Source: SLAM! SportsCurtis Axel spoke with SLAM! Sports to promote next week's WWE live event in Montreal. During the interview, Axel discussed the pressures that come from being a third-generation wrestler.
"It's not really pressure," Axel said. "First of, every time a second or third generation wrestler comes in the WWE, there's always some pressure because of their dad's legacy, but it's not more now than when I first started as Michael McGillicutty. At the time, I had to prove myself. Now, my talent has been recognized, I was able to prove myself so the name doesn't add any pressure. I just do my things and do the best I can."
Axel also talked winning the Intercontinental title, having his sights on the WWE Championship, the best advice he's received from his father and more. You can read the full interview here.
