WWE Superstar Curtis Axel has taken to Twitter to complain about being under utilised within the company at the moment.
The former Intercontinental Champion is currently sitting in limbo with no creative direction, and has only been used during live shows or Main Event and Superstars tapings, so no wonder he is frustrated.
The last time Axel appeared on one of the WWE's main shows or a pay-per-view was a SmackDown episode on May 19 when he was in a tag team match alongside Damien Sandow.

This was also the last time the Axe Man had any sort of creative direction too, as he was part of a 'Mega Powers' gimmick alongside Sandow, as they dressed up and wrestled as Hulk Hogan and Macho Man Randy Savage respectively. After the Hogan sex tape release though showing him using racist terms, WWE fired him and stopped Axel dressing up as the Hulkster.
Part of a wrestling family, as he is the son of Curt Henning aka Mr Perfect, the former Intercontinental Champion has wrestling in his blood, and he made that perfectly clear in his tweet.
It was an unfortunate series of events for Axel which caused him to be sidelined. It was looking promising for him at the start of the year, with the Royal Rumble angle of not being eliminated and Hogan gimmick being received reasonably well by the WWE Universe.
However, this once again highlights a pressing issue of WWE not utilizing talent correctly. A move to NXT might be good for him, but a whole repackage of his character is now needed in order to try and reconnect him with the WWE Universe.
But going by how much effort WWE creative have put into the product recently, don't get your hopes up.
