Apollo Crews picked up an accent on SmackDown, and this week he came out carrying a spear with two militarized guards standing on either side of him. This is quite a change for the former U.S. Champion.
According to Wrestling Inc, Apollo Crews’ guards are Denzel Dejournette and Matrick Belton. Denzel now goes as Desmond Troy in NXT and he was signed in 2018. He last wrestled in December 2020 in a losing effort to Karrion Kross.
Belton was signed in the last Performance Center class. This is obviously a big deal for the newcomer.
We will have to see if Apollo Crews’ guards stick around. Since they’re both trained wrestlers they could get involved in his matches from now on. This could be interesting and help elevate Crews to an even higher level.
