WWE: Initial Run
Curt Hennig joined WWE in 1982 and established himself in the promotion. This run in the
wrestling promotion would last only 2 years, with him leaving soon. He returned to AWA,
where he would wrestle alongside his father.
After 4 years which saw his technique and ability improve even further, he returned to WWE.
WWE: Undefeated Star
Curt Hennig received a massive push upon returning to WWE. His character presented
himself as being superior in every way over the stars he competed against. For two years,
he had an undefeated run in the company, and feuded with The Genius. His streak would
come to an end when the Ultimate Warrior pinned him. Following this, his loss to Hulk Hogan
would see a subtle shift in his character.
Curt Hennig would win the Intercontinental Championship from this position and continued to
wrestle at a top level until 1996. He joined WCW in 1997. During this time he would have a
rivalry with the Four Horsemen as his most high profile feud.
Return to WWE
When Curt Hennig returned to WWE in 2002, he still competed at a top level, something no
one expected from him. He would be involved in high profile feuds before leaving the
company once and for all.
Curt Henning Death
After a short run in TNA, he passed away suddenly at the age of 44. He had four children,
including Jospeh Curt Hennig who is a WWE wrestler, under the name Curtis Axel.
