WWE will finally debut Commander Azeez, who has previously only acted as Apollo Crews’ bodyguard at ringside. Azeez will get his hands dirty in a big way next week.

Click here for our complete coverage of WWE Friday Night SmackDown from this week.

Next week Kevin Owens and Big E will take on Apollo and Commander Azeez in tag team action. This will mark Commander Azeez’s in-ring debut on SmackDown.

Azeez competed on Raw Underground as Dabba Kato. The former Babatunde was brought up to the Shane McMahon-led segment until it was cancelled. WWE didn’t want to run the risk of cross-contamination between brands so they nixed the Raw Underground segments.

After this match was made, Sami Zayn got in the ring and he took a Nigerian Nail. They are making Commander Azeez look very strong. We will have to see how he does in his in-ring debut next week.

What’d your take on Commander Azeez? Does his character have what it takes to make it? Sound off in the comments!

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
