Intercontinental Champion Curtis Axel was absent from the Hell in a Cell Pay-Per-View with an injury many wrestling sites were calling a freak hip blowout.

Axel took to his Twitter earlier today to dispel those rumours:

Axel was due to defend his Intercontinental Championship against Big E Langston at the PPV but instead Big E was shifted to Dean Ambrose and the United States Championship.

It remains to be seen just how long Axel will be out of action for.
