Not impressed with this one, especially when facing monster factions. If the terror struggle is picked, then the Hatchet Man will contribute nothing to combat. If the combat one is picked, then he will contribute nothing to the terror one. So, being alone and opposed at a story, even when facing a single character, is almost akin to suicide. With a Pit Boss out, things change, since the Man may pick the combat struggle and deal some serious damage. In this case however, his utility is much dependent on another character. A character in need of another one to function properly is mediocre in my book. I'll stick with mr. Pan and Parallel Universe, thank you very much.

What if a story has 2 combat struggles to it and I use his ability on combat? Does his ability affect both struggles or just one of them?

I am pretty sure this guy affects a specific struggle, rather than a struggle type, so if there are two combat struggles there, he will only affect one of them.
