Welcome back. There have been a lot of wrestlers throughout WWE’s history but not all of them have been able to make the biggest impact. While several wrestlers have become famous over the company’s history, there are also some who have become more infamous for one reason or another. Someone who is more in the middle made his return to WWE television this week, albeit in a very different role.
This week’s edition of WWE Monday Night Raw featured a brawl between Seth Rollins and Cody Rhodes as part of the build towards their match inside Hell In A Cell this Sunday. The brawl featured several referees and producers attempting to hold the two apart, including former Intercontinental Champion Curtis Axel. This was the first appearance for Axel on WWE TV since he returned to the company as a producer just after WrestleMania 38.
You might be able to see him. Check out the brawl between Rollins and Rhodes:
Opinion: This is one of those cool cameos that doesn’t mean much at the moment but could wind up being the first of several appearances from Axel. The fans will remember him and know what they have with him, so putting him on television will add a bit of credibility to the segments. Sometimes you need some fresh faces in a spot like this and Axel has been cone long enough that he would certainly count.
What did you think of the segment? Who would make a good WWE producer? Let us know in the comments below.
