Curtis Axel

Remember the professional wrestler Mr. Perfect back when Hulkamania was actually running wild in the 1990s? Well his actual name Curt Hennig and he had a son named Joseph.

Joseph currently wrestles in the WWE under the ring name (sorry, spoiler alert) Curtis Axel. He grew up in Minnesota so naturally, he became a Vikings fan.

Axel has not had as successful of a career as his father did in professional wrestling, but he was able to capture the Intercontinental Championship in 2013. With the victory, it was the first time both a father and a son had won the Intercontinental Championship in WWE history.

Recently, Axel has found ways to mix in his love for the Vikings with his job. He was even given the honor of blowing the Gjallarhorn before Minnesota’s Week 7 game against the Baltimore Ravens last season.
