Apollo Crews has been featured a whole lot more on Raw as of late. The past couple weeks have seen Crews hang tough with Elias and Dolph Ziggler in close matches that ultimately saw Apollo fall short.
However, this week on Raw, Crews defeated Jinder Mahal in one-on-one action fairly easily, and it has lead to speculation that creative may have something in store for one of the more athletic superstars in the entire company.
Dave Meltzer revealed as much on the latest Wrestling Observer Radio, stating that WWE does have something new in mind for Crews. The company wants to make Apollo Raw’s “Highlight Reel” based off of his unbelievable athleticism and impressive move-set.
In a promo before his match with Mahal, Crews talked about his expectations since leaving Titus Worldwide, and stated that he understands he’s had more moral victories than actual victories since being called up from NXT in April of 2016. However, with the company’s new attitude towards Apollo, he may start racking up real victories to close out the year, which could lead to a surprise 2019 for Raw’s “Highlight Reel”.
