Alexander Wolfe arrived at the WWE Performance Center in 2015. He spent years in WWE’s developmental territory, first as a member of the Sanity stable with Nikki Cross and Eric Young and later joining Imperium on NXT UK. Wolfe was released in 2021 and returned to the independent circuit as Axel Tischer.

Tischer has been working for the popular wXw promotion as well as the German Wrestling Federation in his time since leaving WWE. While he enjoys many aspects of the independent lifestyle, there are plenty of things he misses from WWE. He recently appeared on “The Two Man Power Trip of Wrestling” to talk about the things he loved about his time with NXT.

“I’m very grateful for the time. Nowadays, you miss a lot of things you do not have anymore. But when you have it, you kind of take it for certain, and that’s a valuable experience because it makes you realize that you should value the stuff that you have right now.

So, for example, a lot of times I wasn’t aware that I had 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. With 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 indie circuit, I have to take care of my own merch. I have to take care of my travel. I have to take care of my food and everything. So WWE, specially NXT tours, they took care of you in a really good way.”

Alexander Wolfe spent six years as a part of NXT and NXT UK. There were some memorable moments from his run, including winning the NXT Tag Team Championships with Eric Young. Now that he is back on the independent scene, there are plenty of things he misses about his old job.
