Curtis Axel spoke with Brian Soscia last week to promote this past Sunday’s WWE Battleground PPV. Axel talked about what advice The Rock would offer him after their training sessions.
“After we’d get done training… he would spend time with me, the guy’s attention to detail is so amazing to me,” Axel said. “He’s one of the greatest WWE Superstars of all time. So to have him take the time to help me, to pick my brain and to figure out what I’m thinking about, that’s amazing to me. I was just down there to help him, but he in turn helped me.
He also commented on training with Brock Lesnar.
“I did the same with Brock Lesnar,” Axel continued. “He’s [Lesnar] got a whole different mindset when it comes to this business. So for me to get in the ring with both of those guys, and to have them help me… plus now I have Paul Heyman… I’m having the time of my life right now.”
