Since joining forces with Paul Heyman and rechristening himself with a variation of his father’s and grandfather’s names (“Mr. Perfect” Curt Hennig and Larry “The Axe” Hennig), Curtis Axel his quickly established himself with victories over the likes of current WWE Champion John Cena, 13-time World Champion Triple H and 6-time World Champion Chris Jericho.

While Axel’s father, “Mr. Perfect,” would go on to have an awe-inspiring career after capturing that same Intercontinental Championship, before that night, things were not as perfect as people have come to believe. Like his son, the ambitious Curt Henning rechristened himself, reemerging in WWE with the new moniker “Mr. Perfect.” While he managed to maintain a perfect record for over a year, he only once defeated a World Champion during that time - a count-out victory over then-WWE Champion Hulk Hogan. While it is worth noting that “Mr. Perfect” also defeated future champion Bret Hart, his monumental return showdown against The Hulkster on “Saturday Night’s Main Event” resulted in a disappointing loss by pinfall for the surging Superstar.
