This one comment by Axel opened the floodgates for Konnan to run amok with further insults. While Konnan's initial response revealed that he "had nothing against" the Intercontintental Champion, he also reiterated his original point: "u just have zero charisma".

Konnan isn't the first and only person to criticize Curtis Axel, compare him (negatively) to his father, or question his star quality. Axel responding to such criticism, however, is quite rare.
