It looks like Curtis Axel’s “AxelMania” gimmick is back and that is a good sign for Hulk Hogan fans. Axel did the full gimmick at the live event in St. Louis on Tuesday night. At one point, he did the trademark Hogan leg drop.
The AxelMania gimmick was dropped last year when the leaked transcript of Hulk Hogan’s alleged racist rant surfaced online. Now that the whole Gawker scandal is over, the belief is that Hogan is on his way back to WWE. His name has also been included on WWE programming in recent weeks during WWE Network commercials.
Axel, Darren Young, Sin Cara and Golden Truth defeated Jinder Mahal, Titus O’Neil, Bo Dallas and The Shining Stars at the show in St. Louis. Click here for complete results from that live event.
