When former WWE legend and Minnesota native Curt "Mr. Perfect" Hennig appeared on the second episode of Monday Night Raw back in 1993, his son Joe was just 13 years old. This Monday night, Joe, now better known as Curtis Axel, will step into the ring himself. Now in its 21st year on television, Raw is the WWE's marquee weekly program, and its face-smashing drama continues to make it must-see television for hardcore wrestling fans and curious observers alike. Right now in the WWE universe, the champion, Daniel Bryan, has a busted neck but refuses to surrender his title to the evil authority (Vince McMahon's daughter Stephanie); John Cena is in the midst of a brutal feud with a Deliverance-inspired cult leader named Bray Wyatt; and there is a rock-star midget wrestler, named Hornswoggle, whose arch nemesis is a midget Mexican wrestler, named El Torito, who dresses like a bull. Don't act like you're not interested.
