Since CM Punk is currently off television, and Brock Lesnar is being written off for the time being, they have aligned Paul Heyman with a returning face.

Curtis Axel, who was formerly known as Michael McGuillicutty, and born as Joe Hennig, Curt Hennig's son, has returned to TV.  

Heyman formerly announced that the new name is a combination of his father's given name, Curtis, and his grandfather's Larry "The Axe" Hennig.

Axel has spent quite a bit of time off television, working in developmental.  Paul Heyman and WWE are acknowledging his past, and his theme music is even a remix of his father's tune.

Surprisingly, after interrupting Paul Heyman, Triple H announced he will face Axel in a match.  It will be very interesting to see how they position Axel in the match, especially with JBL praising his in-ring work.

Drew's Take: I had high hopes for Axel during his run in
