Bret Hart appreciation night this Monday: "The WWE APP will come in handy Monday night when the Bret Hart Appreciation Day Ceremony will air after RAW from Calgary. I hope all goes well as I have a deep appreciation for @BretHart contributions to our business and respect him greatly as a man and consider the Hitman valued friend."
Appearing for Shawn Michaels appreciation night last Friday: "Enjoyed traveling to Salt Lake City Friday for HBK Appreciation Night. It was my first non, televised WWE appearance in years. Hopefully, I get to make more in the future."
Curtis Axel being paired with Paul Heyman: "It's amazing the feedback that I have received on Curtis Axel since he aligned himself with Paul Heyman last Monday night on Raw. The feedback as ran the gambit of skepticism, cynicism, to outright joy. All I know is that the young man has been working very hard, he steered the course and never gave up on his dream to become a star in WWE just as his father, Mr. Perfect, did years ago. Old school fans also remember that Larry "The Ax" Hennig was a huge star in the AWA for years as well. I know this...Curtis Axel will do all that he can to elevate to the next level and at the end of the day that's all a talent can do. Even if that means working through creative plans that some fans don't like. Curtis is a big, athletic kid who is tough and who has been aligned with Paul Heyman who can be a tremendous asset to the Perfect son. @HeymanHustle has a skill set that is a lost art in today's genre.
"Curtis Axel's match quality down in NXT turned heads and helped facilitate the young man's current status.
"I suggest giving this new, paring of Axel & Heyman a chance before all the fortune tellers and wresstling savants immerse us with what's going to happen in the future."
