5 booking decisions for Apollo Crews on the road to SummerSlam
Like his fellow ex-NXT Superstar Baron Corbin, Apollo Crews’ debut run on the main roster hasn’t gone as well as hoped. Crews is a former indie darling and a phenomenal in-ring talent but crowds haven’t really warmed to him yet, especially the casual audience.
How will they when Apollo has only really faced The Social Outcasts and Sheamus since arriving on the main roster?
The Social Outcasts almost always lose so beating them night after night didn’t help Crews in any way and his victory over Sheamus was by a roll up. Cleary, WWE has forgotten how to get new stars over. However there’s still time for WWE to rebuild Apollo Crews on the road to SummerSlam.
Here are 5 booking decisions to get Apollo Crews to the next level by the time SummerSlam rolls along.
#5 Finish off the program with Sheamus with a decisive victory
Apollo Crews has had decent matches with Sheamus following Sheamus brutally attacking him backstage during an episode of Raw. Even though Crews won their Money in the Bank match it didn’t really help him in the eyes of fans because he won by surprising Sheamus with a roll-up.
Even though WWE may be thinking that this win would help Crews while still protecting Sheamus, they are wrong. It didn’t help Apollo Crews and Sheamus doesn’t need protecting, barely anyone cares.
The first thing Apollo needs is a deciding victory over Sheamus on an episode of Raw. With that, he could finally put Sheamus behind and move on.
