The Interviews #2 - Max “Axl Keegan” Bauer On The Origins Of NXT & The Performance Center (2016)

March 23, 2020

We're back with WPAN: The Interviews! It's one of our most awesome, yet most overlooked conversations with New England talent turned NXT superstar Axl Keegan, known to us as Max Bauer!

FROM 2016: Pro wrestler "The Kingpin" Brian Milonas and referee Mike Crockett are back with Max Bauer, also known in WWE Developmental and NXT as Axl or Mickey Keegan. We hit all the points - his beginnings with Chaotic Wrestling, his connection with Tommaso Ciampa, wrestling by a pond, Max and Brian whacking each other with bats, his WWE dark match, getting his contract, FCW and NXT! Plus, the early days of the Performance Center, working with Ricky Steamboat and "The American Dream" Dusty Rhodes, being a part of the idea that birthed the Vaudevillains, and the heartbreaking series of events that lead to the end of his in-ring career.
