- Curtis Axel was recently asked to work some of Mr. Perfect‘s spots and mannerisms into his character as a tribute to his late father. At a few September house shows, Axel has tried to spit gum in the air and slap it into the crowd. 4 out of 5 times, it ended up with gum stuck in his hair.
- The Big Show’s contract has been outed to us from one of our insiders.
