Apollo Crews: Bio
Apollo Crews carries with him the immense glory of Nigerian royalty. Those that stand in his way may taste the steel of his brutal nature as well as total defeat.
With an Olympian's physique and agility, the hulking Crews combines the raw power of The Ultimate Warrior with the agility of a top cruiserweight, confounding opponents with a ground-and-pound game and a dizzying aerial attack. He was already the proverbial five-tool player when he went from the independent scene to WWE NXT, and his astounding record at Full Sail sent the Georgia native to the main WWE roster within a year of his debut.
Almost immediately after his move to Monday Night Raw in the 2017 Superstar Shake-up, Crews was once courted by Titus O'Neil, who wanted to sign the budding young prodigy to Titus Worldwide. He soon accepted the offer to become the first Superstar to join the brand, and the move paid dividends for Apollo, who captured several impressive victories on Team Red and even main-evented Raw in a gutsy showing against Braun Strowman.
He is now a member of the SmackDown locker room, and any Superstar that gets in his way will inevitably suffer the wrath of the real Apollo Crews. Armed with a newfound aggression, the dangerous competitor has fully embraced his Nigerian lineage, displaying unrelenting ruthlessness and backup in the intimidating Commander Azeez.
