Just a few weeks ago, Paul Heyman was playing with the idea of adding Apollo Crew to his stable, but Crews fought on his own this week on SmackDown. He also fell short, but he has nothing to be ashamed of.
Apollo Crews was not able to defeat Big E and Sami Zayn this week on SmackDown. He did put forth an incredible effort that almost saw him clinch the IC Title on a couple occasions.
Following his loss on SmackDown, Apollo Crews tweeted out a short clip from their match on the blue brand along with a message letting fans know that he’s not ashamed of this loss because he gave it his all.
Didn’t get the win, I’m not ashamed of that, because I gave it everything I had.
We’ll have to see if Apollo Crews’ determination will eventually find him in a much higher spot on the card. He certainly has people like Paul Heyman pulling for him backstage even if they are not explicitly aligned on television.
