Axel speaks to about helping The Rock and Brock Lesnar get back into wrestling shape before their respective returns.

When I finally won at Payback, man – I just couldn’t stop thinking about my dad. Holding that same Intercontinental Championship that he held. He would bring (it) home and I would hold it and wear it as a kid. I now possess this thing.
