The former Alexander Wolfe talks about the reality behind Imperium’s message and reflects on his release from WWE.
Formerly known as Alexander Wolfe, Axel Tischer was a part of some of the formative moments in the black and gold era of WWE NXT. From several NXT milestones like the first-ever WarGames match to a run with the NXT Tag Team Championship, and even a run with Imperium in NXT UK, Axel enjoyed his time with the company.
Speaking on The Two Man Power Trip of Wrestling Podcast with Axel Tischer reflected on his time with Imperium and said that for them, the mat is truly sacred.
"What Imperium talks about is the way we kind of like, see wrestling, but more in a less characteristic, healing way," he said. "So we think you should respect the sport of professional wrestling, especially the history. You should respect the honor of the sport that people busting their asses and just to make a living and also just provide a show for the people and that the generation after can follow in their footsteps and also have a good living. Also, you should treat the business such, as you're homegrown. We always had fun and we always welcomed everybody."
Speaking about his relief, Tischer remains largely grateful for his time saying that he had the opportunity to live a dream and work with great coaches.
"I had a chance to live a life which was crazy because a lot of times, and especially nowadays, you miss a lot of things you do not have anymore," he said. "For example, a lot of times I wasn't aware that I have the opportunity to live in Florida. So I would be more enjoying Florida life right now because I don't have it anymore. But also there are some other things like working wise, which I kind of miss in that WWE, you have a sweet life because you do not have to think about anything at all, especially when it comes to organizing stuff. WWE is such a great company. They take care of you in so many parts and you do not even know it. So a lot of times right now, back on the English circuit, I have to take care of my own merch. I have to take care sometimes of my travel. I have to take care of my food and everything. So WWE, especially NXT, they took care of you in a really good way. But I also like the most valuable thing from WWE was all the knowledge from the greats. So I had a chance just to have an entire list of great coaches over that time. I learned in the performance center from day one to day here."
