simply fool’s gold. With the WWE Universe riled up, the mad scientist himself strutted into Kansas City high off Brock Lesnar’s brutal win over Triple H at Extreme Rules and ready to introduce his latest dangerous ally: Curtis Axel.
Formerly known as Michael McGillicutty, Heyman swore to re-brand the onetime WWE Tag Team Champion in the “perfect” mold of his father Curt Hennig and grandfather, Larry “The Axe” Hennig, and give him an opportunity to carve out his own legend in their honor. The mad scientist was moments into his grand unveiling when Triple H crashed the party, a dire sign for the ECW founder if there ever was one. Before The King of Kings could put hands on his longtime rival, though, Axel got in Triple H’s face and caught a twofold response: A stiff right hand, and a challenge from The Game to a match later in the night.
