Bret “The Hitman” Hart spoke about Curtis Axel’s current role and push in WWE on the latest episode of The Sharpshooter Podcast on Bret Hart Radio. You can can find his comments transcribed below:
On what Bret thinks of the current push of Curtis Axel in WWE:
BH: I wish they would do so much more with Axel. Curt’s kid. It’s just such a shame.
On why he thinks WWE doesn’t play off of Curtis’ legacy as Mr. Perfect’s son more:
BH: I’ve never understood it from the beginning. Even the name McGillicutty or whatever that gimmick was. I just seems almost like impossible odds to turn that in to any kind of successful storyline. What do you do with that? It never made a lot of sense to me. I think that he’s really a wasted talent. I think he’s a real talent. He’s every bit the athlete and the performer that his Dad was. I just always thought that he was a little bit like Cody Rhodes where it’s like they never quite gave him the right things to book him to be the star that he was.
