The life of a WWE Superstar not involved in the big title picture is often a very frustrated one.
You only have to look at the recent departures of the likes of Cody Rhodes and Wade Barrett to see that it isn't uncommon for mid-card talent to feel like they're being overlooked by the company.
Today, a video posted to Twitter by one such mid-carder may have just proved us with our latest example of a talented wrestler venting their frustration at their current status in the WWE.

As noted by several sites, including Wrestling News Source and UpRoxx, Curtis Axel's recent social media activity seems a lot like a thinly veiled shot at the WWE's creative team.
The former Intercontinental and Tag Team champion posted a video to his official accounts, in which various quotes from well-respected WWE stars hyping up his talent are spliced up with black and white images of him in the ring:
It's safe to say, that isn't the type of video you'd be sharing if you were completely happy with how everything was going in your professional life.
Now 36-years-old, the son of legendary wrestler "Mr Perfect" Curt Hennig has struggled to get over with the WWE Universe and hasn't exactly been dealt the best hand from creative during spells as Nexus' Michael McGillicutty or in his current run with The Social Outcasts.
Looking for a push
Just a couple of weeks ago, WWE Hall of Famer Bret Hart was urging the organisation to give Axel a bigger push, and the Superstar's social media activity certainly suggests he is of the same opinion.
Whether or not WWE's creative team agrees or not, is unclear. However, considering Axel's most recent match on this week's RAW was over almost as quickly as it had begun, it doesn't look like they are planning any significant changes any time soon.
Axel will be hoping his tweet can generate some momentum, otherwise, who knows, maybe he could end up heading the same way as Rhodes in the not too distant future.
