Apollo Crews def. Alex Riley
Alex Riley has been out to show the NXT roster what a real Superstar looks like, but he faced a tough challenge in fan favorite Apollo Crews. The ridiculously athletic powerhouse absorbed everything A-Ry had and bounced back, connecting with a huge dropkick and hoisting his 250-pound rival up for a big toss powerbomb to get the three-count.
Crews had no time to celebrate, though, as Elias Samson entered the arena strumming away on his six-string and crooning a haunting ballad at Crews. Apollo has been daring The Drifter to drop his guitar and fight for over a week, but once again, Samson drifted away. However, Crews and the NXT Universe know that Samson can’t run away forever.
