The late, great Mr. Perfect was known the world around for his perfect demeanor, perfect attitude and perfect executions of athleticism. Wowing fans with incredible skill, tossing a towel from one hand to the other was sometimes all it would take for Curt Hennig to show his greatness. The word ‘Perfect’ in the wrestling world will always be synonymous with Hennig and rightfully so. His son, Curtis Axel, aims to follow in his father’s footsteps, hoping to match some of his dad’s perfect achievements both genetically and socially. Both men are receiving Mattel WWE figures just in time for fans to decide for themselves whether or not Curtis Axel can truly walk along side his dad in a wrestling ring.
Finally making his way into a Mattel WWE series for just the second time, Mr. Perfect sports a yellow and black singlet with white boots and a ‘perfect’ headsculpt. It looks just like him, but it’s up to fans playing with this wrestling figure to perfectly re-enact Mr. Perfect’s Perfectplex. This figure is part of the WrestleMania Heritage Series, so it commemorates Mr. Perfect’s participation in the biggest event of the year.
Curtis Axel’s only Mattel WWE appearance up to this point had been under the guise of ‘Michael McGillicutty,’ forgotten ex-Nexus member who left WWE with a whimper. Now, in Mattel WWE Battle Packs 26 (included with his boss, Triple H) Curtis Axel tears his way back into the WWE scene. With an adjusted hairline, more accurate body mold and tights reflecting his new name, Curtis Axel is ready to capture the Intercontinental Championship like his father before him and make a unique name for himself.
So who wins out, Mr. Perfect or Curtis Axel? If father and son stepped into the ring together, sparks would no doubt fly but the only way fans can truly know which performer would defeat the other is to re-enact what would no doubt be a classic match themselves with these Mattel WWE wrestling figures.
