It's not bent much, but it already bent past its yeild point to cause plastic deformation. By bending it back the other way, you cause more plastic deformation in the opposite direction. I'm not exactly sure the kind of material or hardening used to make these axles, but I'm pretty sure it's not the same as banding material.
